MiLB Survival Tip #4 — Think For Yourself.

  I’m going to say this as plainly as I can: stop doing stupid shit just because everyone else on the team is doing it. It’s not a good reason to do something in any other walk of life so don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a good reason now. Being on a team is a lot like...
