Planning & Consistency

By Tyler Tompson –


With school starting back up these next few weeks, there is plenty of opportunity for growth in baseball for everyone in the coming months. Whether you are in middle school, high school, college, or professional baseball, this is the time of year where you can take your game to the next level.


What everyone needs to recognize before they act is the area of their game that they need to improve on. Maybe you struggled this past season with your off-speed pitches and locating them, and you need to focus on either a new pitch or on your command. Maybe you struggled with command in general and need to focus more on throwing the ball over the plate. Maybe you need to focus on being more disciplined with your development and your own personal throwing program moving forward, committing to your plan 4-6 days per week. Whatever the case may be, we all have something we can work on to take our game to the next level.


Once we recognize what we need to specifically work on, then we can create a plan and set goals for ourselves. Personally, I think it is best to set personal goals for the short term, midterm, and long term. By doing this, you can look at the small short-term goals and the step-by-step processes you can take while still seeing and still working to reach that long-term goal.


Plan out what you need to accomplish each day, then move on to each week with your goals. Once you have each of those, you can then see how the months will spread across the fall and into the winter/pre-season. You will have a concrete picture in your mind on how you can reach your goals!


Lastly, and I mentioned it above briefly, have the self-discipline to carry out and fulfill the goal(s) you set for yourself. Believe in yourself and commit to the day-to-day plan you set. This is where consistency becomes extremely important; sticking with your plan and having that daily regularity will start to play a huge part. You probably will not notice it that first week, or even that first month, but the more and more you commit to it, it will become engraved in you and will become a habit. You will be amazed by what you can accomplish just by planning out your days and sticking with it day in and day out.
