The Glass Is Neither Half-Full Nor Half-Empty

If you are a player I sure hope you aren’t disappointed if you were hoping for another great article about Getting Dirty because this month’s article is vastly different. In fact it’s for coaches and not players this month. Don’t worry I will be back next month with dirt. Plenty of DIRT. In fact next month I will be starting a series on sliding.

But this month is for coaches. You see the guy who puts this magazine together asked all of us if we could somehow incorporate the National Fastpitch Coaching Association’s National Convention which was held in December into our articles. Yikes! What’s a poor writer to do when he was on the field with players and didn’t get to attend this year? Well not wanting to disappoint him I figured I’d simply pretend I was delivering a presentation at the convention.

While the setting is imaginary the message is real. I love this game and I LOVE “softball players.” I assure you I would have challenged you as strongly in San Antonio as I do in this video. So coaches sit back, relax and pretend you are seeing my presentation as the key note address for the NFCA Convention. What? You didn’t think I was going to pretend I was delivering a presentation on the last day, in the smallest, hottest room right after lunch did you?
