There are many people who try out for a sports team. However, there are only so many spots available. There’s never over 40 people on the MLB roster, and there’s only 9 of them on the field at a time. There’s no room for the 41st best player, and the really good back up can’t be on the field if there are already 9 players there. There’s only 5 pitchers in a rotation with a few exceptions.
The 40 people who made it are the ones that can be relied on. If one of them struggles badly, they are simply replaced. The 40 people who are on the roster right now won’t be going down to the minor leagues anytime soon.
The people who already have talent stay on. The people who aren’t on the roster that have talent are the ones that have to wait for a spot to open. On a professional level, they might not be able to deliver like they did in their high school. You can ask Billy Bean about that.
Not everyone makes the cut. There are more than 40 people who deserve to be on the roster. However, due to limited space, not everyone who deserves to play gets to play.
The only way to make the cut every time is to choose yourself. If you choose yourself, you already made it through the cut. If you got denied an entrepreneurial program, create your own entrepreneurial program. If you didn’t make the sports team, join another sports team and practice a lot. Choose yourself because there is no one better for you to choose.
