Q. Coaching: S.P.E.E.C.H.

ABC Camp Hitting Discussion

A. Words we strive to live by between the lines. The following is the six characteristics of "team" that I implemented at my high school baseball program. Baseball coaches, feel free to use them if you like them. Baseball players, feel free to live them out. Implementing and teaching these points lead to the most gratifying season I have ever been a part of, and we barely went .500.

1. Self-Control. Emotions will not get the best of us. Temptations will not distract us. We will make decisions on and off the field that are in the best interest of the people that depend on us. 2. Perseverance. We will never give up. We will never stop giving our best effort. Success means getting up one more time than you were knocked down. 3. Edification. We will build each other up. We will consider how our attitude contributes to the building a positive team environment. Individually we will focus on making everyone else around us better. 4. Empathy. We will treat people like we want to be treated. We will put ourselves in the shoes of others to try to experience what they are experiencing. We will empathize with our opponent, with each other, and with people that surround us in our daily lives. 5. Cause. We will live for a cause that is greater than ourselves. We will identify causes that are worthy of our focus and live to support them. Our team is a cause. Contributing to an environment where players forget about themselves and live to meet the needs of others is a cause worthy of our devotion.

6. Humility. We are no better than our opponent. We are no worse than our opponent. We are people born with certain abilities that allow us to play a game that we love. We will work hard to sharpen our skills and get the most out of our abilities, but realizing, that there is nothing that we have done to deserve this privilege. We will treat each win or loss as a privilege for having been able to put our cleats on and compete along side people that we care about. We will win and lose with class.
