Other than a few issues regarding competitive courage and Playing Big, I am very proud of the 14u Gamers this weekend. Becoming baseball players is a PROCESS. And, we made a step forward this weekend. We had a CF with a huge chunk of flesh out of his leg ready to start the next game but was trapped by urgent care, we had a RHP dominate a very good 15u team, we had three other great pitching performances, we played catcher like studs and had a 3B and SS make every play with guts.
Also we ran 34 poles.
Here is the other side…. Through 4 innings, the cumulative score of our games was 5-2. The final score after 7 innings was 17-2. What happened in innings 5, 6 and 7? We can compete against good 15u teams if we play 7 innings!
Two issues — courage and confidence.
Answer is to Play Big. It is really that easy. Not mechanics, not strategy, not anything but allowing yourself to Play Big.
