September is half over, and the race to the MLB postseason is heating up. With only a handful of games left, teams like the Rays and Yankees are fighting to win a pennant, while others, such as the Giants and the Braves, are clawing their way to a wild card slot.
What can separate a postseason team from a "wait 'til next year" club is positive chemistry off the field. "You got to be able to live with each other," says all-star shortstop Jimmy Rollins of the Philadelphia Phillies. "It's 162 games in a season. You got to be able to look each other in the face, and you got to be able to hold the next person accountable. You do that by building relationships."
What's an easy way for teams to develop their relationships? Kick back and watch a flick together. To help keep your crew headed toward a championship, sit back and enjoy a movie, then talk about it.
