Its about 3:28 am and i seem to have nothing better to do but think about pitching. This is my time where i usually think about life and think about the past. I try to not let little things dwell on me but somehow they seem to creep up on ya. Ive realized throughout the years that when u step onto that mound u can’t really seem to care what happens next except win the darn game. Do your job to put up that 0 on your innings. Get those batters out. Or just keep the lead. Whatever happens, who cares, just do your job and complete your role.
The only way to step on the field is to feel 100% confident in yourself and in your teammates because heck it is a team sport and heck it is just a game. Well sometimes… But control what you can control. which too me is preparing yourself to the best ability possible that you can. Weights, bullpens, nutrition, running, throwing etc. and trust that your teammates are doing the same. With this mentality you are unstoppable. No hitter will stop you. Step onto that mound with that "hear is my best and im going to beat you"attitude. Be a bulldog. Just remember its you plus 8 more. 9 vs. 1. Just go out there REAR BACK AND THROW THE DARN THING!
