A modern baseball player is a perfect machine, unparalleled skill entwined with preternatural reflexes, working in tandem with his teammates in a seamless ballet of synchronicity. These heroes grace our ballparks and television screens with but one mission: to take home victory for the 10th man!
But beyond their personal skills, baseball players need to be able to work within a team. They need to be constantly aware of the bigger picture, constantly ready to adjust their decision making on the fly in order to meet the evolving needs of the every changing battlefield that is the baseball diamond.
