Youth Baseball: Confidence is Everything

Some coaches are masters at building confidence. Some coaches are not. Nic now has a coach who builds confidence.

Games 147 and 148

Last night, Nic went 5 for 6 during a doubleheader with 2 doubles, 3 singles, 3 RBIs and 3 Runs scored. One of his best games of a long baseball year. Nic seems to be regaining his old form with his new team. Two teammates from Nic's former team have joined him on his current team. The three of them combined for 11 hits in 13 ABs with 2 walks and a hit-by-pitch. I could tell that all three were having fun and playing free and easy.

The Main Point

Thanks to his old coach he knows what to do, but his confidence was so low he couldn't do what he had to do well with any consistency. When you combine a high baseball IQ, with skills and confidence success will follow. At the end of the regular season, I could not wait for the season to end. Now I cannot wait for the new spring season to start.
