Sports Psychology: Preparing The Royals For The Pennant
In sports, we teach kids valuable lessons like, “Winning isn’t everything. The most important thing is that you did your best.” But if you’re a pro athlete, that goes out the window. Your job is to win.
On Friday's Up to Date, we look at the psychology of the clubhouse in a pennant race as the Royals gear up for possibly their first post-season appearance in a generation. We also hear from a team official about what it feels like to be at the K these days.
- Toby Cook, vice president of community affairs and publicity for the Kansas City Royals
- Andrew Jacobs, sports psychologist and former team psychologist for the Royals
