FIRST OFF: Learn to LOVE the doubters. Use that as fuel and inspiration to work that much harder. The whole game is a mental game, if you walk into tryouts like you are the shit, everyone’s gunna believe you. But then you have to prove it to them too, bc you gotta work your ass off so you can believe in yourself too. That’s where it all stems from, it doesn’t matter one single effing bit what anyone else believes but it sure matters on what YOU believe. It’s amazing how far confidence & hard work will go. If you put in the effort to be the absolute best you can be, then you have to believe that you are the absolute best and go rock that shit and show them all up. Trust me there is no better feeling to work hours a day for months just to prove to everyone that you ARE amazing. Also, read the book Mind Gym. Seriously, changed my life. Just trust me, if you devote yourself to it you can change your life too.
Definitely interested if you wanna give me a real message 😁
Well I would recommend the Louisville slugger Xenos. I like those bats a lot, they have great pop but they do break frequently. Also liked the demarinis & easton stealth. Any composite bat is pretty good (expensive but good) but I like the Xenos 😁
I have used demarinis & Xenos. Both are great but I think Xenos have better pop. I feel like the ball just jumps off the bat! But they do break a lot so be careful with that.
Actually I didn’t start taking lessons until 8th grade so your totally fine!! Yes you’re starting late but hell, if you put in the hard work and dedication anything is possible. If you truly have a passion for it, it’ll be easy to work hard to become better! But it is hard work. I’m talking practice everyday. But you can do it! You can literally do anything you want with your life so spend it doing something you’re passionate about.
Complete and utter bullshit. But it happens all the damn time. Don’t play for a Dad. Just don’t. Honestly.
Ps - glad to hear how modest you are about being the better innie stuck in the OF (calm down outies, I don’t mean to offend you - us innies just like our dirt.) way to be a team player 👏👏 but work your way back where you belong 😉
Best tip: CONFIDENCE 👌👌
You better walk on to that diamond like they are begging you to play for them, which they will be.
Sure, as long as you check out mine…

THE BEST WAY TO HELP YOU IS TO READ THE BOOK MIND GYM. READ IT. ANNOTATE IT (I did). EAT IT. BREATHE IT. SLEEP IT.
MIND GYM FTW
1. Tell your coach that you want to be number 1 and ask him/her exactly what you need to do to get there. It makes such an impression on coaches to come up to them like that, trust me.
2. Tell your pitching coach. Ask her what drills you should work on to increase speed and yada yada. She will know better than anyone. But if she doesn’t, try another pitching coach for a lil bit. Maybe a session or two. But getting another perspective on something during a slump is always a good thing.
3. Keep on keepin’ on.
