A Champion's State of MindPaperback - 2005
Working from a combined vast experience, the authors break down the elements of mental toughness into a package that is easy to understand for players, managers, coaches, and parents. Their goal is winning baseball. They show how every at-bat or pitch is a test, particularly as players advance to higher levels. The book will help build attitude, confidence, and the ability to focus and make adjustments, helping players reach their maximum performance. In Mental Toughness, many leading professional players share their insights and offer a glimpse into the minds of major leaguers how they think and why they act in the ways they do. Praise for Mental Toughness: "A very important book...it should be required reading for all professional players." Keith Lieppman, Oakland A's director of player development. "I wish I'd had Mental Toughness around when I was a kid trying to figure out how to get to the big leagues and the Hall of Fame. It's a great book." Don Sutton, Hall of Fame pitcher. "I can't imagine a better helper than Mental Toughness. It's a book that can show you how important the mental game is, and how to master it." Orel Hershiser, Cy Young Award winner."
