Training Principles of Infield Mastery
TTB (Train The Brain): The Brain must be trained just like the fundamental skills of infield play “Train the Brian” (TTB). We believe strongly in the (95/5) “Baseball is 5% Mental and 95% Physical and the 5% Mental controls the 95% Physical.” With the Mental Game being critical, we incorporate mental game training throughout the entire camp: in warmup, catch play, drill work, game speed exercises, workout routines, etc.
The Law of Attraction (LOA) is real: The body and mind work together. The body seeks to accomplish what the mind thinks and pictures. In order for an infielder to be a play-maker, his mind must be right. “Get Your Mind Right” (GYMR).
SVT (Sequence Variation Training): SVT is a training concept that teaches infield play through different sequences of game-like movements. The variations of movements and plays are put into sequences and then mastered. SVT begins with predictable movement patterns. Once the predictable patterns are learned through isolation movements and below-game-speed drills, infielders then move into the unpredictable challenge phase of SVT and into the mastery phase of 3RP.
3RP (Read – Recognize – React – Precision): 3RP is the ability to read, recognize and react unconsciously, with precision, within tenths of seconds. Our training methods develop 3RP. The result of 3RP: infielders consistently executing both routine and great play without thought and little effort (Wu-Wei). With 3RP Mastery, average infielders become great, and great infielders become the best!
