Narrowing down my favorite sports story for me was a difficult task, so much so that I’m not sure I found it. However, this story is the best one I’ve read recently. I have always been a huge fan of baseball at all levels. If you follow it enough, you always hear about guys in the minors that will be the next Jeter, A-Rod, or Rivera. But what about those that never get a shot at the big time? I think this article brilliantly profiles the life of Mike Cervenak, a minor league lifer, someone who has had only 13 major league at-bats while playing in the minors for 15 years. I think Curtis does a great job blending humor and sadness to showcase the struggles of a type of professional athlete you never hear about.
