CARE: Scott Shannon

Our “C” word for November is CARE. In the CYITML definition, a leader who exhibits CARE: Puts others first; evaluates everyone honestly; understands everyone’s impact. It’s been a long time since we’ve posted to this blog. In fact, much of what you’re about to read was one of the last things we posted a year ago. See, because of both the timing (early November) and our “C” word (CARE), this is a chance to re-post … Read more

CONFIDENCE: Kelvin Herrera

Our “C” word this month is CONFIDENCE. The word can mean many things, but it boils down to this in the CYITML definition: Accepts constructive criticism; will try something new; positive attitude; views self as a winner. Keeping in mind the idea of trying something new, consider going to a new country for work, having never visited that country, and not knowing how to speak the language. In the game of baseball, so many Latin … Read more

Wiffle Ball at the Hollow a perfect success … almost

It’s safe to say our inaugural “Wiffle Ball at the Hollow” was a great success. People had fun in spite of the heat. There was free ice cream and coffee. And we exceeded our announced fundraising goal (more on that in the coming days). Perfect, right? Well, almost. During the lunch part, after our Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore finished the Q&A, I got back up to thank our sponsors and announce the results … Read more

Monday’s act of courage is a lesson to all of us

Forty years ago today, on April 25, 1976, Rick Monday had one of the best plays in the history of baseball. And it didn’t involve a bat or a ball or a glove. The following is a reprint of an article that Matt Fulks, Director of the “C” You In The Major Leagues Foundation and Dayton Moore’s co-author on “More Than A Season,” wrote for Kansas City’s Metro Sports in 2006 about that incredible moment. The … Read more

MTAS 2.0 is here!

Occasionally, I’m asked for “secrets” of writing a book. Although this isn’t necessarily what people are looking for, here’s a trade secret: most authors don’t go into a book project, particularly nonfiction, with the idea of adding new chapters and updating it for a re-release. On the contrary, speaking for myself, writing a book is usually so draining, mentally and physically, that I don’t even want to think about the subject again until the book … Read more

Through tragedy, Hancock helping others

From time to time, as this blog evolves, the topics might not center on baseball or leadership or what the foundation is doing. Sometimes it’ll delve into other areas. This is one of those times. The following, which has been edited for clarification or updating the dates, was published originally in 2005. As you’ll see, it’s appropriate today.   A blue moth. It sounds innocent enough. Harmless. Not tough enough to be a hero such as the … Read more
