Baseball may be the biggest sport where, if you’re not in the game mentally, you might as well sit on the sidelines. Since over the years stats have developed and players can be judged on paper, many ignore it while others want to check and see if they are producing good numbers beyond average and home runs.

Joey Votto is a player who stands out and cares about his OBP and over the years it has certainly increased. In 131 games in 2009 (his rookie season), he had an OBP of .414. By 2012, he was up to .474 in 111 games. Recently, Votto’s teammate Brandon Phillips spoke with USA Today and said of the stat:

“I don’t do that percentage based on MLB Network (stuff),” Phillips told USA TODAY Sports. “I think that’s screwing up baseball. I think people now are just worried about getting paid and worrying about on-base percentage instead of just winning the game.”

Without digging too deep, you can see that Phillips just doesn’t care about any more stats than we usually see on most TV games. While he’s entitled to his opinion, most would agree with a teammate who cares about this number, it didn’t make Joey Votto look good as his point of view on OBP is on the other side. .

Now, whether or not you care about OBP is an important number, it’s one of the easiest things to compare to Zen Buddhism. In our daily lives, we are in a hurry to get things done, we have time to relax, and then we feel like we will have another long day before we finally get the job done. I know every morning when I have to get ready and check the schedule, I have to take a breath and not get the common saying: “This is going to be a long day.”

In pressure at-bats for players, especially when you’re down one, in the ninth inning, I couldn’t imagine having the patience as the pitcher or the batter thinking, you need a strikeout or a home run to finish. the game. While I’m not always the biggest fan of goofy quotes when it comes to religion or philosophy, one of my favorites from the Buddha is this:

“You cannot walk the path until you have become the path itself.”

While it might be silly to think that this quote has anything to do with baseball. The mindset during each at-bat can be ahead of schedule and constantly think about batting anyway to get on base. It certainly can look good on Brandon Phillips when he throws the ball for a single, but when you walk, it’s the same. So while I think Joey Votto would love to hit a home run every at-bat like any player in the game, I think he’s more realistic to the fact that in order to score runs, you have to get on base, even if you’re not the hero that get the RBI.

The game is certainly more complicated if we think that Votto’s best OBP year was his best year. But it’s all a balancing act, as one can easily point out that Votto’s OBP was excellent, but his 14 HR and 59 RBI in 2012 just don’t get the job done at the cleanup position. So everything is a balancing act and it can’t be perfect. So understanding the fact that a day of anger will soon be followed by a day of happiness is difficult, we would all like it to be balanced, but it will not be perfect.

Having that understanding both in the game of baseball and in life is something we all strive for. So, in the year 2015, let’s see what the champion moods and stats are and see if it somehow balances out. The quiet Madison Bumgarner pulled out a historic game to end the 2014 season. And she’d bet her patience in the ninth inning after Alex Gordon reached third base was the reason they won it all.

That sound you hear is nothing more than NBA teams hitting the hardwood as training camps prepare to open. It’s been a wild summer at The Association, as most of it has been tied to LeBron James and his new gang in South Beach with a continued shift of power to the Eastern Conference. But King James may find it gets even more crowded in the East if Carmelo Anthony has his way.

In late August, Melo began to spread rumors that he wanted out of Denver. With one year remaining on his contract, Anthony was interested in a three-year, $65 million extension. He just wasn’t interested in him coming over from the Nuggets. The team has begun to explore a number of trade options, hoping to gain some young players in return. That desire has affected the New York Knicks’ chances of landing Melo, but it has kept the other three rumored suitors (Houston, Chicago and New Jersey) heavily in the mix.

For now, any news that Anthony has changed addresses has been kept under wraps. But that hasn’t stopped people from asking. The Denver Post asked La La Vasquez, Anthony’s new wife, about her husband’s plans while he promoted his new reality show.

“I find myself trying to stay away from speculation,” she told The Post. “She’s been with those guys for seven years and she’s played her heart out.”

Melo himself has been fairly low-key on the subject, telling his Twitter followers: “When I know something, you guys will know something. #blankdot.” At the moment he’s still a Denver Nugget, but it only seems to be a question of when he gets traded, not if. With two of the three contenders in the East, a trade to the Right Coast could make the battle for the top half of the conference very interesting.

