Practice feels tedious. You enjoy certain aspects of practice, like maybe the batting cages. But sitting there, drill after drill, catching the same pop fly in the same position for an extended period of time is monotonous and quite frankly, can get boring. I think you’ll agree that sometime you may even begin wondering if it’s worth it.
You’ll do just fine in the game. You won the last one, so what’s the big deal about this next game? The opponents you’re up against next lost their last game anyways.
Having this mentality is setting yourself up for failure. Instead, try going into every practice remembering that hard work pays off. Without putting 100% into every practice, you’ll never be able to give it your best in the game.
The last place you want to be learning a new skill or running into a fundamentals error for the first time is during a game, so appreciate every drill and prepare well for every game.
