A 10-year-old Michael Kohn predicted he would play for the Braves

Thursday December 18th, 2014

Many 10-year-olds dream of playing in the major leagues but fall short. But relief pitcher Michael Kohn made a very specific dream come true.

Kohn predicted as a 10-year-old that he would one day play for the Atlanta Braves, and earlier this month, the righthander signed with Atlanta after four seasons with the Angels.

At the time, Kohn imagined his position being shortstop or third base.

Reality worked out slightly differently for the pitcher, but like the letter he wrote 18 years ago proves, if you dream it, you can achieve it.
