Quote of the day

    sounds like there’s not much room for mental weakness in the baseball clubhouse, but apparently, the psychologist is gaining more and more respect among players who have it much harder than i could ever imagine. that 6-7 month grind, the expectations and media, competition…not an easy life. a lot of money, but still.

    • I’ve skimmed a couple articles recently talking about sports psychology and its benefits even at the high school level. It’s definitely gaining recognition in the sports world, in all sports at all levels.
