Top of the Fifth

“As a celebration of the magic of movies involving baseball, at least one scene from a different film will be posted each day for the next nine days…”

Inspiration can transform mediocrity into greatness. Sometimes, this can be accomplished with a motivational thirty seconds from the “skipper” himself. Being proud of a win, he will speak as if the entire world is anxiously awaiting his infinite words of wisdom. Thankfully, I have located such a moment that happened to be recorded…for a movie.

Take a deep breath and prepare yourself to listen to a speech that transcends everything we know about the world (or at least comes pretty close).

Today is March 31st and officially Opening Day of Major League Baseball. The Houston Astros host the Texas Rangers tonight for the first game of the 2013 season. Accordingly, coaches and players are finalizing their lineups and strategies for the first few games. Cohesion is vital for clubs that want to perform at the highest level. It’s essential that everybody be on the same page. Once the first pitch is thrown, all the members of the team need to have, “all hands on deck.”

What happens if there is a discrepancy? Hopefully, there is a leader who can take his teammates through any mutinies. Otherwise, it could be “bad news.”
