Try to remember when you were about five (5) or six (6). Are there things that you can do now that are much better? Things like running, throwing, ducking out of the way of something coming at you, jumping … you know stuff like that.
The reasons for your betterment now, is because your bigger, stronger, and there’s more of you.
There’s more of you in the physical sense in addition to your experiences in life. If you’re fifteen, that’s about nine or ten more years more of the physical and mental stuff.
If you were about five(5) or six(6) years old, and I were to tell you to be patient with your learning curve of baseball skills, be patient with developing your velocity, be patient in the learning to command your pitches - you’d probably say to your self, “that’s easy for you to say coach … but it’s just not working for me right now.” Then, I would say, “ when you get to be, oh… about fifteen (15), you’ll be bigger, stronger and with more of you to do stuff with…”
You’d still say to yourself… “ that’s easy for you to say coach!”
Well, if your going into your teenage years, just remember back when you were about five(5) or six(6), and how right now … you are bigger and stronger, and in just a few years you’ll be even bigger and stronger yet.
Your pitching ability will come together. Your command with come together. Your overall ability will be better than what it is right now – you must have dedication and patience.
Oh, yeah … I know … “That was easy for me to say, coach…” :dozey:
