I like this approach. When pro scouts and/or college coaches recruit pitchers, they look for how a kid handles himself in adverse situations – bad umps, bad plays in the field, bad field conditions, etc. Skills are skills. Mental toughness is a differentiator. It absolutely, positively does not matter if a kid makes 20 errors in a game behind a pitcher, so long as the pitcher carries himself like a professional.
Glad you’re feeling better about the situation.