Land Anthony in Chicago and the Bulls will quickly become the NBA’s picks to click, replacing the Cavaliers as the Central Division’s rulers. Combine that with a healthy Devin Harris and an emerging Brook Lopez in New Jersey and they could be the second-best team in the Atlantic Division behind the Celtics.

Meanwhile, training camp opens next week and it seems almost certain that Melo will be on Denver’s roster. Keep your eyes open. This story will continue to unfold and will have a huge impact on the season.

What an absolutely crazy first few weeks it has been in the NFL. Seventeen teams, 17!!!, are still over .500. And it’s crazy how one week a team (say, the Giants) can look like total shit and then the next week go out and smoke a top-five team like the Falcons. Powerhouses like the Bengals losing to junk teams like the Buccaneers and surprises like the Saints are making this season something to watch. It is almost impossible to know who will be left standing at the end of the year.

Especially after the Bears-Cardinals game on Monday night. Chicago has seemed by far the best team in the NFL. The offense was racking up points, the defense was shutting down teams and seemed to be playing with a lot of consistency. Then Arizona, the scum of a team, catches them at home and blows their doors off. But, in the blink of an eye, two lucky defensive plays, a special teams touchdown and a missed Neil Rackers FG later, the Bears remain undefeated.

What Monday night’s game showed me is that the Bears are not invincible. In fact, they may not be as good as we all thought. They have played most of their games at home and have yet to face a tough challenge on the road. Rex Grossman and Bernard Berrian have yet to show what they can do against a good defense on the road. I’m not sold. They stay at number 1 though.

This week’s big movers, the Carolina Panthers, move up nine spots to No. 5, while the Falcons drop 11 spots to No. 16. Meanwhile, the Birds’ second tough loss of the season knocks them out of the top 5. , but not top 10. Not yet, anyway.

Now… to the classification…

(1) Chicago Bears (5-0) – They escaped the desert by the skin of their teeth, in one of the strangest games I’ve ever seen. For your quarterback to turn the ball over six times and come back from 20 points down in the second half without an offensive touchdown is just unbelievable.

(2) Indianapolis Colts (5-0) – Their trade for DT Booger McFarland from the Bucs should help that running defense, which has been the Colts’ Achilles’ heel so far in 2006. However, they paid a high price. price by giving up a second-round pick. We’ll see if choosing a Booger works for Indy.

4) San Diego Chargers (4-1) – The Colts are higher because they’re undefeated, but for my money, the Chargers are the best team in the AFC, if not the NFL. Of course, Schottenheimer will find a way to sabotage his Super Bowl chances, but we’re still at least a couple of months away from that. Philip Rivers is real.

(9) Seattle Seahawks (4-1) – It hasn’t been pretty for the Hawks this season, with Shaun Alexander’s foot injury and the loss of Steve Hutchinson drastically affecting the running game. However, last Sunday’s monstrous comeback in St. Louis, with the division lead on the line, was monstrous. Seattle needed that game.

(14) Carolina Panthers (4-2) – Since Steve Smith returned to the lineup, the Panthers are 4-0. It’s hard to believe a wide receiver could make such a difference, but facts are facts. That was also an impressive performance from Jake Delhomme in Baltimore on Sunday.

(7) New England Patriots (4-1) – The Pats lose a bye week spot amid rumors of a possible trade for disgruntled WR Randy Moss from the Raiders. It didn’t happen. Can you imagine Moss and Belichek coexisting? Talk about oil and vinegar. Of course, Tom Brady still has no one to pitch to.

(10) Denver Broncos (4-1) – I hate their offense and I think Jake Plummer is a terrible quarterback. But his defense has convinced me to finally turn them up a notch. Just one touchdown in the first five games of the season? It has never been done before.

(8) Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) – These guys may be rated too high right now, I realize that. They’re a very lopsided team, you just don’t know what you’re going to get from these guys. But I feel like this team is ready to really start clicking on offense. Once that happens, be careful.

