Field of Dreams, although I never understood it, a film based on the dream of becoming a baseball player and be able to enjoy the game forever, never gets old or too tired to play, like Ernie Banks said, “Let’s play two. “referring to a double play instead of a single ball game.
St. Louis Cardinals, despite all odds, itched and scratched their way to the platform of the National League Wild Card, the last day of a season of 162 games. Who said those losses early in the season will not come back to haunt you?
The Cardinals play in their field of dreams begins with qualifying on Friday and if they continue to win the World Series or is knocked out in three consecutive games, the reason they are discussed in the playoffs for future reference, all coaches small League to the majors.
And what is the reason why, and Atlanta Braves are the team of the National League wild card? In my humble opinion, was the work team, which met from 40 + players. I understand the term teamwork is probably the phrase most used in more than all the sports, but also the most abused, which is the most abused phrase in sports.
Teamwork in baseball, can be described as flowing movements turn a double play or the perfect execution of a throw relay, which denies to score the winning run to the plate, or a perfect sacrifice bunt , will deliver the benefit of the team. This is not the definition, or should not, of teamwork, because they are elements of teamwork, which is sharpened by practice and dedication, both of which are crucial for a team to win . But … this is not the team.
Let’s take a closer look at the Cardinals as the season progressed, and see where teamwork was the variable that changed the office. Larussa, the Cardinals Future Hall of Fame manager, is always moved to the players in and out of line, switching positions of the main reasons of personnel, first know him. Perhaps it was to build a diverse team is able to adapt to injury or collapses, or to bring the experience of young players Cardinal farm clubs are quite effective to offer. Whatever the motivation, there is nothing new, and, of course, that the eight games behind the Braves entering the month of September is not too successful, however, is not this year.
Suddenly, the Cardinals began functioning chain of victories together, something that had not been able to do all season. As the Braves went into a tailspin, the Cardinals continued to play winning baseball excellent, with some technical problems to turn a 6-run for the Mets in the ninth inning and lost to Houston, one of the worst teams in baseball. However, as the whole team has been relatively resilient. Why?
As much as I want to say as a former coach, has coached, but he was not. Players have a team and the team began to produce victories and as in most things, success breeds success. What I mean by the team was a team that seems a bit stupid?
The teams do not care about each other. Whenever valid for 40 + people together, a baseball player or any other sport, you must remember that 40 people are putting together. There is no way you will never have 40 people to each other, it’s just human nature. There will always find someone repulsive or who are desperately trying to do your job and livelihood and self-preservation will kick in even if it is not openly visible.
This is where the Cardinals suddenly changed and become an outstanding team. Each player was really worried about the success of others, because the team’s success depends on it. The infectious enthusiasm of a rookie of the ignorance of minors was adopted by the veterans, instead of being upset. The player who was considered equally qualified or better than the right fielder has become thankful for the recognition of being a defensive player and play in the eighth or ninth grade.
