Essent Enhances Only Fully Integrated Software Specifically Made for Promotional Products

In a drill that English-speaking baseball manager Bobby Valentine used early in his first season with his Japanese-speaking Chiba Lotte Marines, he told the pitchers through an interpreter to throw behind the runner.

The manager meant the pitchers should throw to the last base that the runner was on to try to get them out. But the team went through the drill several times without the pitchers throwing behind the runners. A player who spoke some English eventually told the flabbergasted Valentine the problem.

"We don’t want to injure our teammates by throwing the ball at their behinds,” the player said.

The miscommunication probably drew a few laughs since it cost Valentine and his team only a bit of practice time. But when miscommunications occur in the promotional products industry, they can lead to more dire consequences -- lost time and money.
