With his natural Talent Spahni Estill would have been a great Pitcher but would he have won Well Over 300 games had he not worked so diligently at his Trade Spahn was a hard worker. He figured All the angles both from pitching viewpoint and from he other player s Side.

Gilchrist As a consultant and who now lives i Denver played 14 seasons in the Al and Canada. He played with the Broncos last year but missed All games after the season opener with a knee injury.

Quite a few of today s pitchers Lac the patience to devote their time to the necessary hard work the want to be sensations immediately or at least overnight Sain commented. I think one of the things pitching coach finds most difficult is convincing a Young player that they have to work on All the facets that they can t neglect their Strong Points to improve the weak ones. It becomes abase of working hard to main Tain your god Given strength Sand at the same time working doubly hard to improve the oth ers. Eleven approaches pitchers can learn a lot by helping each other. I be always encouraged them to kick idea around. If there Are 11 different pitchers on a team there Are 11different approaches to the game Sain continued. And each of these pitchers is an expert in his own right. Maybe one can throw a better curve than the rest or a better knuckle Ball or Slider. And maybe another Man can pick up some pointers that will improve his game. I be always believed too that books records special pro Grams and so Forth that give people inspiration and desire play prominent roles in a Man achievement. It gets Down to what i said earlier about the importance of the right mental at bested Feller Sain pitched for the Bosto braves for seven years winning 20 or More games in four of them and Topping the National league in wins in 1948 with 24.the braves won the Pennant that year and he notched one of their two world series Victor ies when he bested the great Bob Feller in a 2-0 Mound Duel.
