I love this — and I think it’s important to add that players are remembered and pundits talk about these averages. However, successful players also know when a fly out to right field will do more for the team than swinging for the fence. Kind of speaks to number 3 as well.

Great read overall with salient points. I played competitive baseball for years and it’s surprised me how much lessons from time there apply in professional life.
