Dustin Pedroia 2012 Topps Golden Moments
As the 2014 baseball season begins to wind down for the teams not in contention for the postseason, I wonder how the players who show ‘Drive’ keep u their level of play.
The ‘Pride Factor’ must set in at some point. That, combined with the desire to not finish in last place may play a part in what still drives the uber-competitive player.
Evidence of this is in the way that Dustin Pedroia is still playing baseball.
He is playing as if he is 1/2 game behind the division leader and it is the last game of the season. I love watching this guy on the field, at the plate, and running the bases.
Dustin Pedroia epitomizes what the term ‘Captain’ is all about. When the Boston Red Sox return to the top of the division, and they will, he will surely be at the center of the action!
