Coping after playing days can come easy for some but it presents challenges for many athletes. If you played professionally or competitively at the college level there is a coping period once playing days are over.
There is an emotional aspect in leaving the game. It doesn’t matter if you were a World Series player, made a big splash in the game or ended your career in the Miner Leagues.
