Everyone has heard, “This game is 90 percent mental.” If it’s that mental, why aren’t we talking about it more to our younglings?
Now this is just my opinion BUT I would rather have an average player physically that knows the game, than a pure stud that cant think on her feet. Now just like everything, skills can be learned but overall someone that picks up the game and considers herself a “student of the game” at all times is the best athlete to have.
Every pitch the situation changes. We need our players to think more on their feet and understand that this game isn’t just throwing and hitting a ball.
How do you get better? Read about how the pros manage themselves at the plate, learn all the rules and make sure you are paying attention to everything. The more you know about each position and its duties the better you will be at yours.
