#1 Don't give up on yourself if you have had a rough day. Everyone has them, including me, quite often.

#2 Listen to your coaches. They really do want to help you get better.

#3 Try hard at practice. Play the way you want to play in a game situation because if you do not bother correcting a mistake at practice you will make the same mistake in the game.

#4 Be kind to your teamates and encourage them. Your team should be your second family because you need to know that they always have your back.

#5 Go up to the plate knowing that you can hit the ball out over the fence. If you have confidence and believe in yourself you are more likely ro succeed.
