Overview

The dominance of the Oakland A's in the late 1980s reflects the success of the sports psychology and performance enhancement program developed by H.A.Dorfman, Instructor/Counselor, and Karl Kuehl, A's administrator. Their program helped produce three Rookies of the year, two MVPs, two Cy Dorfman was also a part of the 1997 World Championship season of the Florida Marlins. Having been with the Marlins from 1994-97, he moved to the challenges of another expansion team, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, in 1998.

Throughout every level of the A's and Marlins, the importance of developing mental skills and strategies which, when combined with physical talents, help a player acheive his peak performance was emphasized and taught. Here in The Mental Game of Baseball, they present their proven and practical program for developing the mental mechanics of the game. The theory and applications are illustrated by anecdotes and insights from many major and minor league players, who at some point discovered the importance of mastering the inner game in order to play baseball as it should be played.

The Mental Game of Baseball, is intended for players, managers, coaches, agents, and administrators at every level of the game, as well as for fans who want a more indepth look at the make-up of the complete baseball player.

The first comprehensive book to explore and explain the mental mechanics of the game, including the insights, experiences, and approaches of the stars.

    A book for everyone

    Although written specifically for ballplayers, the approach presented in this book would help anyone who wants to improve themselves and their lives. It provides a practical example of the application of cognitive behavioral skills that can help anyone. I highly recommend it, not just for ballplayers or baseball enthusiasts.

    ESSENTIAL Key to EXCELLENCE

    I bought this book for myself to better support my son as he became interested in excelling at baseball. I found it to be the best synthesis of essential elements of peak performance of anything I've read: on the field (baseball or otherwise) or off. I have since recommended or given this book to players and parents with fabulous results. READ THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME - ANYWHERE.
