Pointer #5: Watch the ones who make it look easy

Pitching Easy Pointer #5 - Jan. 16, 2024

Watch other pitchers, especially the ones who make it look easy.

"Max effort" pitchers are some of the strongest, hardest training, emotional people you will ever meet. If you possess similar intensity, use them as a motivator.


Pitchers who keep things at a 95% effort level, that is, they don't get out of control physically or mentally, are the pitchers who tend to stand the test of time. In the end, coaches desire consistent peak performance from their pitchers. Riding the physical and emotional roller coaster is not the best way to achieve your long-term goals.

This game is hard enough to play when there is no stress. Don't let the heavy load from loud coaches, peer pressure, or pushy parents make cause you to go outside of your best effort. 95% will give you 100% consistency and satisfaction.
