So you made the team…
Don’t get cocky now.
Now the real work begins.
Don’t let the coaches regret their decision.
There is no time to relax. Make sure you stay on your daily throwing program.
Do not waste your practice time.
Your practice habits will decide what your role is going to be.
Here is how I evaluate pitcher’s.
- Talent. There is only so for you will get on your God Given Talent. I promise you the pitchers that learn great practice habits will get the most out of their talent.
- Preparation. Your practice habits, pre-game routine, pitching mound routine and post game routine will all have a major impact on your pitching success. If you don’t have any of the above you are in for a short pitching career.
- Competitiveness. What motivates you? What drives you to want to be the best? Are you mentally tough? Are you starting to get the point? The desire to win isn’t enough, you have to be the smartest player on the field. I truly believe more games are lost between the ears than on the field.
Most baseball games are won on the practice field.
Don’t be satisfied with just making the team.
You won’t get better by accident.
Your work ethic is what truly defines you.
What does your work ethic say about you?
