“Baseball is a game of failure. How are you going to deal with failure?”

Do you want to improve at the game of baseball? Mic Knox would like to help you grow in your knowledge, skills and abilities. Mic provides private lessons for baseball enthusiasts from 5 years – 25 years of age. He offers weekly instruction for pitching, hitting, base running and fielding. Mic gives special attention to not only the mechanics, but also to the mental aspect of the game. He always says, “Baseball is a thinking man’s game.” Baseball has to be played with your heart and your head. What is more, he points out that baseball is a game of failure. The best hitters only bat .300 or so, which means they fail 70% of the time. That’s worst than a weatherman. Therefore, how will you deal with failure? That’s why the mental side of the game is so important.

Finally, Mic believes there are three crucial areas that allow you to grow in the game: your coach, your commitment and your competition. Mic greatly benefited from playing for great coaches like Mike Power, Mark Elkins, Guerry Baldwin, Jeff Guy, Davis May, Ray Tanner and Mike Hurst.
