I recently came across this famous photograph of Mickey Mantle on Life.com. The disappointment he is expressing is almost tangible. I can relate. After breaking my leg and injuring my ankle in an April Rugby game, I have been steadily working to heal. The fact however that I must learn to accept is that for the next year I will not be the same player I used to be. It will take time and practice to bring myself to where I want to be. I am sure after my first few games I will, figuratively speaking, throw my batting helmet in frustration.
