Josh Donaldson Success Principles: Tricking Your Baseball Mind & Valuing Learning Over Success.

Some of you may have notice that Josh Donaldson seemingly came out of nowhere.

He broke into the major leagues as a catcher for Oakland, started playing third base, got traded to the Blue-Jays and now is one of the best players on the planet.

It’s surreal for me because we grew up playing together. We played travel ball and competed against each other every all-star season.

From a young age, it was pretty obvious that he was the REAL DEAL.

The funny thing is, he never really dominated. He was a great player with incredible instinct. but never the player to lead the league in home runs or hit .500.

He was a solid player with a consistent approach. Plus he played the game with reckless abandon.

Something I’d like for you to learn how to do.

In this Baseball Success Principle with Josh Donaldson, he’s going to share with you 5 principles that will change how you play this game.

Enjoy!

How to grow your baseball body big, strong and healthy!

How to grow your baseball body big, strong and healthy!

 

There I was, sitting six rows back in the stands from home plate, watching the Blue-Jays compete against the Angels. A fantastic game. However, the thing I enjoyed the most was watching both Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes display their physical prowess. One was big and strong.

The other was quick and strong.

I believe there is a way that every player can build his body to reach it’s true potential. Most players never do.

I want to share with you a few ways you can do it based on a question that I received from a recent Hitting Machine Academy Member. ( Glad to have you Evan!)

In this video, I’ll discuss a few things that you can do to promote growth, strength and athletic ability that translates to the ball field.

Hope ya enjoy this Art of Baseball QnA!

Become a Switch-Hitter By Growing Your Myelin Sheath.

 

I didn’t learn how to become a true switch-hitter until I was around 22 years old but when I did it was a huge skill-set for me and served as a major advantage.

All breaking ball pitches were breaking towards me and I was able to pick up the ball out of the pitcher’s hand more effectively because the pitcher was always throwing from the opposite side of the mound.

A lot of people share the misconception that if you don’t start switch hitting early it will be too late to start later in your career. That’s absolutely false. I’m a testament to that.

In this Art of Baseball QnA video, I’ll be sharing with you a unique idea that relates closely with the overall developing process of being able to hit from both sides of the plate. The idea or process of a lack of better words is the “Myelin Sheath”.

The Myelin Sheath is the insulator of your neural pathways that are responsible with the process of building and developing new skills and knowledge. This is very important because as the Myelin Sheath grows, we learn things quicker and the entire process compounds on itself.

The most interesting thing about this entire topic is that only up until recently, scientists have discovered that Myelin responds in direct proportion to the amount of electrical activity that it experiences, IE practice.

In this video I’ll discuss how it works and what things you can do specifically to grow your Myelin Sheath to start hitting better from your non dominant side in no time.

Enjoy the video!

How to have little guy POWER like Dustin Pedroia

 

You know where I stand. If you’re an average ballplayer and you don’t have values…you won’t become a great player.

If you’re a a baseball parent…and you don’t know how to communicate the value of work-ethic, humility and courage as legitimate approaches to success in baseball…

…he’ll just have to learn the hard way. I know this may offend some of you. I hope it does. The truth is, there is a particular type of baseball, parent, player and coach that I’d prefer to continue subscribing to my newsletter.

If my stance rubs you the wrong way there are other web sites that will show you how to “squish the bug and keep your elbow up” until you’re blue in the face.

What I’m interested in showing you is how you can reach your highest potential by establishing the right kind of mental attitude  to perform like the players you see on TV.

For example..

Dustin Pedroia is a player who has true confidence. Doesn’t play baseball to seek validation.

He plays. He performs and he competes.

I share a simple little incite about his approach to the plate as well as a mechanical movement that you can learn from.

Enjoy.
