Jacobs Field: Fultz and Betancourt in the Bullpen

“There are countless ways of attaining greatness, but any road to reaching one’s maximum potential must be built on a bedrock of respect for the individual, a commitment to excellence, and a rejection of mediocrity.”

Buck Rodgers

Volunteer: A person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task.

Greatness: The state, condition, or quality of being great; as, greatness of size, greatness of mind, power, etc.

Everyday I get emails from Pitchers looking for the secret to Playing Professional Baseball.

Most pitchers are surprised with the response I give them.

  1. You can’t buy talent.
  2. You can’t buy motivation.
  3. You can’t buy desire.
  4. You can’t buy greatness.

You have to Volunteer for Greatness.

There are NO pitchers in the Major Leagues pitching on natural talent alone.

And anybody that tells you that is lying.

Greatness can only be accomplished through talent, perseverance and enormous sacrifice.

Here is the secret to becoming a Major League pitcher.

Learning  “what you don’t know you don’t know”. (Go Ahead and Read it twice)

Most pitchers only work on what they know. (That’s why they don’t get better)

Most Coaches only teach pitchers what they think the pitcher don’t know. (Maybe that’s what the pitcher needs, a lot times it’s not)

The truth is that the Millionaire Major League Pitchers know that the secret is to continue to Learn, Grow and Perform. 

And guess what?

Everyone of them Volunteered for Greatness.  

You can’t pay Pitchers to be Great.

They must volunteer for it or they would never put in the work that it takes to perform at that level.

Every Millionaire Major League Pitcher as 5 Essential Traits.

  • A Major League Mindset
  • Repeatable Pitching Mechanics
  • Superior Strength and Conditioning
  • A Specific Pitching Action Plan
  • A Great Action Ethic

They don’t need for someone to tell them they are great…

They Volunteer For It.

Will you freely take on the specific task of being great?
