Do you have a vision?
We all know the number one rule in sports is keep your eye on the ball, but in baseball is it really just keeping your eye on it? The greatest hitters ever also had some of the best vision ever. You can have all the mechanics in the world, but if you cannot see the ball well, you’ll never make contact. Vision doesn’t just mean seeing the ball, but seeing and understanding the situation you are in. How many runners are on? How many outs are there? Being able to see what is happening going forward, is a characteristic of a intelligent baseball or softball player. It’s also about having a vision for your future and not just what you see on the diamond. You have to be able to look forward to goals, while keeping your eye on the ball.
