Does anyone have a good recommendation for a mental hitting book? My search here didn’t locate. Tons on Amazon, but would like to narrow the field. Thanks
”The Science of Hitting”
Heads up baseball. The first version, although 2.0 is really good.
"Mental Game of Baseball" is the go-to and required reading for many college programs. The player names are quite dated but the principals are still sound.
Son used H A Dorfman's books...Mental ABC's of ...Hitting, Pitching, etc., when he was in Jr High-HS, 2000-2006...
Now mind you that these have been around abt 15-20 yrs, so there may be a newer approach.
Thanks for the referrals.
Ted Williams ability to "read" the baseball and investigate every phase of the game to his advantage was his "Science of Hitting". He did the same when he flew the jet in the Korean War. During a September game at Fenway Park, the opposing pitcher a "Rookie" entered the game to pitch to Williams. Ted went to his dugout and ask "does anyone know this pitcher"?
No one did.
Ted batted and "struck out". The Rookie sent the game ball to the Red Sox locker room. "Have Ted sign this ball"!.
Two weeks later the same pitcher is pitching and Ted is batting. Ted hits a HR in the 2nd DECK and he is "galloping" [running ]around the bases, he yells at the pitcher "kid go get that ** ball and I will sign it"!
