Hey guys! Today's blog post is for the kids. Listen, there are a lot of baseball people out there that give great advice for how to be a better hitter. They teach you how to take a stride. How to transfer your weight. How to drive the ball for power. And how to look pretty while doing it all. But what happens when things aren't going your way? Baseball is a game of failure you know. If you fail 70% of the time in the Major Leagues, chances are you're going to the Hall of Fame. But what do we do when we are failing 80% of the time? Some coaches will tell you to stay positive. Focus on the good things that are happening. It's all rainbows and butterflies and compromise. I think that's a Maroon 5 lyric, but you get my point. Some will say your last resort is a good ole' slump buster. Actually I take that back, I forgot, this is for the kids. Well, I say all that stuff is for the birds. Sometimes you have no choice but to resort to plan B. Here is a friend of mine demonstrating the proper action to take when you've gone 0-4, can't even sniff a fastball, and your bat has a hole in it. Good luck kids!
