There are times when you have to live life like a 32 year old pitcher coming off surgery.
That 95 mph fastball may have worked wonders for you in the past, but its just not gonna get the job done anymore. Things have changed.
You need to adapt. You need a new pitch.
It's tough for you to make the switch, because you view it as a change in identity. You prided yourself on throwing that good old fashioned heater.
Sometimes in life, the worst possible thing you can do is to hold onto something that just isn't right for you. Like the fastball. Yea, it has sentimental value. But that sentimental value is going to cause you to throw your arm out. Boom. Season over.
Learn a curve ball. Master your craft in a different way. Because if you don't, you are going to be forced into an early retirement. Plus, the critics won't waste any time fawning over the "coulda shoulda woulda's" of your career.
But if you do, you may just happen to find that your best years are still ahead of you.
