When I was growing up, my family always thought I'd do it for a living. Perhaps not in the major leagues, but at least at a level where I'd get paid for it. At the time, I felt the same way. I was extremely talented relative to the other people that I played with.
As I became more and more interested in computers my interest in baseball waned. I became inflexible and lost a lot of my skill. I stopped playing for a few years, so coming back was hard. I'd be called an 'average' player now. I got better throughout the season, but I've got a long way to go.
Hopefully, I'll get there.