(12) New Orleans Saints (5-1) – I don’t think they’re any more talented than the Eagles, but they definitely showed they’re real on Sunday. After the Birds completely stole New Orleans’ momentum early in the quarter, the Saints took it back and dominated the entire fourth quarter. An impressive victory for a quality team.

(3) Philadelphia Eagles (4-2) – Yeah, they should be 6-0 but they’re not. Frankly, the defense hasn’t been good enough for this team to be undefeated. And we can talk about all the mental breakdowns and talent level all we want. But until this team is able to tacitly commit to the running game and stop the big play at D, they will continue to beat themselves.

(6) Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) – What’s going on in Cincinnati? Maybe all the police activity has caused these guys to lose focus, but there is no way, NO WAY, a Super Bowl contender should lose to a winless team, I don’t care where they are. These guys have had their ups and downs all year and they better get it fixed soon.

(11) St. Louis Rams (4-2) – Despite losing a big division game at home to the Seahawks, they were pretty impressive on Sunday. It was quite a fight between Hasslebeck and Bulger. Unfortunately, the Hawks got the ball last and scored on a monster FG as time expired. But the Rams look real, too, as long as Bulger keeps playing football without making mistakes.

(16) Dallas Cowboys (3-2) – One question … do you think Bill Parcells is happy or upset that Terrell Owens caught three touchdown passes on Sunday? It’s an absolute zoo in Dallas, with a fight between Owens and his receiving coach, rumors of fines or suspensions that never happened, and reports of serious friction between Owens, Jones and Parcells. Oh!

(17) New York Giants (3-2) – Despite an impressive win over the Falcons on Sunday, I can’t rate these guys any higher, not until I see them more regularly. This team, along with the Redskins, are two of the most impressive teams in the NFL. Some weeks look like Super Bowl contenders, other weeks look like crap. I have no idea what the Giants are, so I’ll just leave you here in the middle of the group until I figure it out.

(13) Baltimore Ravens (4-2) – Again, another team with a very good defense but serious problems on offense. The solution? Fire Jim Fassel. I have no idea if this is going to help anything, and the bye week should give Steve McNair time to get ready after his concussion on Sunday. But the offense was failing even with McNair there, and Brian Billick thinks he’s the solution. We’ll see.

(5) Atlanta Falcons (3-2) – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You stop Mike Vick from running and shut down Warrick Dunn, you beat the Falcons. It is not a difficult formula. Kudos to the Giants for once again showing us how it’s done.

(15) Minnesota Vikings (3-2) – It’s becoming increasingly clear that no one is going to catch the Bears up north, so the Vikes need to turn their attention to the wild card. The bad news is that there are many times over talented people who seem to have the inside track.

(20) Pittsburgh Steelers (2-3) – Finally, the Steelers looked like the Steelers of old. The extra bye week seemed to do Ben Roethlisburger a lot of good, Willie Parker showed that flash that makes him special, and Hines Ward found the end zone. They still have a long way to go, but the Stillers aren’t dead yet.

(22) New York Jets (3-3) – Looks like an 8-8 team to me. They have no running game at all, you just don’t know what you’re going to get from Chad Pennington from week to week, but they have a bad enough schedule to allow them to beat some of the dumbest teams in the NFL.

(18) Kansas City Chiefs (2-3) – Did I mention Herman Edwards can’t coach? Of course, they played on the world courses after a week off on their home course. That’s like lambs to the slaughter. Goal 45-7? Good teams don’t lose like that.

(19) Washington Redskins (2-4) – How the hell, with all that talent and all that money and all those high-profile coaches, do you lose a home game to a rookie quarterback and the Tennessee Titans? How could such a thing happen? The Skins are proving once again that money is not always the answer.

(21) Buffalo Bills (2-4) – While Willis McGahee may be having a good year in terms of yards, he still can’t seem to find the end zone. The Bills’ red-zone offense is almost non-existent, and each week they do enough to lose.

(23) San Francisco 49ers (2-4) – Alex Smith continues to play well, but San Francisco’s defense is a mess. He has given up 48, 41, 38 and 34 points in his four losses. However, they have beaten the Rams. This is a crazy league, folks.

