He found himself in front of concrete walls in the West 4th Street courts and Martinez Playground almost every day of the week. After a year of playing, Rookie, who is one of the most famed wall ball players in New York, soon started to train Dan by encouraging him to play in the toughest games so he could learn how to handle the pressure which proved helpful during his biggest challenges.
