Your ability to recognize spin, speed, and location of the pitch out of the pitcher's hand is Mission-Critical to peak performance in the batter's box.
You know it. I know it. Your coach knows it. Your opponent knows it.
If you want to learn how to become a complete pain in the #ss for pitchers because of your superior plate discipline, then start training your vision skills.
What great players do...
I want you to consider something about what it means to be a great ballplayer.
Consider that it's a choice.
It's not about being able to hit 500-foot homerus with a flick of the wrist or pump 100 MPH on the bump. It's about mindset. The mindset you choose is a choice. It's about being a student of the game. Learning is a choice. Students of the game are keenly aware of the strengths and skillsets they DO have.
If they find themselves lacking in ability, they do not ask “Why can’t I have it?” Instead, they ask “What do I need to do to cultivate it?” It’s so simple when you think about it.
A winner’s mind expands out and embraces what the world has to offer. A loser retreats within. Being underestimated and facing adversity is part of every ballplayer's story.
Mike Piazza was drafted in the 62nd round of the 1988 MLB draft before becoming a 12-time All-Star, 10-time silver slugger, and Hall of Famer.
Mariano Rivera signed as a non-drafted free agent for $2,500 during a tryout after a scout saw him play shortstop.
Jim Abbot pitched with one hand.
Albert Pujols was drafted in the 13th round.
Roy Holladay got sent back down to A-Ball to work on his mechanics.
Ichiro weighed 127 pounds when he was drafted and was told he was too small to ever play at the highest level.
All were forced to face different disadvantages. All were forced to find a way.
You’re no different.
What's your approach?
Here's my take: "Be. Aggressive. Early. The pitcher will want to get ahead early in the count. Sit on the pitch they have the most control over, and don't miss when you get it."
