Getting a Grip

Things heard at our practices and games...

“Toss it”
  • A great way to reinforce that we all make mistakes, but the most important play/pitch/moment is the next one.
  • Looks like throwing something over your shoulder behind you.
  • For example, following a dropped pop-up: “Toss it and get ready for the next ball to be hit to you”.
