We don’t want to waste anything in life, right? Makes sense. How do I relate this to baseball? I guess every ball player has a certain amount of at-bats in them, and then……it’s over. Wasting at-bats is about the most frustrating thing we can do as a hitter. At-bats are a hitters opportunity to shine. We only get so many. Make the most of them. Make them last. Make them productive. How do you waste an at-bat?: 1. getting “out” on a pitch outside the strike zone (swinging at bad pitches). 2. Not being ready to attack (taking too many strikes) . 3. Repeating the same bad habits that effect your swing negatively….and not doing anything about it. The best redemption a hitter can have on a wasted at-bat is to learn from it and make the necessary adjustment (immediately). And by the way…..pitchers make a lot of mistakes too. It would be another mistake if we didn’t make them pay for it. Don’t miss a good opportunity!
