This story is based on Donald living his life through his son and getting his dreams ripped away from him by his son because that wasn't Lil Don's dream it was Donald's. Donald had to accept that his dream is dead and can't force it into his son

Every day after 3:30, Donald would take Lil Don to work on his baseball training. Donald wanted Lil Don to get drafted in the MLB, he wanted to live his dream through his son. Lil Don was eight years old at the time. Donald took him up to Northwestern across from the High school. the field was old and very low maintenance, but it was the field Donald used to practice on back in his prime. Donald through a couple of fastballs to him. Yes, fastballs, Donald thought eight-year-old Lil Don was ready for that but in reality, he wasn’t. The last pitch was slow, and Lil Don knocked the ball out to second base shocking Donald with excitement. That day Donald knew he had a star on his hands. Donald would get happy at everything Lil Don would do that was sporty. Lil Don was his only son, so it was his duty to build his future for him in sports. Donald and Lil Don took trips out of state to Puerto Rico to play baseball and help with his resume. they traveled the world together until one day on April 3, 2006, when Lil Don decided he didn’t want to play baseball anymore. Lil Don though baseball was fun none of his friends from school was playing it, they were playing basketball and playing video games. Donald never thought he would have to hear those words come out of his mouth, but he did, and Lil Don meant it. That was the end of their father-son baseball fairytale but the start of something new.
