Leaside Baseball Speaker Series - Mental Side to Hitting

Wednesday September 25, 7pm at Amsterdam Brewery in Leaside

In our commitment to player, coach, and parent learning and growth of passion for the game, Leaside Baseball is proud to invite you to our first presentation as part of the Leaside Baseball Speaker Series.

Mental Side of Hitting
Steve Springer and Marcus Knecht will share with us how to get the most confident player to show up and be part of the game for years to come.

The most competitive players on the field get rid of the stats, anxiety and pressure, they learn failure leads to success, they understand how to be a value to their team when hitting 0 for 4, and how to make their mental strength as strong as their physical abilities.

"Getting great at showing up at every game likes it's opening day."
