Are you in denial?

Anytime you miss your target outside your catcher’s body and you fail to address what caused you to miss your target by so much, you’re in “denial”!

“Denial” is a psychological defense mechanism where you’re faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept.

Instead, despite the frequency, you insist your worst misses are a fluke. You believe your best pitches more than compensate for your worst pitches.  Worst yet, you fail to take responsibility for your misses.  In the end, you accept your worst misses are part of your game.

Your problems go deeper than this ... The more you miss your target outside your catcher's body, the greater you frequency of missing your target over the plate and, the more you miss your target over the plate, the harder it gets to attract next level attention.

You need not deny yourself.

Your hips tilting at the top of your front leg lift cause your worst misses.  On a positive note, when you use your mind's "built-in response mechanism" to handle your hip orientations, you always know how to bring the next pitch after your unacceptable result back end up in your catcher's mitt.

I use your mind's "built-in response mechanism" to tell me whether you use your lower body or throwing arm for balance and which actions must be addressed to keep your worst misses inside your catcher’s body.

To gain command of your  worst pitches, reduce the chance you miss your target over the plate and attract more next level attention, contact me.
