How do you convince a teenager he's not getting into the MLB?

I have a friend who's obsessive about getting into the MLB, and he's very serious about it. He's about as serious about it as a job at a restaurant. He's above the age of the typical 6 year old who wants to be a baseball player or a race car driver. The problem is that he doesn't show any skill above the average person. How do I convince him that it's impossible and he should focus his life in other areas?

Just tell him he should really have a back up plan, tell him to think about just how many people ACTUALLY make it to college for baseball, let alone being drafted..
