What is the mental aspect of baseball?


Answer by  Coach21 (7)

Baseball is the most "on and "off" sport there is. When the player is "off" he has to deal with the result of the last event (the previous pitch or swing) and then turn the page to be "on" and in focus on cue.

Baseball has much less action than other sports. all the players have the skill and ability to catch the ball, throw the ball, and hit the ball out of the park... the key is that you have to be able to do it when it matters - this requires focus.

The mental aspect of baseball is the understanding of the required game skills that the brain translates into physical reaction in a given situation. Through repeated training, you not only teach your body how to react, but you also train your mind in the proper reaction to the pitched, thrown or batted ball.

Every trained baseball player has the potential to become a golden glove, or an elite batter. Whether in the field or at bat, the key to executing technique is being READY!


Answer by  spencer (17)

The mental aspect of baseball is to be just confident enough not to be cocky, and to know you are going to come out on top. Every at-bat needs to be approached as a battle, and every pitch needs to be thrown as a chess move. The more confident player wins.

The psychology behind a successful game of baseball is the ability to "size up" the opposing team by scanning eye movements or "tells" can anticipate their next action.

I believe that the key mental aspect of baseball occurs in batting. Baseball is 90% a team sport but in batting it is totally an individual focus.
