Well, it’s official, Derek Jeter is in Trenton, so it only makes sense to talk baseball.
I just finished reading Shawn Green’s new book, “The Way of Baseball” and enjoyed it thoroughly.
One of the things that stood out most was his after at-bat routine.
Whether Green hit a home run or made an out, when he took off his batting gloves, the at-bat was over.
He let it go.
Good or bad.
In other words, you shouldn’t get too high or too low.
Once that happens, the ego is involved and you are out of the present moment and cannot reach peak performance.
In competition, you either win or you learn, and regardless of the result, you need to let it go and get ready for the next round/at-bat/shot/point/stroke.
