Regardless of who you are, you lost something this spring…your HS season, your college season, your team’s season, or your son’s season. Baseball is in a pause. This is something that we’ve never seen at this large of a scale…ever. This sucks. There is no denying it.
There are not enough synonyms of “awful” that will ever describe what has been taken away from so many people this spring due to COVID-19. It is absolutely unfair.
So what can we do about it?
The answer, make the best of the situation. Screw COVID-19!
Your season got canceled? You can’t change that. What you CAN do is control what you look like the next time you do get to step on the field. And there will be a next time.
No field? No gym? No proper training equipment? You know who else doesn’t have any of those things? All the players you will be competing against! The players that will be successful when this is all over will be the ones that got creative and found a way to improve when the odds were against them.
Don’t focus on the things you can’t control or the things that were taken away from you. Focus on being ready next time you GET to step on the field. Be obsessed.
