Any athletes out there?

A professional amateur bowler. Meaning that I've qualified to be a professional for over the last decade, but have chosen to say in the amateur ranks. Up until the last year or so, the money in the amateur ranks has been better than the pros while having less expense to earn the money and easier competition. Injuries have also hindered my progress the last few years. Not sure if I'll be giving the tour a shot or not. Probably at least a year away from making a solid run at it if I choose to do so. We'll see.

As to other sports, high school baseball, basketball, track, and tennis. Didn't go any higher than high school with any of them. Was supposed to do tennis in college, but I didn't wind up going to college.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Starting 1B, 3 years for my HS Varisty baseball team. Came in 3rd in the state my Senoir year. I've been playing baseball since I was 5. Just recently started playing in a fast-pitch softball league where I'm the Catcher/1B (no one else was dumb enough to be the catcher). I did do some spot catching in HS, but not enough to be any good at it. I've been to 3 try-outs for MLB teams (Cincy, Pittsburgh, Cleveland). Came close to making the cut for Cincy (made it through the 3 day try-out and was one of the last ones cut on the 3rd day).

I played one year of basketball in HS (just to help get in shape for my senoir year of baseball).

I was a goalie in a rec hockey league for 4 years (I figured that since was able to be a goalie, I could also be a catcher NOT TRUE).

I no longer play hockey or basketball, but will forever continue to play baseball/softball (had a brief stint in a slow pitch league. it really screwed up my swing, so i quit). I am currently in 2 different 18 - up baseball leagues. They will have to cart me off the field to get me to stop playing.

I was a swimmer for like 12 years. Top 10 in the country a couple times. Qualified for the 1996 Olympic Trials. Alas, never made it to the big stage. Swam club through high school, then for the University of Arizona for a few years.

Now it's just pickup hoops and golf.

I played baseball my whole life until I went to college.

CF, RF, LF Leadoff batter in Highschool...State Champs my junior year.

American Legion Allstar....

Played travel and during the summer we'd play around 40+ games.

Played hockey too in highschool but I was terrible.

Now I play softball.

I skied 33 days this year. So thats my main sport although I mountain bike now during the summer and fly fish
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Started playing Nintnedo in 89, went to sega, playstation then followed up with a little N64. Went pro with Xbox live and now I train with the best in Halo 2. Online record doesn't reflect my training with Bungie Mods. Yet to play for cash.
