About The Author
The one thing I must say about losing is that it is fair. That's right -losing is fair. If you lose, that means someone else won. Someone else was better than you or perhaps you beat yourself. If you are a motivated person, the loss can motivate you. Or it can devastate you to the point where you cannot find it within yourself to come back. Losing can teach us how to overcome and how to respond.

Honestly, it is so much deeper than hitting mechanics. I have never been stuck on swings. I don't argue about mechanics. If someone is teaching something crazy and it works, God bless them. The world needs more innovation anyway. Every hitter is different so why would I want to teach everybody the same exact thing. That would be stupid. Seriously. In reality, every hitter has a natural swing. I allow hitters to do what they naturally want to do, then add that to what I believe and what has worked. Sometimes hitters are successful doing things I hate, but who am I to argue with success? I let them do it if it works. If it doesn't work, then we figure out what will work. Sometimes that takes an hour, and sometimes that takes years. But I have never given up on a hitter, even if they give up on themselves. It's a never- ending process -a roller coaster. Here is a quote from my new book (coming soon):
Passion and energy must accompany focus when you are getting your reps in. I feel like too many hitters are working hard but are not necessarily getting better. In Tee Work you should feel your errors right away. It should bother you enough to want to fix them. If not, you'll be slow to improve.

I have been meaning to write this for some time now, but I have been distracted by some of my day-to-day routines. Anyway, I was working with a group of 10 softball players and I asked them to throw their bats onto the ground. Then I added up the total retail value of their bats and came up around $3k, not including taxes and shipping. Next, I asked them the magical question, "How many
