For this part of the assignment I can talk to multiple people if I feel like it is needed because I know a lot of people who have gotten the chance to play Major League Baseball or got a chance to be in a major league team's organization. I think that this part will allow to to gather good information about what it takes to make it to the major league level because I am going to be answer questions inbetween my main questions to gather as much information as possible.
