The beauty in the game is hidden amongst so many different facets.

Let's discuss the lifestyle of a ballplayer with Mariners' top 10 prospect, Braden Bishop!

Daily Grind:

Bishop: I wake up at 7 am and take a cold shower. I make breakfast and do my vision pursue meditation app. I watch a show or do some work for my family charity, 4MOM. I'll head to workout and workout for about an hour and a half to 2 hours. Then I'll eat lunch and head to the cage. I'll work through drills and usually work pretty slow so I can get some good feels within my swing. I'll work up to overhand or machine BP depending on what I'm working on.
 
 
 
 
 
 
(VB- 4MOM is a charity set up by Bishop in honor of his mother, Suzy. Check out the link here and support the incredible charity and work Braden does.)

Superstition:

Bishop: I always pray before I leave my locker for the field before the game.

Game Day Grub?:
 
Bishop: Egg white, chicken, and avocado toast.
 
 
 
 
 
Favorite Game Day Drip:
 
 
Bishop: Cleats for sure. I'll bring out some custom Under Armours. I had all grey Curry 4s on the road.

(VB- The kid drips too hard on the field!)

Favorite Off The Field Fashion:
 
 
 
Bishop: White Button Down, Black Bomber Jacket, and Jordan 11 Gamma Blues.
 
 
 
 
 
(VB- A good bomber jacket adds the perfect amount of 'drip' to an outfit. And the gamma blues? Sheeshhhh )

Something particularly special about the lifestyle of a ballplayer:
 
 
You see parts of the country you'd never see unless you were playing. You learn how to live with limited resources with the idea that you could be at a different level or different city the following day. You live in the moment because you love the game and are thankful to be playing.
 
 
 
 

(VB- Incredibly well said.)

 

The daily routine, superstitions, game day eats, game day swag, and off the field swag is a huge piece of an athlete's life especially in a marathon game like baseball; where you're training basically year-round, and playing from April till September/October at earliest...

The special part about the lifestyle of a ballplayer is unique to each and every ballplayer.

Beyond being a great ballplayer and soon-to-be Big Leaguer, Bishop is a phenomenal dude, and this should help give you some insight on what it's like being a minor leaguer and big-league prospect, along with the importance of things like your fashion, on and off the field.
