It takes a whole team to buy into a legitimate national championship goal for a national championship to even be reasonable. There is not one team in the country regardless of their affiliation (DI, DII, DIII, etc) that doesn’t have some sort of postseason aspiration. Each team creates their own brand of baseball, has their own motto, their own label, their own habits that they play by. At tech it is no different. We are reminded frequently by our coaching staff to treat today like it’s your last day you may ever pick up a baseball. This isn’t an original mind set but nonetheless the motto stays the same. There are days where the game is taken for granted, I’m guilty of this as most of us are, but the fact that our inter-squads or practices posses game time intensity isn’t a fluke. You play how you practice. Competition is what drives the athlete, it’s why we play the game. Each team out there could probably write a book on sayings they use throughout their year together. I think it’d be interesting to televise for the public the conversations that go on during a teams practices and games, it’d probably have to be a SHOWTIME or HBO type series do to some unforeseen content , but could prove as an entertaining and educational type program for the baseball fan that may not of gotten the opportunity to experience what we have so fortunately been able to.
