Mirror Neurons: The power of having positive baseball influences

 

Why do I love working with young ballplayers?

Because I get to have a positive influences on them…

…and if there even a little receptive to the advice I share – and pay attention to my demonstrations, most players see results pretty quickly.

It has nothing to do with my ability as a private hitting instructor but more to do with the incredible impressionability that young players have…naturally.

Young ballplayers are like sponges – ready to take in the data that he/she sees in their immediate environment.

In this video I will discuss the POWER of “Mirror Neurons”.

“Mirror…..WHAT?” You might be asking yourself.

Don’t worry….I’ll explain it all!

Simple enough right? Awesome!

Baseball Grit & How to deal with sitting the bench.

 

Hands down one of my most FAVORITE topics to talk about with hitters is the importance of having “baseball grit” or mental toughness.

The reason why I’m soooo passionate about this topic because it’s hands down one of the MOST powerful and important things any hitter could ever develop as an athlete.

“WHY” you might ask?

Because it separates hitters from the part of themselves that thinks things should happen in a certain way or the part that wants to avoid painful experiences.

Experiences that would eventually help them into become better overall ballplayers.

That’s precisely what I’;d like to discuss in this vidoe.

What I teach about Baseball Grit to the countless hitters I give private instructions to.

Enjoy!

The easiest way to overcome batting slumps.

 

It’s never fun….

Going 0-15. Or playing a string of games without getting a hit.

Nothing seems to be working for you and to top it all off….all your other team-mates seem to be doing just fine….

Playing baseball can feel like a lonely sport at times. When you’re struggling…it feels like things will ever turn around.

But it does. If you stay diligent…it always does. On one hand – hitting is simply a game of numbers. If you’re willing to deal with the down-sides of playing this sport you’ll eventually experience the up-sides just as well.

What I’d like to do in this video is give you guys a clear picture of what should be going through a hitter’s mind when going hitless for a long period of time.

Allow this hitting advice be your water during your dry spell and you’ll be hitting rockets in no time.

REMEMBER: It’s not alway a mechanical adjustment that needs to be made…

…often times it’s a mental, emotional and for those that take hitting seriously…and spiritual one.

Good luck. I hope this video serves you well this week.

What are your thoughts?

When was the last time you were in a hitting slump? Are you in one now? What adjustments did you end up making in your overall hitting approach at the plate? Did it effect your bat-speed or types of hitting drills that you participated in during your pre-game routine?

How to overcome self-doubt at the plate!

 

How to overcome self-doubt at the plate!

It happens to EVERY ballplayer who takes the field attempting to give it their all.

They walk up to the plate, dig into the batter’s box and try to put a good swing on a pitch that they can handle…

…all while trying to control and overcome one of the BIGGEST obstacles known to ballplayers.

SELF-DOUBT.

Self-doubt robs us of our ability to think strategically about an at-bat and keeps us from progressing the way we do when we’re enjoying the process.

Self-doubt keeps us from reaching our personal peak performance.

But not to worry – it happens to every ballplayer.

The great ones you hear about are the ones who know how to overcome it by demonstrating a few key principles.

In this video I’ll discuss how I teach these principles with my players on a daily and weekly basis.
