FCX Employee of the Month – Feb. 2018

Les St. Clair

Les St. Clair

Every championship baseball team has a great utility player that the manager can plug into the lineup any game to fill a gap where the need is the greatest – shortstop out for the night, put in the great utility player – centerfielder out, put in the great utility player – need a clutch pinch hit to win the game, put in the great utility player. These great utility players have to be ready to go at any position on any given night. These great utility players have to know how to play every position well. These great utility players have to have a commitment to success and accept the greater team concept.

FCX has had a great utility player for the past 25 years. No matter where the need, our great utility player has always stepped up and contributed. Never, ever concerned about his own needs but always focused on the greater need of the FCX team. His overall knowledge is impressive and continues to grow. Most recently, FCX lost a key position player and he offered to move into that position without hesitation – all the while maintaining his current responsibilities. His overall knowledge and commitment to FCX is exceptional.

Please congratulate FCX’s great utility player and our February Employee of the Month – Les St. Clair.
