i was on the lincoln way east freshman baseball team and played metro/travel ball my whole life before that. then i broke my hand and i lost so much velocity in my pitching that i just kinda quit. music was more of my passion anyways!
Haha similar situation for me, except my career ending injury was a 80mph fastball to the jaw that wired me shut for 6 weeks in between junior and senior year. Never went back, and really haven't regretted it with guitar and music to keep me busy.
