"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard"



Work Hard

Talent is a good starting point but it takes much more to win championships in Division I or II baseball. In the 40 plus years at Bonita Vista, talent has lost to hard work, committment and opportunity. In eight season's we've developed something special at BVH with 8 straight play-off appearances. Three league championships, two semi-final finishes in CIF and two tournament championships highlight this change.  Hard work does not guarantee success BUT it does eliminate the chances for regret when the season is over.

The year Bonita Vista has a core of committed, hard working senior athletes, utilizing the opportunity they are given, is the year Bonita Vista plays in the championships.  Only solid preparation coincides with success. Seniors are key because they pace the program and establish the program's perpetual motion and winning attitude.

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard. That is the answer to many a high school players' questions about what happened to them. What happened to that guy who was the PONY league star, the freshman sensation, the sophomore surprize? Most likely they rested on their laurels. They thought they were good enough. They forgot that the competition continues and others are looking for ways to get better. If one stands still long enough, the whole world will pass them by. This is true in high school sports. Once a player stops trying to get better, there are others that will pass them by.

Don't be THAT guy. Don't be that "whatever happened to that guy" guy?  Instead, be THE GUY that continues to work toward a goal. Be THE GUY that passes the others. Practice with a designed purpose; play the game right. Do not allow your self to have regrets. Start with legendary Coach Wooden's definition of success:

"Success is a peace of mind which is a direct result of self satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you are capable."

Your character counts.
