Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Mindset


Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals made me smile this morning.   I saw on Instagram that he came out against the participation trophy. He told little leaguers that there should only be first place trophies.   I smiled, pumped my fist and said, “F*CK YES!”   There needs to be more of this. We […]
