Here's something that has always confused me. How many 5'9" basketball or football players do you see in the collegiate or professional levels? Yep, very few. How many do you see in baseball? Quite a lot.

So I guess my thoughts are, as a parent, why wouldn't you curve your child's early sports dreams towards the one sport where their athletic abilities do not have to be dictated by their size? A true chance at a "future" in baseball is much greater for the average sized teenager than in any other sport. Yet the youth out there seem to think at 5'9" they are going to be the next Lebron or Cam Newton......
