Each day when I walk through the Dillon doors, I reach up and put my hand on those words, words that have motivated, inspired, and humbled me. To tap the quote is to understand the value of effort for its own sake, the combination of passion and perseverance. To tap the quote is to recognize that the man in the arena is there alone. His domain is the extra mile, the early morning, the late night, the empty gym. Putting a hand on those words is a reminder of the lows and the highs, the wins and the losses, of the setbacks and the comebacks, of the pain and the pride. Roosevelt’s words speak to the dreamer in me. They remind me of the little boy that fell in love with baseball eighteen years ago.