(30) Tennessee Titans (1-5) – Despite my thrashing of the Redskins just now, it was a pretty impressive win for a team that most had counted down and out. And while they certainly won’t make the playoffs this year, they have a young quarterback they can get excited about … Vince Young. He showed the poise of a much older player and calmly led the Titans to a big road win on Sunday.

(24) Cleveland Browns (1-4) – Unfortunately, the Browns don’t have any great young players to give them hope. Unless you’re counting Kellen Winslow, Jr., who has yet to prove he’s worth the investment. It’s a long climb for the Brownies.

(25) Miami Dolphins (1-5) – OK, so we’re officially declaring this season for Miami a wash, right? I mean, Daunte obviously came back too soon from injury, which is why the entire team has flushed his season down the toilet, correct? Come on guys, show some heart! This season has had as much to do with putrid offensive line play and lousy defense as it has with Culpepper. Heartless in Miami.

(27) Green Bay Packers (1-4) – During the bye week, Brett Favre threw three interceptions during a family picnic. His QB rating actually went up.

(29) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-4) – An impressive first win of the season for Jon Gruden and the Bucs, beating the Bengals at home. You’ve got to like how Steve Gradkowski has kept them going in the two games they’ve played since Sims went down with a ruptured spleen. And Cadillac Williams is finally starting to show some life, too.

(31) Detroit Lions (1-5) – Congratulations to the Detroit Lions for their first win of the season over the Bills. And kudos to Roy Williams who, after I traded him in week 3 of my fantasy football league season, finally showed some heart and had a great week. Folks, if you have Roy Williams on your fantasy squad, get rid of him now. Because he won’t do that again until Week 12.

(28) Houston Texans (1-4) – How many teams were on bye this week? Caramba! I hate this new goodbye system. It seems like a third of the league didn’t play in Week 6.

(26) Arizona Cardinals (1-5) – Wow. What to say about the loss of Monday night. Just an amazing, mind-blowing choke job. It wasn’t just the fact that they blew a 20-point lead, it’s the fact that they did so without allowing an offensive touchdown. Think how difficult that is. It’s almost impossible! But not for the Cardinals. The only bright spot … Matt Leinart is going to be a very good quarterback in this league for a long, long, long time.

(32) Oakland Raiders (0-5) – The good ship lollipop was in high spirits during the bye week. Randy Moss was almost traded to the Patriots and Jerry Porter was suspended. How did they not trade these guys for draft picks, especially considering how many teams could use a good wide receiver? I don’t understand

You’ve all heard the saying “The squeaky wheel takes the oil”. In reference to shooting free throws in basketball, the best coach is the ‘miss shot’. When we feel bad or get sick, the first and immediate response is “what is the origin of the pain”. There is an immediate thought process that focuses on the area closest to the pain and the accompanying action is to take a pain reliever, rest or, depending on the severity, seek medical attention. The worse you feel, the more motivated you are to ‘feel good’ or attend to your daily duties without any conscious thought about physical discomfort.
This is the exact same process we should use to deal with a missed free kick. (I use a hyphen because it joins the word ‘free kick’). The main reason this topic needs some expansion is that, through my own scientific observations, I have estimated that about 75-80% of shots are not “dead center” in the center of the rim. This is a huge margin of error and the main problem in the world of basketball is that you never hear any instruction or training on how to shoot the ball ‘straight’. The next time you watch a ball game on TV, make a note of how many shots taken are the correct distance but are ‘off line’ or lopsided. It is a surprising phenomenon and can be corrected with some scientific understanding and the application of relevant principles.

A major part of the problem with shooting a crooked shot starts with the grip, or the way the hand is lined up on the ball. If the hand is not placed on the ball in a scientifically correct way, it will have further repercussions on the “follow-through”, which is the most important part of any shot. The ‘follow up’ is the computer processor that schedules the shot for success.

