"The Mental Game of Baseball is a book I've traveled with for eight years. Now I'll travel with The Mental ABC's of Pitching. Many of us are blessed with God-given talents for the baseball field, but few of us figure out the mental part of baseball to truly succeed. This book helps pitchers dedicate themselves to that aspect of the game." -- Jaime Moyer, Pitcher, Seattle Mariners
"Wherever he is in any given year, we find him and bring him in. The players wouldn't have it any other way. He 'opens doors' and provides insight like no one else. This book is vintage Dorfman. Every player and coach will have one." -- Pat Murphy, Head Baseball Coach, Arizona State University

The A,B,C format makes it more of a reference book than a cover-to-cover read. So, I skimmed the various chapters, like Finishing Hitters where he reminds the pitcher to Work Ahead, and Stay Ahead and not let up after going up 0-2 on a batter or trying too hard to throw a perfect pitch. I reviewed several of these concepts with my daughter at home and got to use them in our first tournament this weekend. My daughter came in to relieve a struggling starter and I would periodically call out some of these reminders for different situations, "Attack the Zone", "Work Ahead, Stay Ahead", etc...
The game was tied when she came in and she was able to shutout the other team the remaining 4 innings with 6 strikeouts and we end up winning. (actually took 2nd place in the tourney) I really think this book was helpful in keeping her head in the right place. I recommend it.

recommend for all pitchers and coaches. Baseball is at least 70% mental to play well and pitching may be even a higher percent.Published 14 months ago by STEVE WATKINS
