Something rare happened in baseball, 20 years ago today. Arizona Diamondbacks pitchers Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling were named co-MVPs of the World Series. This was unprecedented because in each Series, one player always stands out as the most outstanding performer.
But this year was different. Johnson and Schilling each pitched multiple games of near perfection. And that’s exactly what their team needed, as they prevailed over the much more talented New York Yankees in Game 7, by a score of 3-2.

Recovery Step: Another athlete, Michael Jordan, said, “Talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships.” The same is true in recovery. You can win, but not if you go it alone.
