WEEK #8


Hey SJP!              

MUSIC I’M LISTENING TO           

 

So What by Miles Davis.

If you like, check out the album too: Kind of Blue - via Spotify

 

Soul soothing, don’t you think!?

 

BASEBALL FIX

Euphoric!

  1. Barry Bonds homerun - Oh my! - Game 6 of 2002 World Series - Was speechless just like the Halos pitcher.
  2. Japanese Pro Pitcher Orix Buffaloes Pitching Clip in an empty stadium - Turn up your volume before playing it - Oooooh, that sweet sound!

 

 

SWEAT TIME

Let the coin decide mate

via PE Coach (a great resource for at-home workouts with minimal or no equipment!)

 

 

SKILL DEVELOPMENT

There’s no one way to peel a potato…

 

THROWING

Jaeger Long Toss Catchplay/Throwing Routine: via Alan Jaeger

Long Toss Catchplay/Throwing Routine: via ex MLBer Ryan Roberts

 

OUTFIELD

WHAT? Post-catch footwork (after fielding the ball) - Crow-hop vs Pro-step (Coach CJ demo)

WHY? To help limit the other team from scoring more runs than you.😊

Elite level footwork: Check out how others organise their feet, aka post catch footwork: ala MLB

 

HITTING

Building your own hitting routine… via Rockies’ David Dahl

1)         Tee Drill - Warming up - Coiling of back-hip (comfortable)

2)         Tee Drill #2 - Launch position with a constraint (lil uncomfortable) - no false moves after launch and be quick with the barrel

 

MENTAL GAME

 

Adversity Lessons

 

It Is Not What's Gone - But What's Given

 

Jim Abbott -  Misfortune as a gift - born without his right hand to play the game at the highest level possible.

 

“Go out and find what it is that you love. It may not be the most obvious choice or the most logical but never let that stop you." Baseball was hardly the most logical choice for someone with one hand, but I loved it, so that's what I pursued. No matter where the road takes you don't give up until you know in your heart you done everything you possibly could to make your dreams come true. You owe nothing to disability, ignore it. When you fail, get back up and try again. Leave no room for an excuse. Don't listen to what you can't do. 99% of the time I never think of missing a hand. I have never been envious of someone with two hands. Listen to that voice deep within you, it knows, when you've done your best.” - Jim Abbott

 

 

 

Be blessed. Or be a blessing.
