When you join the NFL, you start from scratch. As long as I’ve been playingwhich has been since I was eight years old – the game becomes harder at every level. Little league, high school, college – they’re different stages you have to go through, and professional sport is completely different again.
Reggie Bush
I grew up with baseball; I played in Little League and went to games with my dad. But I, as I grew up, became more of a basketball fanatic than a baseball one.
I remember making the all-star team in Little League when I was around 11 years old. I was not a great athlete, but I loved it, so making starting second base in the all-star was great for me. I think someone must have been sick and they slotted me in.
As a youngster, I played in Little League, Pony League, and all sorts of amateur baseball programs growing up.
All American males are failed athletes, and it was big time even if it was Little League. It meant a lot to you.
My father was a Little League dictator. That really affected me, his control-freakery, his impunity, his arbitrary unreasonable power.
School work and intellectual interests such as music and the arts were not especially important to me while I was growing up, although mathematics, my favorite subject, was fun. Baseball was my first passion: I played sand lot and Little League and rooted for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Robert C. Merton
Most parents were, like, Little League coaches and all that. My dad was a wrestling fan. Instead of going out and playing home run derby with my old man, we just watched wrestling together.

I was nicknamed Skeeter in Little League because I was small and fast, like a mosquito flying across the outfield.
I would never do ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ because it’s just not fair. I am too good of a dancer. It would be like LeBron James playing little league basketball.
I played Little League. I was a ‘pitcher.’ But we had a pitching machine, so I was just basically an ‘in-infield’ shortstop because all I got to do was field bloopers six feet from the plate. I couldn’t hit, so that was pretty much my entire job.
I played Little League baseball, but I also played basketball. Basketball was my primary sport. When you play basketball seriously, a lot of times, through the summer season, you continue playing. So that replaced me playing baseball.
I thought the Little League fields were big. You look back now, and its obviously the smallest field you can play on.

I was playing little league baseball when Bruce Jenner was winning the gold, but I don’t think I was really paying attention at that time. It wasn’t until 1980 – I think I was 12 years old – that I thought, ‘Wow that’s what I want to do. I want to be on the Olympic team.’
The first sport I played was baseball. I remember being on the Little League team and someone pitching the ball to me for the first time. I was ready to no longer hit the ball off the tee, and an adult pitched it to me underhand.

My relationship with my dad was a little rocky, sure. The time that I spent with him was basically two hours of Little League practice, six or seven days a week, from the age of five until whenever. If we lost, there was no talking the whole way home. But that seemed normal to me.
I love watching players improve – even as a Little League coach.
A player should be disparaged if he gives less than his all, if he doesn’t give 100%, no matter what shirt he’s wearing. Whether it’s your national team, your club, or little league. Yes, there are friendly matches, recreational ones, and so on, but sport in its essence is about giving your best.
People don’t wanna take a chance. And I just feel like that’s what it was, it’s like that in every single level I’ve been in, from little league to high school and college.

When I played Little League, I looked up to the big leaguers, too, and collected their baseball cards.

I had the world‘s greatest childhood. I used to hang around by the batting cage and have Hank Aaron ask me how my Little League team was doing.
Generally in the Little League you’re up against a good pitcher who throws like hell. What does the coach say? Get a walk. Isn’t that beautiful way to learn to hit? For four years you stand up there looking for a walk.
Robin Roberts
My folks, I don’t think my mom or my dad ever missed a little league game or a football game.
