You don’t have to bat a thousand

I don’t know if you’re into baseball at all but there are a lot of massively useful cross overs between the 2 sports

 

Steff has researched it pretty thoroughly and has come up with some many great drills that they do and adapted them to fast bowling training

 

The hip shoulder separation and ‘donkey kick’ being a couple (which will all be part of his pacelab programs dropping in October)

 

The batting as well

 

Julian Wood, the power hitting coach (we did a podcast with him a while back which you can still catch on itunes) spent a lot of time, and still does, over in the states seeing what he can pick up and bring over to cricket, and he is one of the most in demand specialist coaches around at the moment

 

But what I like are some of the ways they judge performance, and im talking about the big hitters here

 

I used to hear that they are batting at .25 or they had a great season and were up to .324 or something like that

 

It drove me mad that I didn’t really know what they were talking about

 

Then I found out it the number of home runs they go out of 10 times they were on the mound

 

So if it worked out they were getting 2.5 home runs out of 10 their average was .25, and so on

 

Now in a sport where you can get pretty crucified in this is where the learning comes in

 

You don’t have to succeed every time youre up to bat (or bowl)

 

If youre batting at .3 in baseball youre earning millions of dollars

 

That means 7 out of 10 times youre failing, and still one of the top players

 

Lets look at the T20 batsmen, they don’t get big runs every game, its just not possible, but when they come off then wow, look out

 

So don’t beat yourself up over a bad game

 

Keep working hard, practising your skills, making sure you are getting your body in the best condition possible and you can still be a success
