TEAMWORK

INDIVIDUAL COMMENTS ON THE MEANING OF TEAM
BABE RUTH
Major League Pitcher/Outfielder
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success.  You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime.
JIM PALMER
Major League Pitcher and Sports Broadcaster
You can't win if nobody catches the ball in the outfield.  You're only as good as the team you have behind you.
KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR
NBA Center
I don't get a big charge out of being the leading scorer.  The object of competing is winning.  I just try to do what has to be done for us to winb.  That might be anythin at any time--defense, rebounding, passing.  I get satisfaction out of being a team player.
JACK HAM
NFL Linebacker and Sports Broadcaster
This  is going to sound corny, but I really want to contribute my one-forty-fifth that goes into helping the team win a championship.  I remember one year when I made All-Pro and our team didn't do very well--the All Pro thing didn't have much meaning.  You can talk to your mother and your wife and kids about being All Pro, but that's about it.
CHARLEY TAYLOR
NFL Wide receiver
You can't do it alone.  Be a team player, not an individualist, and respect your teammates.  Anything you do, you'll have to do as a team.  Many records have been made, but only because of the help of one's teammates.
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
Thirty-Second President
People acting together as a group can accomplish things which no individual acting alone could ever hope to bring about.
Y.A. TITTLE
NFL Quarterback
My job is to try to direct the team over the goal line in some way.  It doesn't make a heck of a lot of difference whether it's 100 yards passing and 300 yards running or 300 passing and 100 running.
HOHN WOODEN
College Basketball Coach
The main ingredient of stardom is the rest of the team.
TOBY HARRAH
Major League Third Basemen
Talk about batting averages, batting titles and hitting .300 means nothing to me.  I don't even know what my batting average is.  It took me a long time to break myself of the habit of checking my average on the scoreboard before every at-bat.  Baseball is a team game.  What really counts is the standings--wins and losses.  Besides, statistics don't measure the full worth of a player.  They don't show when he advances a runner, or when he drives in a player from third with less than two outs.
JACK WHITAKER
Sports Broadcaster
The sports world is aclassic example of the game of life.  Much can be accomplished when nobody becomes too concerned with who gets the credit.  Great plays are made possible by unselfish and disciplined individuals who are more concerned with the end results than with personal ones.
ROBIN YOUNT
Major League Shortstop
It feels great to get this type of praise, but I enjoy the wins more because that's what it's all about.  We're out to prove we can beat anybody and prove we're the best in baseball.  My goal never has been to break records.  My goal, my only goal, is to help our team win a World Series.
VINCE LOMBARDI
NFL Coach and General Manager
Individual commitment to a group effort--that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
KNUTE ROCKNE
College Football Coach
The secret of winning football games is working more as a team, less as individuals.  I play not my 11 best, but my best 11.
WALTER ALSTON
Major League Manager
Baseball's a team game.  It's not just the nine guys on the field but all 25 of them.  No one man or two men can do it all.
MIKE ERUZIONE
Amateur Center--Olympic Gold Medalist
We all cam together six months before the 1980 Winter Olympics with different styles of hockey and different ethnic beliefs...but we made ourselves a team.  Individually, we could not have done it.
WAYNE GRETZKY
NHL Center
One guy can't win the Stanley Cup or the Boston Bruins would have won it seven straight years with Bobby Orr.  The better the team plays, the better you play.
JIM CLARK
Race Car Driver
Preparation is a combination of a lot of effort by a great many people.  The enjine manufacturers and our own mechanics, who strip the cars from the last race, test everything to make sure that we're setting up as good of a car as we can for the next race.  I get a lot of the glory, but it is not a one-man effort.  It is all these people working together very enthusiastically to make certain I've got the best car possible.
B.C. FORBES
American Publisher
Large-scale business today is spelled "Teamwork."  The successful teamworker doesn't wear a chip on his shoulder, doesn't look for slights, isn't constantly on the alert lest his "dignity" be insulted.  He puts the good of the house-the company or team-first.  And if the whole prospers, he, as anactive, effective, progressive part of it, will prosper with it.
