Much of the discussion was a combined talk of hitting and other aspects of becoming a better baseball player. However, what really resonated was how he talked about the game as of way of developing day to day life skills. Face it, life can also beat you down and life experience can, at times, be very negative. In saying that, Scott spoke about self-motivation and how it can affect you in the pursuit of success.
Scott finished by talking about trust and how trusting yourself helps you compete from the very first day of spring training to game seven of the World Series.
All in all, the information was invaluable to everyone in attendance. The group was interactive and asked great questions.
Along, with Scott, was Ed Heather, Senior Advisor to the Terrier organization and twenty year scout with The Toronto Blue Jays. Ed is also the step dad of Rob Ducey, former Major League outfielder with the Toronto Blue Jays. One of the points Scott brought up was how to strive for success by watching the older players go about their business and he made a point of how Rob become an inspiration to himself in his pursuit of professional baseball.
A great day was had by all. Once again, thank you Scott for your generosity by providing us with such a memorable dialogue about baseball and life.
