Jay P. Granat, Ph.D., Psychotherapist and Founder of http://www.StayInTheZone.com works closely with hitters and their coaches. According to Granat, "Once a player understands what they need to do mentally and physically when they come up to bat, they tend to raise their batting average significantly."
Baseball players typically call http://www.StayInTheZone.com when they are struggling. Some are nervous at the plate. Some are being pressured by coaches, scouts or parents. Others are stuck in slumps. Some hitters are great in the cage but terrible when the game is on the line.
According to Granat, who has been featured in many major media outlets including The New York Times, Good Morning America, ESPN, The Wall Street Journal, Sporting News and Tennis Magazine, "There is some debate as how much of hitting is mental. Some think hitting is ninety per cent mental and others think it is thirty per cent mental. However, if one believes that the mind plays an important role in batting, then an individual who wants to improve needs to devote some percentage of training time and energy to training the mind to get into the zone when you get to the ball park."
Hitters get into their zone differently and it is important for every player to know what helps him or her to ease into this comfortable and confident state of mind. One player needs to calm himself to hit well. Another needs more energy to hit well.
This new program and the free book, Get Into The Zone In Just One Minute, show baseball players dozens of techniques for ending slumps and for hitting with more power, consistency and confidence.
"Most players like to load the CD chapters onto their Ipods. They listen in the locker room, in the bus or in the dugout. The program shows them how to get in the zone and Stay in the zone," says Granat. It is called 101 Ways To Break A Hitting Slump With Sport Psychology.
