It's no surprise that your kids' odds of becoming a pro athlete are VERY slim, no matter how good they seem in high school.

Well, there's a new study called 'The Odds of Success,' and it has some actual numbers to demonstrate just how long those odds are.  Here's how it breaks down for each major sport . . .

1.  Men's Ice Hockey, 1-in-598

2.  Baseball, 1-in-659

3.  Football, 1-in-4,233

4.  Men's Soccer, 1-in-5,768

5.  Men's Basketball, 1-in-11,771

6.  Women's Basketball, 1-in-13,015

There are also some other stats . . . like you have a 1-in-20 MILLION chance of becoming a SAINT.  A real saint, not a New Orleans Saint. 

And you're 3.4-times more likely to die by lightning strike than to be elected to the U.S. Congress . . . although, there are plenty of other jobs where you can sit around doing nothing that are easier to get.
