Summer is the time to showcase your abilities at travel baseball, all star and USA Baseball tryouts. It is also the time of year high school players show off their talents in search of exposure at College Showcases and Camps.
As they say - "the two things you can control on the field are your attitude and effort." These two things are key ingredients to a successful tryout. The Hard 90 staff starts evaluating these two things from the moment they meet you.
On the attitude front, coaches look for players that have an open/growth mindset. These players listen intently to the coach when they are speaking and do their best to apply information.
Additionally, coaches look for players that have grit - these players do not dwell on bad hops or other miscues on the field - these players immediately move on to the next pitch in search of the solution.
