Motivational Monday Nothing Motivates Like This
Nothing motivates kids, at least in the long term, as an adult saying, "I believe in you." I say long term because even though they may be just words in the present, it means everything for kids in their future. Many such motivational quotes exist and good coaches store these "pick me up" quotes until needed for struggling ballplayers. Nowhere do players need these motivational & funny quotes than in the area of hitting a baseball, the most difficult skill to do well in sport.
Many coaches willingly or not, get down on players when they are not producing. Their coaching demeanor changes when struggling players come to bat, especially in game winning situations. It is important that coaches do not let this disappointment happen and on the other side, actually work harder to pump up slumping players.
"You will figure it out"
"You are just one swing away from putting it altogether"
I know you can do this"
" I have seen you do it before"
"That's the (player's name) I remember" when they have a good swing
