Why Being "All In" On Baseball Can Be Dangerous  Be Dangerous

December 16, 20221 min read

Having non-baseball priorities in your life will make you a better baseball player.

Former MLB pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was grounded by his faith and his mission. And this made it so when things with baseball became difficult, he had a strong foundation and identity to lean on.

"The greatest blessing I had as a professional baseball player was having a deeper sense of purpose in my life...I wasn't a baseball player. I was an individual that had baseball as a talent that I could build off and use to make the world a better place, to bless lives, to provide for a family...those who are just all in and have nothing else, it makes baseball that much harder."

Maintaining perspective as a baseball player is difficult because of how fleeting success can be. Having more than just baseball to your identity can be so helpful when things go wrong on the field. Being a well rounded human being will make you a better player.

In my mind, Pelotero is the greatest tool created for strength coaches. It takes the most tedious part of our job and does it in seconds. It frees up our time to be better coaches and leaders.

Pelotero allows me to do all my in-house assessments and programming. I can send people home with plans for how to get better. It has cut down a ton of programming hours and we don't have to get into excel anymore.
