Tuck in your shirt
 

Don't wear your hat backwards
 

Practice hard because you play the way you practice
 

It doesn't take any talent to hustle
 

Help your team win whether you play or not
 

Never argue with an umpire
 

Agree to let your coaches train you
 

Don't cut class
 

Maintain the grades that keep you eligible
 

Your girlfriend is not more important than your career
 

Your parents love you, but they don't know more than your coach about baseball
 

Maintain eye contact with all adults when they talk to you
 

Life is not fair. Regardless of what some people want you to think
 

Body language screams. It never whispers
 

Go hard all the time. Never walk on a baseball practice field.


As a batter/runner run to first as though it matters that you are safe.
 

Baseball reveals character it doesn't build it.
 

It is your coach's opinion of you that counts. He makes out the lineup. Fail to understand this point and you will soon be out of the game
