Getting AFTER the mental game! Our training and team practice this week was phenomenal!! Wednesday's practice was a lot of fielding posture work and glove isolation - the athletes were fairly frustrated as it's hard to get into good, athletic fielding posture - but they started to get it and had to use failure recovery routines get their minds right. Yesterday, the coaches were highly impressed with the athletes presentations on assigned Heads-Up baseball chapters. It's great to see their creativity and presentation skills. The bar was set pretty high!
Training/Practice: See below for UPDATED details. Athletes, if you can't make a session, please let me know IN ADVANCE. I realize some things come up last minute, but we have trainers set aside for the Sunday sessions. You should take advantage of all of these, otherwise your skills will fall behind as the sessions build on one another. NOTE: Next Sunday, 12/17 will be our last training session of 2017 and it's our Ugly Sweater Training Session. Athletes should wear their ugliest Christmas sweater.

Roster Opening: We still have 1 roster openings for an ELITE PITCHER. Please keep your eyes and ears open as we are still searching for another Elite-level pitcher that fits in our program. If you know of someone worth contacting, I would be happy to reach out.
