2017 ending just like it started: work

Dec. 8, 2017

The quiet struggle of getting better. The long hours when you think nobody is watching. The grind. We have some boys putting in time, and it will show during the 2018 season those that put in the hard work here in 2017 while others were snoozing. It's a whole lot easier to lose 25 pounds in three months than it is get good at a specific baseball skill. Some guys pick up skills quicker than others, and for some guys it seems really easy to get by at this point;  but baseball continues to get harder every year, like no other sport. Coaches can't control the other pitcher's pitch, or how hard they hit a ball to you. There is nobody else to blame at that point. To rest happily in your baseball ability is an acknoledgement that you are done trying to advance. There is no confidence as solid as knowing you have prepared yourself as best you could for the rigors of an impending travel baseball season. Showing up and thinking you can do it simply is not good enough. Actions speak louder than words, and being outworked by others isn't allowed.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
