FROM THE WINNINGEST COACH IN NCAA DIVISION I HISTORY, A GUIDE TO PRACTICING PERFECT AND PLAYING FOR FUN While the statistics speak for themselves, Augie Garrido, the legendary baseball coach, is far from a a??win-at-all-costsa?? leader. Rather, he focuses on building men of quality, teaching that lessons learned on the diamond can be applied to any facet of life. Life Is Yours to Win offers a refreshing approach to seizing lifea??s opportunities and understanding that trophies are not the true goal. Garridoa??s advice includes: a?? BE A PLAYER, NOT A PROSPECTa??Garrido once used a game of catch with his Labrador retriever to show a team playing without heart the character it takes to be fully engaged as a ballplayer. a?? STEP UP, SUPERMANa??Garrido stages a costumed Superhero Scrimmage each Halloween to remind his players that their inner superhero is just waiting to be realized. a?? THE FEARLESS FIELDa??Master fear and other emotions so that they dona??t paralyze you. Renting a hearse and placing a casket on the pitchera??s mound helped a slumping Cal State team a??burya?? their fears and put past losses behind them. a?? BUDDHA AT BATa??Small ball is not glorified like the home run, but the bunt does advance the runners and puts runs on the board. Small successes add up to big victories on and off the field. Garridoa??s coaching methods are often unconventional, but as seen in Life Is Yours to Win, his creativity and wry humor always lead to unforgettable lessons.
