When it comes to youth baseball motivation, I get asked "How To Encourage Ballplayer's Development While Keeping Perspective" from time to time.

Here's my response, especially to young ballplayers...

Youth baseball motivation #1

If I told you that you could play in the big leagues but you could only get there after turning 25, would you say deal or no deal?

Deal, right? That's a no brainer.

So why is that we think we need to be the next Mike Trout or Altuve at 13 years old?

This would happen often - we would draft a young 18 yr old stud for the Blue Jays. In his first year of Rookie ball, he'd pop his first 0-20, and then he'd looked like someone just ran over his dog.

Here's what I would tell him.

"Bro! You're 18!!!!"

Same spiel. "Big leagues at 25??"

He'd shake his head yes.

When he realizes he has another 7 YEARS to get better, today's bad game or yesterday's 0-4 doesn't really mean anything!

Now he plays with freedom.

Players, we have to keep perspective.

Everyone wants to get in the microwave. No one wants to be in the oven.

Being a good ballplayer is a slow cook.

In short, I didn't start my SR year in high school. I got cut my freshman year in college. I played in the big leagues.
