Back during my high school baseball days I entertained somewhat ungrounded aspirations of being a big leaguer someday. I read Ted Williams’ “Science of Hitting” until it made my eyes cross. I did so Hoping that I would come up with something that would miraculously turn me in to something I wasn’t. Mr. Williams speaks at length in his book of the mental toughness and concentration needed to be a great or even above average hitter. An above average major league hitter can carry a .300 or better batting average.
