Mental Block with Throwing
Posted: Wed Jun 14, 2006 8:51 pm
I have been playing baseball my whole life, and as of the past year i have had a severe mental block when i throw the ball. It has gotten to the point where I feel uncomfortable when I hold the ball. Sometimes, when i think about throwing it, my right hand actually feels week, like i have no control over it. I have no problem throwing long distances, but if i have to throw anywhere smaller than 20 feet I cannot do it. As i said, this is something i have done literally my whole life, and i do not understand how it got to this point. I recently got a job teaching little kids baseball, and this is obviously something that I am having trouble dealing with. It probably doesn't help that I am the only female teacher, and feel like i constantly have to prove myself out on the field. any and all help or advice to get me out of this rut would be greatly appreciated.