Just watch when you use the keyboard and type words on a page, how easy it is to hit a rong key or even miss something (oops, I left out the ‘w’, looks weird doesn’t it?) and if it doesn’t mark what you typed you will have grammatical errors. There is good and there is evil. If you’re writing a resume or official document, you definitely don’t want to have any mistakes. We are judged by our application. There is no difference when shooting a basketball. A small miscalculation or an inch of lateral movement anywhere in the fingers, arm, or elbow will cause a shot to miss. Missed baskets lose games, cause loss of confidence, and a plethora of other concerns.

Since shooters are made, not born, the pressure is on players and coaches to get this process right. Perfection at the free throw line is attainable and maintainable, but it requires constant and total mental control of the physical capacity of the body. A great shot isn’t just pushing the ball in the direction of the rim. The other day I went to see a local high school girls basketball game. Naturally I watched the shooting mechanics of the participants, as I always do. I can no longer be critical because the great shooting mechanics are simply absent at the large-scale high school level. The average free throw shooting percentage in high school is about 65% from the free throw line. I’d say that’s a failing grade and nothing to brag about and I bet these guys shoot with their eyes OPEN.

Let’s put this process in some perspective as it is very important. The free throw is the fundamental shot in basketball. All other shots have a connection to the free throw and a similarity in the application of the shot. (More on this in another article)

First of all, if you’ve ever shot a rifle, shotgun, or BB gun, you’ll have noticed that you naturally brought the butt of the gun up to your shoulder and aimed the barrel at the line of sight in line with your dominant eye and you would have your trigger finger on the trigger ready to fire when you are ‘ready’. Note also that he doesn’t pull the trigger until he has the target, the peep sight at the end of the barrel, and his eye in the ‘line of fire’. I also call this the correct “shooting pocket” when preparing to shoot.

Compare this process to the free throw attempt. You pick up the ball (usually with your dribbling hand to associate with your lead hand), then place the ball on its ‘shot pocket’ of the comfort zone, which may or may not be scientifically correct. Let’s compare.
When you pick up a rifle and are ready to shoot, don’t hold the barrel of the gun near your hips or above your head or in front of your stomach. Squeeze the stock with your shoulder and align all other parameters (sight, barrel, eye and target) before firing.

Many players today have an incorrect grip on the ball (index finger in the center of the ball with fingers spread as wide as possible so the pads only touch the ball and not the palm) starting in a ‘shot pocket’ wrong and consequently have faulty tracking. through. The ideal “shooting pocket” is to have the ball about 2-3 inches above the center of your forehead where your eyes can see the center of the rim, the inside of your shooting wrist, which is the peephole aligned with the center The rim and the firing arm when extended over the shot form the barrel of the rifle. This method allows complete vision and control. But this is not for everyone because it takes strength and practice to shoot from this position. Players who are weak will have ‘shot pockets’ which generally start from the face and work their way down, due to lack of strength.

Also, the ideal follow-through should be one arm extended and locked, fingers spread apart and parallel to the floor with only two joints bent: the wrist and the elbow. Take special care that there is no lateral movement during or after the ball is released and especially in the fingers. At the end of the shot, the index finger should line up with the center of the rim, down the inside of the shooting arm, and the right eye on a right-handed shooter should line up.

Now you have some tips to concentrate while you practice shooting. Of course, there is much more involved in terms of finger pressure and finger responsibility on the ball and which finger has which role in the shooting process. But at least this gives a bit of “perception” (pun intended) in the line of fire.

Also understand that when I refer to free throws I mean the same process happens with every shot, especially 3-point shots. The downside of shooting further is that a small error in the tracking mechanics increases the chance of missing the basket.

What’s better to relax in your favorite stadium during baseball season? How about enjoying some spring training games? Many people think of Florida when they think of baseball teams that work out in the spring to train for the rigors of summer ball. However, Arizona’s spring training baseball, known as the “Cactus League,” offers some of the best teams in America, and you can see them up close in smaller, more intimate stadiums.

