Everything in his life came down to this moment. Sitting in left field with his glove in hand hanging over the Jays bullpen ready to secure history and a giant chunk of cash.

That's one of those where you don't sleep for a month. Not even sure you can ever go to a game again. Maybe you just stop watching the sport all together. One chance to snag a ball worth millions potentially and it slips through your grasp. Basically like winning the lottery and losing the ticket down a storm drain. How do you go back to work tomorrow and do whatever it is you do? You just can't. There's only one direction of life left to choose after this
