It takes talent, dedication and a strong core to win the World Series… But to do it three years in a row takes something special.
Darnell Booker, General manager and coach of the three-time world champion Indy Thunder, talks about what makes this group of players so unique – and what it takes to run a successful beep baseball team in today’s era of the game.
As 2nd Vice President and public relations chair, Booker also discusses the strength of our league and what makes our organization successful.
At 38:30, Tim and Booker talk in-depth on what makes the Thunder such a special group of players…
Tim: Tell me, what’s the heart and soul of this team? What makes this team so special?
Booker: I just think it’s the chemistry, on and off the field, how we gel and connect. We all go out to dinner. We all hang out. We’re all pulling for each other. Like I said, no matter who’s on the field, we have each other’s back. This team is so mentally tough – because we did have to fight the rain and everything. We’re used to practicing in that. I think our team is one of the mentally strongest teams in the league. We put these guys in game situations in practice. We practice how we play.