Does your favorite team play in the Cactus League? Well, here is a list of the teams that play spring training baseball in Arizona:

or Arizona Diamondbacks
chicago cubs
o Chicago White Sox
o Colorado Rockies
Kansas City Royals
or Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
or Los Angeles Dodgers
o Milwaukee Brewers
o Oakland Athletics
o San Diego Padres
o San Francisco Giants
Seattle Mariners
Texas Rangers

Teams play throughout the month of March, in seven different cities in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Arizona’s spring training baseball usually takes place every day, so if you’re planning a trip, you’re almost guaranteed to attend a game or two, even if it’s not between your favorite teams. Sometimes they play a couple of dates in late February and early April as well.

A history of the minor leagues

The Cactus League was first formed in 1946, when the Cleveland Indians went to Tucson and the New York Giants to Phoenix to work out for a month before the baseball season began. This first spring training baseball, Arizona was diverted from Florida because the Indians signed Larry Doby, the first black player in the American League and Cleveland owner Bill Veeck thought Arizona would be more open to a black team. mixed. The Chicago Cubs arrived in 1951, and since then the spring training roster has grown to 13 teams that play every day for the entire month of March.

Smaller stadiums with smaller prices

The weather in Phoenix and Tucson in March is warm and perfect for early spring baseball, and teams play close enough to one another that it’s easy to get from one stadium to another. Best of all, these are small, intimate ballparks; where fans can get much closer to all the baseball action, and that’s why so many people head to spring training baseball in Arizona. Tickets are also cheaper, and you can still see the big players hit one outside the stadium; you’re just more apt to catch that home run in one of these smaller ballparks.

Arizona spring training baseball is all about seeing up-and-coming rookies make their mark, too. If you attend the Cactus League games, you might see the next A-Rod or Ken Griffey, Jr. right there, warming up in the circle on deck right in front of his seats.

The stadiums are located in the Tempe, Mesa, Peoria, Scottsdale, Glendale and Surprise areas of Phoenix, and in Tucson, less than 2 hours south of Phoenix. Tickets are available through local Arizona spring training ballparks and through individual team websites. Enjoy the Cactus League in Arizona and enjoy some of the best baseball you’ve ever seen in March!

Nowadays there is a lot of talk about the benefit of volleyball, as a team sport, for individuals. This benefit is said to be even greater than that of other more popular sports. Perhaps the most popular of the team sports is soccer, but there are also others, such as volleyball, that have the same important effects on the participants.

Volleyball, unfortunately, is a neglected sport. It has not been promoted as it should, nor is it one of the most popular among young people. However, it has positive consequences on the people who like to participate.

First of all, it helps people stay healthy and fit, just like other sports. At the same time, it is a way for young people to release tension without resorting to dangerous outlets such as violence and crime.

Another benefit of volleyball is its contribution to the development of solidarity and cooperation among team members. The common effort brings the individuals involved in a volleyball game together, while this game gives them the opportunity to cooperate to obtain the best possible result.

From all the benefits described here, anyone can understand that this sport does not fall short compared to other sports. But despite its advantages few people participate in it. The main reason for this is that volleyball is not promoted by the media, at the same time that families and schools do not encourage young people to participate, because they think that soccer, athletics and basketball are the best forms of exercise.

However, in recent years there is a trend to teach volleyball more often in gym classes. It is important that this trend continues. The teaching of volleyball in schools should become more systematic, and at the same time, young people should be encouraged to participate in volleyball games, especially if this is in accordance with their personal inclinations.

At the same time, the media should promote the sport through the broadcast of volleyball matches or television programs that provide information about the sport. In this way people will discover volleyball and the new dimensions that the sport offers.

In conclusion, volleyball, like any sport, has positive results for people, so it is necessary for more people to realize the benefits of these results and make the effort to learn and enjoy the game.

There aren’t many better feelings than getting hits for baseball players. Actually, there is? Getting hit in the clutch is an even better feeling. Of all the great memories I have of playing baseball, the ones that are most memorable are the clutch hits I had. Many people think of clutch hits as the ones that drive in runs or win games, but sometimes just as important are the hits players get to start a play, break up a no-hitter, or put a good pitcher out of the game. One of my fondest memories of a decisive at-bat involved not a hit but a sacrifice fly I hit in the 17th inning that drove in the game-winning run against the New York Yankees. This was as memorable as a hit because, being an underpowered player, hitting a ball deep enough into the outfield was no easy task for me.

