Joe Maddon (@MaddHalos) is the current manager of the Los Angeles Angels and former Manager of the Chicago Cubs. With the cubs, he led his team to the postseason in each of his first three seasons with the club, including 2 National League Division titles and the 2016 World Series. Maddon was named National League Manager of the Year in 2014 and has been working in pro baseball for 44 seasons. He's a three-time BBWAA Manager of the Year award winner, having earned the honor in 2008 and 2011 with Tampa Bay, and in 2015 with the Cubs. Maddon is one of only seven managers to win the award at least three times.

In this video, Maddon explains how every game and every play is connected. He emphasizes the importance of every teammate doing their job in order to help the team be successful, not only for today but for tomorrow. He says, "Yesterday's game is linked to today's game and today's game is linked to tomorrow's."
