Senichi Hoshino: we don’t need no stickin’ meetings

Senichi Hoshino hates formal team meetings and likely won't rely on them during spring camp.

I hated meetings.  You can learn just as much about a player from the small talk that takes place during practice.  (via Sanspo)

Special meetings don't make things stick in player's minds.  If we do have meetings, they'll be short.  Communication [isn't just about] talking a lot, it can also be the exchange of short phrases. ... If a player makes a mistake during an exhibition game, I just approach them one-on-one and ask why they (for example) ran in that situation.  More than meetings, I'll just have regular conversations [with the players]."  (via Sponichi)
