Bobby Valentine Says Experiences in Japan Helped Him Learn Importance of Communication


Bobby Valentine has had quite the managerial career, one that ranged from New York to Japan. Those trips to Japan, the new Red Sox manager says, helped him learn the importance of communication.

The language barrier obviously limited Valentine's ability to communicate with his players early on in Japan, but for Valentine, it only reinforced the importance of making sure that each player thoroghly understands the message coming from the manager.

See the video above from Red Sox Hot Stove Live for more from Valentine on Daisuke Matsuzaka as well as the new manager's plans for his coaching staff.
