Hitting a baseball hard | Baseball Concepts

Having the right approach

Baseball is a game of failure, and far too often kids (and even adults) develop poor attitudes and give up when tough times approach. If you can handle failing 70% of the time in this game, you will be successful. After all a .300 hitter is an all-star, a hall of fame player. I like this part of baseball, because life isn’t about what happens to us, it is how we respond to these situations that make us who we are. I love the way baseball teaches this. Baseball is a game of inches, and often times there are situations that we just cannot practice, defend, scout, or avoid. These are situations that call “the things that we cannot control”. So teaching players, to “focus on the things that you can control” is the most important mindset. Just like in life, in workplaces, in family relationships, we have to focus and practice what we can control and place our time and efforts into this focus, and not worrying about what we have no control over.