Developing young players to be good key hitters is one of my goals as hitting coach. Of course, the best clutch hitters are generally the hitters who are fundamentally the most solid with their hitting mechanics. Having good fundamentals always gives players the best chance of success. However, just having good fundamentals does not guarantee a great clutch hitter and all hitters can be taught to be better in the clutch. I’ve known plenty of players who have the ability to go 1-for-4 in games for a .250 batting average, but that hit always seemed like a big hit for the team. Some players just have a sense of the moment and an inner confidence that they are the right person for the situation. Good clutch hitters can focus on the moment. They do this by focusing on the things they can control, which is simply swinging well on a pitch. These clutch batters don’t over-rotate, strain too hard, or “squeeze” too hard to work.

With this in mind, the following are coaching tips to help players become good clutch hitters:

1. Explain to the players what was mentioned above, that “clutch hit” involves more than just an RBI hit or a game-winning hit. For example, simply getting on base with a walk or single can be very “clutching.”

2. Practice players in familiar difficult situations as much as possible. “Two out, bases loaded, game in play and here’s the pitch” is a good batting practice idea. When players find themselves in difficult situations often enough, they will develop a sense of “having been there before”, which can increase their confidence and give them calming feelings.

3. Explain to the players that no one will remember for long if they make an out, but everyone will remember for a long time if they make a big hit. This way, players will start to feel like they don’t have much to lose, which should ease the pressure. This also serves to make players wait for the opportunity.

4. Good coaches don’t overtrain by making more of a situation than it is. This can be done by staying calm and simply telling hitters to “throw a good pitch to hit.” Coaches must be careful not to change their behavior or overload players with distracting instructional advice, especially during intense game situations.

5. Ask the players in practice who wants to be ready to bat with the game on the line. Most, if not all, will say they want to be, even if they aren’t sure. This “mental preparation” will help the players to prepare for the situation before they find themselves in the real situation.

6. Telling different players from time to time that you want them to be the player ready to hit with the game on the line shows your confidence in the player, which should help player confidence.

7. Coaches must not show disappointment in front of the players when they do not reach the decisive moment, so that the players are not ashamed of wanting to be up in the same key situation the next time. The parents of the players must also be sure and follow this point, because the children definitely do not want to disappoint their parents.

Ultimately, one thing I did as a player was start preparing for late game situations. When a game was close to scoring, I would start around the sixth or seventh inning to visualize being up in the last inning with the game on the line. This was great preparation for the eventual situation where I got to hit with the game balanced.

Just as all the organs and limbs make up your body, and your body, your life, you, is a complete unit built by parts, Destiny is a complete unit built by the parts that are the Seven Powers that also control our life. Unhealthy lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, anger, envy, pride.

Each event in your life can be treated in different ways, ways that you can choose; run away or stay, cower or stand firm, steal or be honest, defend or attack, lie or tell the truth, every moment of your life when you have to make a decision, destiny is right there, to determine the course it will take your life from that moment on based on your decision and action.

Destiny is not fixed, it is as fluid as the weather, it changes at any time, and you are the master of your destiny, you just don’t know it.

In fact, you don’t want to know that you are the master, because the responsibility is too great, the challenge too difficult.

With every choice you have to make, even if you think you have no choice, if you reflect on your past, you will see that you had a choice, you probably just didn’t like the choice that you knew was the right one.

Gravity is a power of this planet and the universe. Keeps everything on the ground. It also keeps the moon in orbit around the earth and the planets in orbit around the sun. It is always drawing everything to the lowest point.

In the same way, the powers draw your life and thoughts to their lowest point. Because the powers are our weaknesses, which are imposed on us to keep us in the often messy human condition, the weaknesses, the self-centeredness and the evil nature that is part of being human.

The energy that we are, which some people call the soul, but I call ‘my conscience’, or ‘better judgement’ or commonly referred to as ‘common sense’, a rare commodity in the human race, is the very nature of what we are .

