I was about 10 years old playing boys club baseball. Somehow I never was on a winning team. The coaches were always excited to see I was a lefty. Until they saw I was a lefty who batted right handed.I remember one particular game where we were facing one of those giant 12 year old’s pitching against us. I decided my strategy was going to be to stand as far off the plate as I could and not swing at any pitches. The count went to 3-2 three times and I was called out on strikes all three times.
Another time I was facing THE biggest stud in the 10 -12 year old league. First pitch I lined a shot right up the middle.I can still hear my coach “Nice hit , Nice hit”.
It’s a great feeling to get on base. It doesn’t happen that often.Even for the biggest stars. To hit .300 is hard. Making an out 7 out of 10 times still makes you a star.But it’s not all about average. It’s about coming through when the team needs a runner on base, an RBI or a big hit to keep the chain moving.
The big moments are different for both the pitcher and the hitter.If the hitter has the mental edge on the pitcher in the big at bat I think the odds of coming through are good.
Hit your way on base. I know from my experience in boys club ball looking for the walk isn’t going to cut the mustard.
