Every so often in capitalist America emerges a story about those without who triumph over those with. The Kansas City Royal baseball team is headed to the World Series despite the fact its payroll is about one third that of other major league baseball teams. This is one of those few examples in our lives when the rich and wealthy can not purchase victory. Of course, in the political arena the Koch brothers are spending untold millions to buy this Senate seat or that congressional seat, but even the Koch brothers can not purchase an entry into the World Series. What do the Kansas City Royals teach America?
1. Focus on the player who is not hailed by the media as the next coming of Christ.
2. Offer opportunities to baseball players who work their butts off.
3. Create a TEAM of players who work together rather than having “Stars” who only think of themselves.
4. In the end, talent and teamwork can not be purchased with millions.
On to victory in the World Series!
