    From Baseball Skills & Drills

    It is one thing to know the mechanics of hitting; it is another thing to develop this desired skill in the swing. The following few pictures and thoughts may help hitters process the skill information into mental pictures that they can simulate in their swings.

    Relax the Body, Focus the Mind. A hitter who grips the bat too tightly and has a rigid body that is tied in knots is often asked to relax. To react properly to a pitched ball, the hitter’s body must be relaxed, but his focus, concentration, and visualization must be sharp. He must understand this point, because when a hitter tries to relax his body, he often relaxes his concentration as well, creating a sloppy swing.


    5 basic elements of a solid hitting philosophy.
    From Baseball Skills & Drills
    by American Baseball Coaches Association

    An old farmer once said to a lost motorist who happened upon his farmhouse, "If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there." Players too often learn hitting techniques without understanding the results they wish to accomplish. Does the hitter want to try to hit home runs all the time? Does he want to take a lot of pitches? Does he just want to hit the ball to the opposite side? If a player is to be a successful hitter, he must have a philosophy.

    A solid hitting philosophy includes five basic elements:

    1. The longer the hitter can wait, the better hitter he will be.
    2. Line drives and ground balls win games.
    3. The hitter should have a plan at the plate.
    4. The hitter should understand the three Ps - patience, persistence, and poise.
    5. Drills and fundamentals are important.


    Health & Fitness: The Truth About Smokeless Tobacco



















    FACT: Four pinches of smokeless tobacco contain about as much nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.

    FACT: Because it contains high levels of nicotine, smokeless tobacco is highly addictive and hard to quit using.

    FACT: Tobacco companies add sand, fiberglass, and other abrasives to smokeless tobacco that increase nicotine absorption and destroy tooth enamel.

    FACT: Oral cancers are 50 times more likely in users of smokeless tobacco.

    FACT: Oral cancer kills 30- 50% of those diagnosed with it within 5 years.
