Mental Approach: Goldfish

Confidence is arguably the most important aspect of hitting

You’re wasting valuable batting practice time, without a plan to grow confidence on game day


  • The fear of failure triggers nervousness in the batter’s box.
  • Nervousness triggers batting mistakes such as: flying open, lunging/jumping out, stepping in the bucket, pulling the head off the ball, and a tense/long swing.
  • The stress of failure results in physically, and mentally exhaustion; during the course of a baseball season.


Striking out can be disappointing for players, parents, and coaches; comforting players after a strikeout. The feeling of letting your team down is challenging to overcome. You need a plan to deal with the “irrational thoughts” associated with hitting slumps. When you lack in confidence, and you’re in a hitting slump, negative self-talk triggers a snowball effect – your thoughts spiral out of control, and irrational feelings of despair take over. Learn how to use internal dialogue, dismissing irrational thoughts.

Clear your mind, shrugging off failure; having  a memory like a goldfish, whether the game was good, or bad.
