No one likes to lose, especially a sporting contest. Yet there are times when you need to lose so that the over-all goal is accomplished.
I attended a spring training game for the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves. It is the 7th inning and the Braves are up to bat. There is a runner on first base and no outs. The batter comes to the plate knowing that he is being ordered to lose for the common good. “Sacrifice yourself so the man on first gets to second.” He steps to the plate and bunts a ball down first base line and is thrown out. I watch as he enters the dugout and everyone is giving him hi-fives and pats on the back. He’s a hero! He is also a loser.
