Eric Niesen On His Release

I know this is a little late coming, but I wanted to pass along this quote from the recently-released Mets prospect Eric Niesen. After the positive feedback that was received in response to my interview with Niesen this past summer, I asked him to give us a few parting words as he leaves the Mets organization:

I just wanted to tell everyone thanks for the support over the years that I was with the Mets, and even though I am disappointed at this time I know God has a better plan for me. His promise in Proverbs 3:5-6 says

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.”

I will continue to use my baseball talents and see where God takes me. He will amaze me I’m sure.
I wish the best of luck to Eric in his future and in signing on with another franchise. With that kind of attitude towards an otherwise upsetting event, you have to believe he will have success in wherever life takes him.
