A lot of people have self-doubt.

Dylan Stoops is no different.

After battling through a pair of injuries while playing NCAA Division I baseball at the University of Richmond, Stoops was not selected in last year’s Major League Baseball Draft. He truly believed he was good enough to play in affiliated minor league ball, but things didn’t work out.

So he bounced around a bit, playing for the East Prospect Pistons early last summer in the Susquehanna League before playing for a couple of independent minor league teams.

His dream of playing for a major league organization seemed to be fading.
