Professionalism

Troy Tulowitzki has a calm, cool and collective way of handling himself on the baseball diamond. He brings a Cal Ripken Jr, Derek Jeter type style that we don’t often see much of anymore in today’s game. In this day and age, we see a lot of emotion on the baseball field. Tulowitzki himself loves to show his emotion every once in a while, but even when he does, it is in a professional manner and is used to energize his teammates. When Tulowitzki is making a spinning play deep in the hole or running to his right to make a terrific throw on the run, you will always see him run back to his position or back to the dugout (depending on the situation) in a way that shows people watching, “you should expect me to make this play every time.”

Troy Tulowitzki makes a great spinning play

He plays the game in such a polished way, which rubs off on his teammates, that kids watching the game learn from his example, which parents can point to as the right way to play. Tulowitzki’s professionalism on the baseball diamond is a huge asset to his everyday game that is often times overlooked.
