Confidence Can Carry Over from One Sport to Another

Game 25

I have kept the books / stats for baseball, soccer, football, and basketball, but I have never been the scorekeeper for volleyball. I can now cross that off my 50 things to do before I am 50. I kept the volleyball scorebook, while Nic's team won two games and lost one. Nic brought his strong serve and tallied 22 of the 45 points. After the game, we talked about confidence. He succeeds at serving in volleyball because he is confident. I told him that he will start hitting a baseball like he is used to when he gets his confidence back. I hope that the confidence he is building in volleyball will carry over.

The Main Point

One benefit of playing multiple sports at one time is that positive momentum from one sport can carry over to another. I guess the opposite can true too. But I have been using the success from volleyball to help build confidence for baseball.
