Like Reynolds, Chris Iannetta has seen plenty and learned plenty since his Major League debut with the Rockies in 2006.
Iannetta’s advice is simple when he talks about hard work … but he also delivers an aspect that continues to grow when it comes to baseball. It’s truly a global game and players are making their way into MLB from many countries. That ties into his advice he has not only received but would share as well.

“Keep working hard. Keep learning as much as you can. Try to hone every aspect of the craft you can. Try to continually get better. Whatever your weaknesses are, strive to make them your strengths.
“Also never stop. You hear it a lot that, no matter how good you are, there’s someone out there who is getting better or someone out there who is working harder than you.
“Don’t get caught up in what you’re doing locally because there is an international talent pool that you might not see. Even if you’re playing really well in your local leagues, there are kids out there who are doing really well and may be better than you. In your mind, you may be playing the game against local kids, but really be focused on playing against everyone in the world and try to be at that level.”
