Tips for Parents and Players

Dealing with "The Jitters"

  • Pitchers - Tell them to pretend that the catcher is their parent, to "hear" their parent’s calming, reassuring voice.
  • Turn the negative into positive by saying "I'm excited" instead of "I'm failing".
  • Babe Ruth once said (implied) "Every swing brings me closer to a hit".
  • The REALLY good professional players hit at 30% (0.300).  That means 70% of the time they fail to get a hit and get on base.
  • "You are not born perfect.  You learn to be perfect by practicing." Anonymous
  • "The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time.” Thomas Edison
  • "I never lose - I either win or I learn." Anonymous
  • Practice at home !!  View the training videos on the Coaches Corner.
  • Backyard Tips from Little League - Fun drills to try at home.
