Finally, it is that time of the year you have been waiting for — baseball season.
If it is your first time playing high school baseball or trying out for varsity, you may be feeling nervous for the tryouts, but it is extremely important to just stay relaxed and enjoy it.
If you have done as stated in an earlier blog post, hopefully you have already met the head coach and assistant coaches beforehand. If not, introduce yourself to the head coach and the rest of the coaching staff. This way, they can put a name to your face.
Secondly, just play the game the way you always have done it. Don't overdo it, don't step out of your comfort zone, and don't try to do everything. Remember, you can't hit a grand slam with nobody on base.
Coaches don't expect you to be the next Mike Trout by making amazing plays, hitting every pitch possible, and stealing every base. They want a player who is fundamentally sound and does the things necessary to be successful.
As cliche as it may sound, you can only control the things you can control — hustle at all times, be a great teammate, and do what you know you're capable of. Coaches are looking for a player who can be part of a team, not be the team.
In the end and most importantly, remember that this is the best time of the year, and you should enjoy every moment of it.
