Mets legend Ed Kranepool discusses how baseball is like a marathon, and how having a positive attitude is crucial in the game and in life.
"I was taught from baseball to be a positive person, I think it's helped me later on in life," Kranepool explained. "Baseball is a marathon. It's not the guys that win at the end of the first week. You got to go a lot of weeks during the course of the season. Remember you can fail seven out of ten times in sports, especially in baseball, and go to the Hall of Fame. You're a .300 hitter. That's only three out of 10 that you're successful. So you really have to prepare yourself every day to battle it."
He added: "When you have a bad day, leave it at the ballpark. Don't take it home. You strive tomorrow to improve yourself."
