Do you love playing sports? People love to watch sports and competition; do you ever dream of them watching you? It is not as hard as you think. You need average or slightly above average talent — that is for sure, but there are a lot of factors that come into play when you want to get paid to do what children love doing — playing sports. There is one factor that trumps all other factors when you decide as a child, that you have enough talent and drive to play a major professional sport for a living.(I am talking about baseball, basketball, football, and hockey.) Also called “the big 4,” since these sports get all the viewership and loyal fans.
