Re: Rocket Science

I really have to agree that it is over analyzed. Sometimes when you think too much you lose the concept of how simple this is. Just hit it if it is in the strike zone. I feel that thinking can be a help if you know the pitcher and can guess his pitches right.

Guys, hitting is not rocket science. If you fill your players mind with technical jargon and what to do and what not to do they are sitting ducks already. Im an 18 year old baseball lover and I have learned that two things do not mix while at bat: thinking and hitting. The only thing a hitter focuses on is dead red - look away adjust in - keep weight back - adjust on uncle charles... thats it. My freshmen and sophamore years I hit .238 on varsity - that was when I was thinking too much - last year I hit .473 - when all I did was react.
