“Our job as park directors was to make fans of the game.”
Barry Weiss – PlayBall! Alameda’s Sandlot Saga
Barry’s observation of the ARPD mission speaks volumes about a philosophy that extended far beyond coaching baseball. Get anyone excited about a subject and you have a motivated student who will experience success. Barry describes an approach to teaching that works on the field, in the classroom, and in life.
Barry was, and still is, a great motivator and educator. Fortunately, the professor is still at it as demonstrated by the recommendation he recently sent out to his “baseball friends” network. Barry suggests that fans of the game should watch this online documentary about the origin of baseball. Throw out everything you thought you knew…
Thanks, Barry. Keep the lessons coming.
