The 10 Commandments of baseball

This was sent to me from Paul Reddick, who got it from one of his followers. Its a MUST PASS ALONG!

The 10 Commandments of Baseball

1. Nobody ever became a ballplayer by walking after a ball

2. You will never become a .300 hitter unless you take the
bat off your shoulder.

3. An outfielder who throws behind  a runner, is locking
the barn after the horse is stolen.

4. Keep your head up and you may not have to hold it down.

5. When you start to slide, S-L-I-D-E. He who changes
his mind may have to change a good leg for a bad one.

6. Do not alibi on bad hops. Anybody can field the good ones.

7. Always run them out. You can never tell.

8. Do not quit.

9. Do not find too much fault with the umpires. You cannot expect
them to be as perfect as you are.

10. A pitcher who hasn’t got control, hasn’t got anything.

    I don’t get number 4? Does it reference holding your head down after you lose a game because you didn’t think positively during the game?

      In my opinion, I took it one of two ways. i like yours as well

      Keep focused and you will stay ahead of your competitor (and win)


      Work hard and you never have to hang your head because you gave it your best.
