This week we are joined by former big leaguer and current AA coach for the Toronto Blue Jays, Sal Fasano. Not only did Sal play 13 seasons in the big leagues, he is also one of the top young coaches whom many feel will become a big league manager sooner rather than later. In 2011, he was named AA Manager of the Year while leading his team to their league championship.
Many thanks to Sal for taking the time to sit down with Next Level Ballplayer to talk about loving failure, why being able to handle success is huge, his definition of mental toughness, the type of player he wants on his team, his rare coaching philosophy and more.
