Baseball tips on accountability

 

I get very skeptical when I hear about a baseball player is is known as being fearless………

I call BULL!

Why exactly? Well simply because fear is an emotional response that has been developed as a means of survival for over thousands of years. Fear serves a functional purpose. I think when people see a baseball player who seems cool and collected and is able to execute and come through in clutch situations, they automatically assume, “Hey! This guys is FEEEAAAARLESS!”

Actually, what he is able to do is perform on a consistent basis in the presense of fear.

As you all know baseball is a game of failure. You fail more than you succeed. What will set you apart from players that you’re competing against as well as team-mates you’re competing with for playing time is you ability to repond to fear effectively.

You can start by taking full responsibility of your baseball career.

You can start by being accountable!

Becoming a good baseball player is like going on a road trip!

 

We all want the secret to becoming a better baseball player right? In today’s baseball question Jason is wanting to know just that as well as what he should do when he wants to just give up!

Brooksie,

I think I’m about to hang em up! I’ve I just found out that I won’t be starting for my university this year during individual meetings and I’m really discouraged.

I struggled during fall ball last semester.

The truth is I feel like I’m not getting any better. I train and practice more than most players I know and yet I have very little to show for it.

Any advice?

Easy Jason…….never give up! Yes, it may be easier said then done but if results or lack therof is what is getting you down here is a great metaphor for easing yourself in the process of taking chances, being patient, and doing what needs to be done in order to become the best player you can be.

I hope this helps Jason!

Breaking down Ichiro Suzuki’s approach at the plate

 

So todays question comes Vincent and he is wanting to know…

Why does Ichiro look like he needs to pee when at the plate and what’s with the bat pointing thing?

The truth is, Ichiro is hands down one of the greatest hitters to play this game in the last hundred years. He’s ability to hit the ball where it’s pitched and utilize his speed has been a very innovative style of hitting. His approach is extremely unorthodox and yet his basis if very similar to almost every other hitter that demonstrates exceptional skills at the plate. He still achieves the essential aspects of a sounds swing.

With that being said, there is most definitly a method to Ichiro’s madness when it comes to attacking the baseball , executing correct hitting mechanics consistently and driving the ball hard somewhere.

In the video below, I demonstrate Ichiro’s mind set at the plate, what he’s trying to accomplish with his batting stance while trying to answer Vincent’s question about Ichiro’s quirky style at the plate.

Feel free to subscribe while watching the video and leave a comment below about what you think of Ichiro’s hitting style!

Enjoy!
