Baseball was made for kids, and grown-ups only screw it up. ~Bob Lemon
“Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand.”
For the players:
"Play the game one pitch at a time.Focus on the current pitch. If you are a pitcher, what are you throwing now and where?If you are a fielder, what are you going to do if the ball is hit to you?If you are a base runner what are you going to do on a fly ball, line drive, ground ball, to the right side, to the left side?If you are a batter, what are you trying to accomplish on this pitch?If you are on the bench, how are you helping your team be successful?"Rule #5 on the Nine Principles of Baseball.
