Yeah. Baseball players have to delicately balance work / family just like the rest of us do in our jobs. Some of us sacrifice family life in order to get ahead at work. Some of us will never sacrifice family time for work. I'm sure baseball players are the same. Maybe early on in your career you can make that sacrifice more easily, but once you've been married for awhile and have kids, it's not so easy. That goes for anyone with any type of career, baseball player, truck driver, or office professional.
