Learning How Focus As A Hitter In Baseball

Learning how to focus, or what others might call concentration or paying attention is a critical mental skill set for baseball players.  When you are focused or “in the moment”, the game seems to slow down.  Sport psychologists often call this “being in the zone” or in a “flow state”.  On the other hand when you are not in the zone, the game feels like it is speeding up and you cannot keep up with the pace.
