**SUCCESS**

1. NEVER QUIT (Make this a habit in everything you do. Don't take the easy way out and be a quitter.)
2. Think in terms of TEAM success. Learn to get along with one another, to help one another, and to enjoy playing together as a TEAM.
3. Never be annoyed by a coach's criticism. Be worried when you receive no criticism, as this shows you haven't made yourself noticeable yet or you are slipping.
4. Do not make excuses-make good!
5. Plan to be a hard worker, welcome tough situations.
6. Practice develops habits of behavior; only perfect practice, therefore makes for perfection.
7. DO NOT EVER THINK YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO MISS PRACTICE: NO ONE IS GOOD ENOUGH NOT TO BE ABLE TO MAKE HIMSELF A LITTLE BETTER FOR THE TEAM'S SAKE.
8. A player who places personal glory and success above the best interests of the team is a liability rather than an asset.
9. Baseball and academics come first; everything else is secondary during baseball season.
10. Have a tough mental attitude.
