3 Things Chris Yee (a Houston fan) Learned From a New York Yankee Fan

By Chris Yee | Uncategorized | May 23

We’re big sports fans here at Zenith and that includes baseball. So when we came across this truly touching story from ESPN, we knew had to share it with you.

Our three takeaways from the article transcend sport and yes, they even apply to the chemical industry and the world of work.

1. President Jimmy Carter (and before him, Mark Twain) said we should go out on a limb because that’s where the fruit is. Elyjah, the young man in the ESPN story, did just that. He stepped out of his comfort zone to get DJ Lemahieu’s autograph.

2. Some people genuinely want to help others so don’t be afraid to ask for help. The story of the lost baseball cards touched many, many people who were moved to action. But first, these people had to know of Elyjah’s plight and his mother’s initial post on social media was the catalyst for all those subsequent actions.

3. What initially seems like a devastating loss can be a huge blessing. The first days after Elyjah lost his baseball card collections were very, very rough. But he ultimately received a TON of great memorabilia — priceless stuff — from all over the nation.

Now, it’s time for you to step out of your comfort zone, move into action, and go get you autograph!
