My favorite “Focus Building” hitting drill!

.

So it seems like sometimes, your kid isn’t into it.

He doesn’t want to listen to the advice of the “Baseball Dad”.

What is a baseball dad to do when he gets the “I know dad!” response?

And then hears his kid say “Okay” when someone else says the SAAAME THING.I hear about this “pan point” from many a parents.

If you’re a baseball parent that can relate to this…trust me, you’re NOT ALONE! Here’s my advice.

Step of the gas, take all the pressure of performing in practice or competition, and turn EVERYTHING into a measurable game.

One of the ways that I do this is by playing a game that I made up for my private lessons called “Tensies’.

Learn how I was able to guide my young “bat-speed” grass hoppers into players who were demonstrating:

  • higher levels of focus and concentration by engaging their peak interest in the swing repetition.
  • a mature example of focusing on something you CAN control which produces self confidence
  • a sense of progress since they’re able to see tangible results in the form of higher levels of consistency with the rules of the actual game.

You can’t beat that.

Listen in on how I did this at one of my Bat-Speed Boot Camp events and see what lessons were learned.

Not hitting? Blame the baseball!

Not Hitting? Blame The Baseball!

 

As you know, sometimes the solution to a problem can be quiet counterintuitive.

Sometimes the answer is the EXACT opposite to the solution that we initially proposed in our mind!

For example, if a young ballplayer is struggling during batting practice, the logical response from a parent or coach would be as follows:

“Concentrate!”

“Try harder!”

“Apply more effort”

“Take it more seriously”

Here is what I’ve noticed while giving private bat speed lessons.

To a young player, concentrating harder to them, means squinting their eyes, gritting their teeth, tightening their grip and puckering up.

Like their parents, they’re are unaware that the process of concentration first begins with letting go and yielding to the flow of the process.

This is very important.

How do I get young kids to do this?

EASY PEASY!!

I get them to reframe how they’re perceiving the practice and their performance.

The trick is to make things fun with ZERO RISK! (Key phrase.)

A child’s mind is spontaneous so my hitting lessons have to follow suite.

I’ll show exactly how I approach doing this in this video!

Enjoy!

How small players hit for BIG POWER like Jose Altuve!

 

It’s 2009. I’m training with the Padres, taking ground balls during batting practice. The player I’m training with asks me, ” Hey, have you ever heard of this guy named Jose Altuve?”

Nope, I replied. Doesn’t ring a bell.

“Well he’s supposedly the Astros’ number one prospect, and he’s only about 5″5 a buck 60.”

“Oh yeah? Good for him.” I was thinking to myself. I just wanted to get through this workout in one piece

Little did I know that a few years later, Jose Altuve would be leading the league in hitting while making web gems in the all-star game.

He’s a true athlete and a PERFECT example that you DO NOT have to be BIG to play this game.

For all of you players who have been told, that you need to play small ball since you’re small, watch this video over and over and over again until this idea sinks in…

…being a good ballplayer is about knowing how to play this game the right way.

Not about having a “GOOD baseball body”.

Fewer and fewer scouts are impressed by a projectable body these days as they are by players who have baseball instinct. It will behoove you to embrace this idea whether you’re big or small.

I hope you enjoy this video.
