Every player wants to have an outstanding spring season. We all imagine heading to to spring training or our college camps and having the edge. Ultimately, most of the final decisions on positions and pitching rotation is still up in the air. Who will come in ready and earn there spot right out the gate. After all, if your top guy from last year comes in looking terrible it is not likely they will begin the season in the number one role. There is too much counting on it and that is a hard uphill battle to overcome.
What can be done to have that break out season?
No doubt it is important to break and recover after a long season. Especially at the professional level where some guys are throwing over 200 innings along with over 162 games including playoffs and spring training. Even though we need rest, we also need to get better. Bigger, faster, stronger, quicker, more efficient in or delivery, more power in our swing, etc...
The point is a big season is always a dream. But improvement is very practical. It may require discipline, but, with right strategy having your best season yet is always achievable. By improving our athletic abilities, movement patters, and mindset we can lay the foundation to accomplish more than we thought possible. Procrastination is the number one killer of dreams, do not wait on this!
