Work Ethic (1 of 2)

Do you want coaches to fall in love with you?

Be the first one to practice.

Be the last one to leave.

Don’t make excuses.

Expect to work hard.

Don’t look for the easy way out.

Win every sprint.

Listen More, Talk Less.

If a Pro Scout asked you about your work ethic what would you say?

Want to blow his mind?  Tell him this.

Sir,

No one will ever out work me.  For the last 4 years I have put more time in the weight room, on the baseball field and on the pitcher’s mound than any pitcher you will see this year.  Let me tell you about my my 365 day pitching program and if you have any recommendations for things I could do better let me know and I will do them.

Mr Pro Scout here is just a little of what I do.

  1. I have been working on becoming a student of pitching.  I am constantly watching film, studying pitchers and developing a mental game plan for every team I pitch against.  I know that the mental side of pitching is going to be a huge part for my success.
  2. I have a detailed 8 week preseason throwing program to make sure that I am ready to throw off a mound on the first day of practice.  Thanks to a great off season in the weight room, in just 4 months I have added 6 mph to fastball and my new sprinters workout has made me more powerful.  I know I have room to grow and think I can add another 5-7 mph.
  3. I have a new pregame routine that helps me mentally and physically prepare to pitch my best every time I get the ball.  I think I am more suited for starting but I am willing to do what ever it takes to get on the mound.  I just want to pitch, period.

Now what coach or scout wouldn’t love to have YOU on their team?

Your work ethic is defined by how you do what you do.

There are no short cuts.

There are no excuses.

This is what I love about pitching.

A pitcher that works hard, pitches smart and is mentally tough always gives his team a chance to win.

Your hard work will never go unrewarded.
