...and she is starting in the circle tomorrow in one of the most important games of the season. (just got the word this am)
she's a freshman, playing V, batting 2 in the order. she started the season out strong but has been in a slump and hasn't been pitching as much on her own and is now losing speed and control. the bad part is she's becoming unravelled mentally and making everything worse by beating up on herself. thinking too much and the thinking is running out of control, like panic. (not panic attack kind of panic, unable to settle yourself kind of panic)
Fielding is fine but hitting and pitching are at the lowest point all season with no sign of improvement in sight.
Any recommendations on how to help her to help herself?