The battle is between the powers that are our negative qualities, that keep us at our lowest level, which is the human ego, and our essential energy, which is light. Not light only in the sense of brightness, but weight, light and weightless, not subject to gravity.

When an event occurs and you make your decision, Destiny reassesses if you made an unpredictable decision and redetermines your future.

If you made a poor financial decision, greed and anger will grow with regret. If you made a good choice and won a lot of money, Pride takes over, which can lead to more Envy from others. As your taste for success drives you to recognition, you may feel jealous and envious of other people who gain recognition as your desire for more grows, having tasted it.

With every decision you make, good or bad, one or more of the powers will increase or decrease in you, and with that, Destiny will turn your life in another direction.

By being attentive to the Seven Powers that control us, as the events of the day unfold, being aware of the emotions and feelings that arise in your mind and choosing to act in a positive, more humble or honest, caring way, you can change your destination in a different direction.

You have the power to control your destiny in this way. The immediate result may not be what you want, it may not be good in the sense of your financial or love life, but Destiny is a plan for the rest of your life, until you change it again, so the immediate events are practically irrelevant. .

This is what you must keep in mind with every word and action, especially with the big things going wrong, seeing what direction they are taking you in, the seven powers or the light and overcoming their negative manipulations.

Everyone knows that you don’t take any material possessions when you die, but you take your character. At your funeral, the number of people who will mourn your death will be proportional to your character, not your wealth if that was acquired by an asshole character. Instead of burying him with his gold and property, they will simply write him a check to take to his grave.

Always remember that in the face of disaster, Destiny will make a new plan for your life based on your reaction. Bitter regrets and a desire for revenge or becoming depressed and losing hope will make a plan, but accepting your life situation as it is at that moment, as if you were just born on that day without a past, facing it with courage and strength, will force Destiny to give you new ideas and creativity, new opportunities to rebuild, start over and become a better person.

You own your Fate whether you like it or not, believe it or not. You can test the truth of this statement by simply remembering the big past events in his life, how he reacted and how it affected him in the days or months that followed, and how that reaction determined his next actions. Did you push people away with negativity and anger, or did you inspire people with your courage and ability to dust yourself off and start over?

Just think about your past, and learn about people who have failed or succeeded, and learn from their reactions, was it strength of character or did you build a huge ego?

Now you can decide, you are going to control your destiny from today and defy gravity, let your essence rise, or let gravity pull you down emotionally, with your life like a leaf blowing in the wind, letting the wind of destiny take you where he and the seven powers want you to go.

As a spiritual person with a strong bond with the Universal Spirit, he leads and guides me throughout my life. What quickly destroys that bond is entertainment, particularly fiction. Whether people realize it or not, the stories that come out of people’s heads are lies and don’t work in the presence of God. Fictional stories are the basis of religions and do not serve the Spirit.

The world is full of contrasts and evil while it is locked in black darkness. However, the entertainment industry is responsible for most of it due to movies; concepts; games; social networks; toys; and other stuff, which is downright junk to look at or use and junk food for the brain.

One cannot live on junk food for long before the body reacts to it. The loss of vitamins, enzymes, flavonoids, and essential nutrients soon turns it upside down. The brain is no different. Feeding it the garbage of man’s inventions, especially when it comes to entertainment, does the same thing to the body.

The darkness of not feeding him properly plays into every cell within him. Toxins build up, free radicals attach to cells to turn them into things like cancer or other diseases, and depression sets in. That’s when people look to medications to help them get back on their feet. Some drugs work, but hard drugs hook people into addictions.

Gambling is another form of entertainment that destroys. Few would be unaware how people steal to support their habit, and many lost their homes and families because of it.

While the world is concerned about the pollution of the environment and the accumulation of toxins in the air, they pay little attention to the things they use for entertainment. They are just as deadly and are working to destroy the earth through lack of care and knowledge that people overlook in order to get to the next place of entertainment.

Without their spiritual bond, they are lost in a frenzy of worry and struggle that has no solution. The entire world is rapidly approaching the point of no return. Many would rather laugh, however, than do anything about it. As long as they can forget their problems for a while, they can be happy again.
