The tweet sits atop Ernie Clement’s Twitter page, giving fans a glimpse into the RubberDucks infielder’s personality.

A look at @ErnieClem shows Clement talking into the camera before a game on the Fourth of July.

He’s wishing America a happy birthday and talking about the upcoming game with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

The tweet had 586 likes and 73 retweets as of Thursday afternoon.

“We’re wearing the black threads tonight,” Clement said. “We’re feeling dangerous, feeling aggressive and we’re going to hit bombs. I hit a ball at 100 miles an hour the other night. That’s never happened before because I have no juice. Therefore, I’m going to swing out of my shoes the rest of the season and hit absolute bombs.”

A fun-loving ballplayer taken in the fourth round of the 2017 draft, Clement is the perfect complement to a clubhouse full of future major leaguers.

He’s the guy players love and coaches covet even more.

In a 140-game season in which athletes come and go in the name of player development, it’s hard for managers to keep a consistent flow in the clubhouse and on the field.

That’s where a guy like Clement comes in handy.

“He and [Alexis] Pantoja bring a lot of energy and it’s contagious,” Ducks manager Rouglas Odor said. “You see a couple other guys get that way. The clubhouse stays very positive and energetic and they take it on the field.

“We’re not having the year we would like to have in terms of wins and losses. We’ll continue to work and stay focused and he’s a big part of that. He makes it easy to manage. To have a player like him is huge. It’s been a blessing. He brings a lot of energy day in and day out.”

The game isn’t played in three-hour spurts anymore, with the team turning in eight-plus hour days instead of just showing up and competing in a nine-inning contest.

Aside from the prep, there’s analytical study and meeting with managers to go over pitching, fielding and hitting tips for the day.

Every day is a new game and a new opportunity to shine, and that can be a daunting task during the five-month season.

“It takes stress off of everybody,” Clement said. “You can laugh and joke and have fun. Remember, this is baseball, it’s just a game. I’ve always loved baseball. I’ve always had a good time doing it. If I can loosen a guy up, it helps.”

That’s not lost on any of his teammates.

“Ernie is a special clubhouse guy,” starting pitcher Adam Scott said. “There’s not one bad thing you could ever come up with about him. He’s a guy that everybody can hand around and laugh with, but at the end of the day he’s going to put his head down and do the right thing. He’s a guy you want to go to battle for.

“Having a guy like that in the clubhouse is incredible. He keeps everyone enjoying coming to the field every day to do the same thing over and over again. Those guys are more valuable than anything you can physically see on a baseball field. Who he is is almost more impressive than what he does as a baseball player.”

What he is as a baseball player is even better than who he is as a clubhouse leader.

Since returning from the injured list on May 9, Clement is 94-for-340 (.276). He has 27 multi-hit games, 12 doubles, three triples, a home run, 42 runs scored and 22 RBI. He’s also had separate 13- and 14-game hitting streaks.

“It starts in my prep and my routines leading up to the game,” Clement said. “I take that very seriously. I work very hard. The fun comes with winning, playing hard and playing the right way. There’s a fine line between goofing off and not taking things seriously and getting down to business. There’s a mix and you find a happy medium as you play the game longer and longer.”
