“Trying” Is a Destructive Habit


Pro Pitching Institute

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

The instant someone points out something you need to do, and your answer is “I’m trying”, please realize “trying” has become an excuse for not “doing”.

Looking for Perfection?

You want your pitching to match your unreasonably exacting standards.

Your biggest challenge: Stop “trying” to be perfect.

Your solution: Accept missing your target, but don’t accept missing your target by an unacceptable distance on two consecutive pitches. When this happens, find out “why” , permanently eliminate the cause, and make your goal a series of back-to-back good outings. 

Accepting Limited Improvement?

No matter how hard you “try” to change your mechanics you rarely, if ever, see any significant improvement.

Your biggest challenge: Realizing and accepting that what you’re doing isn’t working.

Your solution: Instead of “trying” to change your mechanics, focus on the things that cause you to move down the mound the way you do, and measure your improvement by your ability to keep your Team close enough to win on consecutive games.  

Stop “Trying”, start “doing”!

Coach Skip is trained to understand what’s needed to get your lower body to produce the results you expect and turn you into one of best Pitchers in your area.
