By most accounts, Grant Desme--a standout MLB baseball player in the minor leagues--is due to be called up to the majors this spring. He's one of Oakland's top prospects. Last season, in fact, he was the only in the entire minors with 30 home runs and 30 .
So is 23-year-old Desme sticking around for the millions of dollars and off-the-charts fame that are sure to come his way? Nope.
He's walking away from baseball and entering a seminary:
"I was doing well at ball. But I really had to get down to the bottom of things. I wasn't at peace with where I was at . . . I love the game, but I aspire to higher things. I know I have no regrets."Pretty darn stout.
