Today's lesson is a quick one.
Take care of your equipment.
It doesn't matter if you play with a wood bat or an aluminum bat. Learn to Cherish your equipment, even your gloves and spikes.
In the big leagues, you get your spikes cleaned for you! For those of you not playing Major League Baseball, shine your spikes after every game and keep your glove looking new. Equipment is expensive, so take care of it.
All of these items are the tools of your trade. Respect and take care of your equipment and it will take care of you.