VINCE LOMBARDI
NFL Coach and General Manager
Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about.  They didn't do it for individual glory.  They did it because they loved one another.
LARRY GURA
Major League Pitcher
As far as I'm concerned, you shouldn't keep individual stats.  Baseball is a team game.  The only thing that counts is how many games the team has won.
PETE CARRIL
College Basketball Coach
In a team sport like basketball, every time you help somebody else, you help yourself.
RUDYARD KIPLING
English Poet/Novelist
Now this is the law of the jungle-
As old and as true as the sky;
And the wolf that keep it may prosper
But the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk,
The law runneth forward and back-
And the strength of the pack is the wolf
And the strength of the wolf is the pack.
BLANTON COLLIER
NFL Coach
It's amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.
FRANK GIFFORD
NFL Halfback/End and Sports Broadcaster
I was a better football player because the team was better-the same is true today with Don and Howie.
KEITH HERNANDEZ
Major League First Baseman
The only statistics I pay close attention to are the number of runs scored and the number of RBI's because those are the production categories.  They are the only ones that help the team win ball games.
ROY CAMPANELLA
Major League Catcher
I am proud of all my trophies, but truthfully when I was playing, I never thought of records.  I just tried to do all I possibly could to help the team win.
BILL FOSTER
College Basketball Coach
There is no letter I in the word teamwork.
FRAN TARKENTON
NFL Quarterback and Sports Broadcaster
Quarterbacks don't win or lose footbll games.  Teams do.
SIDNEY POWELL
American Clergyman/Author
Try to forget yourself in the service of others.  for when we think too much of ourselves and our own interests, we easily become despondent.  But when we work for others, our efforts return to bless us.
PHIL ESPOSITO
NHL Center and General Manager
In the game of hockey, it takes six to tango.  You gotta stand up for your teammates.
TOM LANDRY
NFL Defensive Back and Coach
There's a misconception about teamwork.  Teamwork is the ability to have different thoughts about things; it's the ability to argue and stand up and say loud and strong what you feel.  But in the end, it's also the ability to adjust to what is best for the team.
BOB BERRY
NHL Coach
My coaching ph8losophy won't fill a book.  Stated very simply, it's to be prepared for anything.  There has to be discipline and strong defense.  What I mean by strong defense is not only having good defensemen.  It means all six men playing good defense at the same time.  We are a group...a team.
DIGGER PHELPS
College Basketball Coach
A few mistakes don't worry me; what worries me is when you make the mistakes and then forget your role on the team and start to worry about your ego.
JOHN MADDEN
NFL Coach and Sports Broadcaster
There is one key point about picking the so-called "great athlete."  It doesn't mean a thing if he doesn't perform with the team in mind.
RED HOLZMAN
NBA Coach
Work as hard as you possibly can within the team structure.
JIM ZORN
NFL Quarterback
I'm only a reflection of what our team is.
JULIUS ERVING
NBA Forward
When people tell me fans are cheated because they came to see me do this or that, I tell them that supposedly they ae coming to see the team win.  The role of a player should be results first, effects second.  I don't go in to dunk the ball or dribble behind my back for the effect of doing it.  Those were skills that were developed in the course of trying to reach my potential as a player.  My methods have created a reputation for myself because it has a certain effect on people watching the game.  If they like it and dig it-hey, that's cool.  But if they don't like me shooting a lay-up instead of dunking the ball, theyll have to realize that I'm out there to help the team win.
ALAN ALDA
Actor, Producer and Director
On the set, I like for everyone to eat together, share food and stories, and kid and joke because some of that comes over into the working day.  The comfort you estalish among each other shows on the screen.
JACK PARDEE
NFL Linebacker, Coach
The finest compliment that anyone can pay to a person is to say that he is a complete team player.  To deserve this tribute, your every thought , action, and deed should be one that you are doing for the team.
TOMMY LASORDA
Major League Manager
If you take 25 players, seven coaches, a manager and the front-office staff and put them all on one end of a rope pulling together, they will win.  They can't be stopped.
