What are you thinking at the plate?
31:07this episode is a mashup from a hitting lesson and live at-bats with 12 year veteran and former MLB all-star catcher John Buck, myself (a washed up 38 year old junior college lefty), and 64 year old Cory Firzlaff from Sandy Utah. Listen in as John takes Cory through his unorthodox offseason workout routine using training methods he’s adopted from the world top experts including: Slow the game down vision training Weck method Joe Dispenza and Jim Fannin, just to name a few. There’s a lot of really great take away's in here if you’re a player, parent, or coach. Thanks so much for listening. It would mean the world to us if you are enjoying our podcast that you share it with someone who you think might enjoy it. Thanks to 64 year old Cory, who showed up at 6:00am for this workout. This episode does a good job answering the following questions: What do the best hitters think about when they step into the batters box? What do you think about when stepping into the batters box? How are you training your body to be a baseball player long term? How are you improving even though you are an elite player?
1 thing you need to understand about success
40:34This episode is all about setting yourself and your team up for success. I'm asked a question about why I think I've been successful over the years and it comes down to one main factor... commitment. Players who commit to making themselves better, and their teammates better is what makes the difference. Teams who hold each other accountable and don't nurture delusion are setting themselves up for a life full of positivity and success.
