At times I feel I have entered the world of the surreal with the sport of baseball. I was watching a scrimmage last week and my son was batting lead off. Pitch one, great pitchers pitch touched the black on the outside, would not have wanted him to swing so we are good. Pitch two was just below the belt, three inches outside middle...he watched strike two. Last year that would have been a double to the gap in right center. After the game he brought it up immediately saying..."I have no idea what happened on that first ab...I saw it, I was ready to swing and then... I just couldn't". I just reassured him as best I could that it was an anomaly. Baseball is such a mind game and I will not say another word to him about it, but if it does happen again and he asks I would like to have some cohesive thoughts.
Has anyone encountered this in their, or their sons experience. I could laugh it off as early season but I could sensed he was really confused by the experience. So question one is have you experienced it, and question two would be did you do anything mentally or physically that you felt helped.
