Baseball Focus Help - Tip of the Day

Even with young ball players, or especially with young baseball players I should say, it is important to help them learn baseball focus methods. Kids' minds wander easily, and especially during baseball games when there are 15 to 20 seconds between pitches. I try to help players baseball focus skills in two ways - by helping them develop a verbal cue and a visual one. The verbal clue is usually just a word or two that helps players regain focus. Words like "breathe," "now" and "responsibilities," can help players get their minds back to the present. A visual clue usually involves players taking a quick but intense look at a nearby object. Things that give them a smaller focus like reading the writing on the ball, bat or their batting grip helps them get back to the present, too. Each player should find the verbal and visual prompt that helps them the most.
