These terms can be discussed at practice or assigned as daily reading for your players before practice. Whether you are a veteran coach seeking that first state title or a high school player trying to make the varsity, there is something for everyone in the book. The 1 Pitch Warrior Mentality is for anyone who wants to attack life and live in the moment. Remember that the past is history, the future is a mystery; we call it the "present" because it is a gift.
