I had a mobbed-up uncle that would knock you upside the head if you laughed during dinner…Sandberg is that uncle.
“Accountability, discipline and team play,’’ Sandberg said. “Wearing your hat backwards, having your shirt unbuttoned, and untucking your jersey on the field may seem like small things, but that lack of respect for the uniform is part of a general lack of respect for the game and how you play it.
“It’s not a big jump from that to deciding you don’t have to move a runner up because it’s just 1 little run at stake, and what’s the big deal, right?
“What’s nice about it is I’ll be able to stress that from Day One, and they will know what I expect and they will know my style. They’ll know that with discipline they can climb the ladder more quickly and will gain respect and work ethic. “It’s all positive, and I can’t wait for that chance because I think young people do want structure and do well with structure. I think everyone wants that, and that’s how we’re going to do it.’’
