Just read this quote (from this article):
“What people don’t realize is that professionals are sensational because of the fundamentals.” ~12-time MLB All-Star, 1995 MVP, and 1990 World Series Champion shortstop Barry Larkin
Great stuff. You can see players in all sports who are magnificent athletes but who neglected the fundamentals of the game (or the profession). Those that have emphasized fundementals can anticipate, know where to be on the court, the field or the pitch. It’s really fun to watch.
