The Magic Of Baseball: The Social Wellness Power of Teamwork at Its Best

The benefits of sports in general, and baseball during the summer, are enormous.  Teaching skills, discipline and the social value to support and teamwork is an incredible value in terms of social and community wellbeing.  And it’s hard to describe how much……

…such activities can bring people together to celebrate the power of teamwork and community.

And while it’s important to teach good sportsmanship and apply the lessons to everyday living, it is also not easy to describe in words what a joy and how powerful such concepts are.  However, seeing is believing, so here’s a short message from someone whose opinions I value very much (my wife).  And take a minute to click on the link and view the short video.  Be forewarned…it may bring tears to your eyes and bring back memories of days gone by.  It will also conjure up thoughts about the beauty of the American spirit and the joys of someone achieving a remarkable accomplishment that is celebrated by all-teamwork at its VERY BEST!

From my wonderful wife:

 I love baseball  As a baseball mom, this brought tears to my eyes.  Jon played rec baseball for many years; although he wasn’t the star player, he loved the sport and being a part of the team.  He had many moments to “shine”, but I believe that what he gained the most from baseball was more than being the star player.  Over the years he had some really great coaches that taught and guided these young boys to learn the importance and rewards of working together, supporting one another, and being part of a team. 

Many thanks to all of the coaches that take their time to teach, guide, and help build character in these young men .... and still have fun!  So I say ..... batter up!
