Isaias Quiroz, Texas Rangers, on the Power of Coaches as Mentors
We asked Isaias Quiroz, Texas Rangers, to share his perspective on the power of coaches as mentors. Here’s his take.
“I’m very fortunate to have mentors in my life. The biggest thing for me is learning from them…That helps me day in and day out, so that I am always ready and prepared…” – Isaias Quiroz
I think what you can expect when a coach mentors an athlete is a lot of growth. I am very fortunate to have a couple mentors in my life that keep pushing me every day and keep helping me strive to be the best me I can be.
The biggest thing for me is learning from them and they share their experiences with me. That helps me day in and day out so that I am always prepared to face anything I have that day. The game of baseball is a crazy game and life is a crazy game. Everything that they teach me, I always have in the back of my mind so that I am always prepared and never caught off guard. I thank them for what they have taught me.
