It’s not often you get to see a father-son team winning at the professional level, but this past Monday evening, one day before the start of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, something truly spectacular took place during the finals of the annual Home Run Derby contest.
In the finals, Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees faced Adrian Gonzalez of the Boston Red Sox.
Both men were calm, relaxed and focused throughout the event. Both were in no hurry to hit another one out of the park. Each took his time, waiting for the right pitch from the batting practice coach who stood before him.
But there was something different about Robinson Cano’s batting practice coach. He had the same last name as the superstar 2nd baseman. And that’s because he’s his father.
As I watched the action, I sensed that Jose Cano (the father) was just as committed to winning as his son, Robinson. Both shared the same goal, the same desire: To win it all.
This was confirmed when Cano went deep with the contest-tying home run. As he and his father walked toward each other to embrace, Jose, with commanding eyes held up his index finger and said, “One more.”
“I love you, Dad,” said Robinson as they hugged. No response from pops. Back to work. He’s got a job to finish.
When the action continued, it was fait accompli. Cano smashed another one into the seats, and the Home Run Derby trophy was his.
But wait. It was his and his father’s.
As the trophy was presented, both Cano’s, the elder and the younger, held it aloft for the photo-op.
“What you just witnessed was much more than baseball,” I told a friend. “It was the power of a spiritual connection between a father and his son, both of whom were committed to the same goal. Take it in because we may never see something like this again on the national stage.”
It’s one thing to have a goal you pursue with passion. It is quite another to have a bond with a family member who shares your desire to excel and works with you to the very end, making sure you achieve it.
This we know: Both father and son wanted to win the prize and were willing to work for it. It wasn’t the son all by himself. Nor was it a father pushing a son who doesn’t really want it. Both were working together in harmony toward a desired end. Both were in Automatic Success Mode. No stress. No tension. Just focus and DO IT.
What a magnificent sight to behold.
