Making your time worthwhile in baseball is something that is challenging to some people, but with theses few tips it can actually help you a lot and create a security of all of the memories that you have as a child to a young adult.
Baseball is and always has been America’s favorite pastime, so enjoying every last bit of it is very important. One of the most important sayings I know is that if you have something good, squeeze the life out of it to make sure you got every last drop. I really take this to heart with anything that I do, including baseball. Baseball is one of those things that is more of an experience rather than a sport, which makes it even better for your childhood memories.
One thing to do to make sure that you got the best of every baseball experience is to practice, practice, practice. Many people see the practice as tiring and boring, but really it is a fun time to see your friends and work on your skills. If you are a coach reading this right now, then make sure your players aren’t dreading practice, or else you’re doing something wrong. The other thing about practice is that it obviously makes you better. One of the fun parts about the sport that can make you remember your games more is to be good at them. I’m not saying be the best (because no one is the best) I am just saying get better so that the cool and memorable plays come easier.
The second thing to do to make your time worthwhile in baseball is to get the right gear. If you play with the worst gear or it doesn’t suit you right, you’re doing it all wrong. This is because, in order to do great things in baseball, you have to make sure you are comfortable with your gear. For example, in little league, I had the best bat for me and I hit a home run (which I still remember). In high school, I had a bat that was too heavy for me and I ended up striking out a lot and not being comfortable up at the plate. If you want to look into some gear I suggest www.thebaseballreviews.com because from experience that is the best baseball reviews site that I have ever come across. Trust me.
The last thing that you can do is always have fun and be positive. I know that this is sort of a cliche thing to say but I didn’t realize this until I was in my last year of baseball. I did have a lot more fun that year but my positivity for all of my other years was down because of my performance. As soon as I stopped caring about the other people or players judging me I started smacking the ball. Because of this tip, it was my most memorable year of baseball.
Baseball doesn’t last long for a lot of people, so make sure you pay attention because one day it will stop, and you’ll regret not juicing the life out of these experiences.
