Handle Stress when Baseball Tryout

1. Be prepared for the challenge. As soon as you decide to attend the tryouts, whether it’s 6 months prior or 1 week, begin preparing your body for baseball activity. You notice I stress baseball. Doesn’t matter if you’re just finishing playing basketball or wrestling, although in excellent physical condition, the muscles must be prepared for different actions.

To briefly demonstrate, a wrestler has been training with weights and physical activities which produce muscle, muscle which is designed to grasp, exert maximum strength and provide short explosive reactions.

A baseball player requires elongated muscles for fluid and extended running, arms and shoulders move differently throwing a baseball in comparison to holding a head lock.

The key is to utilize a stretching program which will transform the bulk muscle mass into elongated, yet very powerful muscle. One must remember, building bigger muscle mass, actually tears it, but stretching keeps the muscle from tearing.

Begin throwing, slowly and at short distances, until you can safely expose the arm to long toss and throwing hard. A sure fired bet to not make the team is to show a rocket for an arm the first practice, catching everyone’s’ attention, then short arm weak throws the next day because the arm is sore.

Once you’re physically ready, it’s time to become mentally ready.

2. Unless you’re from a small school and have an automatic spot on the team because there’s only 12 players trying out, you’ll be facing competition numbering between 30 to 100, a daunting site which will make your stomach queasy.

Here’s the key to handling this problem… Every one of them are scared and filled with doubt too. Most people have great difficulty publicly speaking to a large audience mostly due to feelings of inadequacy, they feel the people in the crowd are smarter, or whatever.

A college professor of mine taught me a little trick I’ll pass along to you. Visualize every person in the crowd stripped down to their underwear, which will make them appear silly and less daunting, making you superior to them. Visualize the other players wearing silly hats or anything else which your mind sees as inferior. That’ll pop the bubble that every one is better than you.
