Being the best player on a team is impressive, but being the best teammate as well, is even more so. Playing baseball is to say the least very difficult, but to play with a team that is not there as one, makes it near impossible. Throughout my many years of baseball experience I have played on teams with many variations of team chemistry, but it was only at the highest level of team chemistry were we able to succeed in ways we that surprised ourselves. This success coming at the hands of my most recent baseball season for La Crosse Post 52, through this team we advanced through regional's to state achieving runner-up to advance to the National Regional at Sioux Falls.
It was at the beginning of the legion season that I came to realize how important team chemistry was. From past experiences of poor team morale and chemistry I knew how important it was, almost more so than the teams abilities at times. As stated, my realization of good chemistry's effect on a team sparked my will to be the glue that brought together the two schools that made up our legion team, and so I did. I now make it my mission to be the best teammate and player on the field whenever I am on the dirt.
