According Yale University’s Youtube page, Class Day is an event that “includes the awarding of academic, artistic, and athletic prizes; the celebration of undergraduates; and an address by a notable speaker. This year’s speaker was Theo Epstein, world’s greatest leader and a 1995 Yale grad.
His speech, naturally, focused on Game 7 of the 2017 World Series. The Cubs’ President of Baseball Operations talked about the roles many individuals played in the defining game, as well as the lessons to be learned from each. You can watch his full speech below, or if you prefer, you can read the transcript here.
Note: The video should open when Epstein is introduced. If it doesn’t, he begins at 13 minutes and 38 seconds.
