I have been wearing a mask with a valve at work. I only have to wear it 15-20 min at a time but it’s exhausting. I don’t know how you could play with one.
makes me realize what our healthcare workers have been going through
Perpetually “not clutch” coaches, this is for you. By the way, it isn’t your team that can’t finish on Sunday. It’s you.
If you are a coach that does things technically correct, year after year, you conduct purposeful practices, your players get tons of meaningful reps, the whole deal and...
This is a fun topic! I am pretty much a believer that a .500 hitter is going to be successful in clutch situations half the time....
Yet I am also a believer that successful people who “get in the zone” and “see the ball well” are actually practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness is the idea that...
When I read this, I also think this: sometimes the time might be right for unexpected chaos. Corners back, best hitter up, maybe you bunt for a hit and see what screwed up thing might happen next. Keep in mind I’m saying that as the coach of teams that almost never bunt.
If I have all good...
Paralysis by analysis. Coaches need to stay out of hitters heads.
Clutch isn’t a thing. Every hitter hits sometimes. Slumps end.
As the coach on offense, I’m preparing every player every game for this and every other situation. The ”strategy” is always the same. Get a good pitch to hit...
@Cougars are you going by the new phase 3 guidelines released yesterday? I skimmed them and thought June might be a go. Wasn’t sure.
If you can’t even marginally deal with the public without causing problems, if your people skills are that weak, you shouldn’t be dealing with the public. That isn’t the right job for you.
This topic really irritates me because most of the problem of not having people skills in my opinion is...
I agree with everything in this post. I’ve been the employee taking b.s., I’ve been the supervisor of employees that were being wronged and I’ve been the supervisor of employees that I had to say “hey man, maybe next time you could try _____________“ while thinking to myself “because what you...
Riseball- I was typing while you were.
I would be PROUD to say hitters like that hit slams off me. My gosh those three are Dangerous with a capital “D”. I loved watching Cheek hit. (She is a really nice person too.)
Hitters gotta hit.
True big zone hitting Is an advanced skill but it should be worked on. It is especially important to thrive as a big fish in a small pond.
HS and above should work on hitting balls 1-2 balls off the plate.
10-12u should be working on hitting balls a 1/2 to a full ball...
The little old gate ladies take a lot of grief from WHO exactly? That makes zero sense.
How about this, ladies? How about everyone is sick of getting complaints about you so your phoney baloney job is now gone. You have been replaced by a nominal fee. Buh Bye.
I like their concessions there, especially the burger hut dealio. I made up my mind a long time ago my family of four would never spend a cent on concessions or water there, ever.
I am at least moderately easy going but I had my fill of that bunch.
