365 Days to Better Baseball - Keeping Puzzling Practice in Perspective

Motivational Monday Tip of the Day No Guarantees, but Work Pays

I have had great pre-game batting practice only to have poor in game results; and vice versa, when I struggled during batting practice and went home with a few hits that night. Puzzling, to say the least.

I love it when kids have a great practice session, because I can just see the confidence growing in them. On the other hand, it is difficult to see baseball players struggle in practice, because confidence wanes, or at the least, does not grow. In either situation though, I always end practice with "Your work will pay off."

I want them to know that baseballpractice is just that, baseballpractice; it doesn't guarantee success, but that hard work is always commendable. Good coach's explain to kids what is most important one, the work ethic and two, that work almost always leads to improvement which leads to success, sooner or later. Kids, who learn that there are no guarantees in sport and understand that it is the work that counts, survive the longest in baseball.
