3 terms that todays players need to understand

Great stuff from Kevin Eastman
Hard Work
-It is the price of admission
-If you don't work hard you don't get between the lines
-Everyone works hard, so hard work won't seperate you. It will get you in the door.
-Most are competitive once they seperate from a group
-Inside Determination
-Desire to win anything you are involved in
-This is an elite group (guys that put in the extra work and wont stop until mission is accomplished)
-People talk about it but don't understand it
-Think about what it takes to be great
-Everyday trying to get better, think long term, have the attitude that you never have arrived


Opportunity follows struggle. It follows effort. It follows hard work. It doesn't come before.

Focus on the present

Each at-bat is a new day.
We don’t just have the opportunity to start fresh each day. We have the opportunity to start fresh each moment.We can learn from past failures and mistakes, but we shouldn’t get stuck there. We can keep future goals in mind, but we shouldn’t get stuck there, either.
The only way to reach our potential is to focus on what we must do now – this moment, the day – to perform effectively and to win.In baseball, a hitter mired in a slump can belt a home run on any pitch. A team on a prolonged losing streak can always win that day’s game.
