But Damon says he was taught early on -- by his first big league role models in Kansas City, Greg Gagne and Gary Gaetti -- that there's more to baseball than just having fun, that you never mail in an at-bat, ever. Then he "learned how to win," he says, when he got to Oakland and was mentored by Jason Giambi on how to dig in and grind those big at-bats. And now he does his best to spread those lessons -- the daily doses of fun, the importance of every game, the art of the great-at bat -- wherever he goes.
