If you are reading this article, chances are you are trying to figure out how to have more fun playing baseball. First of all, if you aren't having fun in something, then you probably shouldn't be doing it. If you are forced into playing baseball or if you just don't enjoy it anymore, I recommend that you stop playing. It may be hard for you to do because maybe your family has always played or maybe your family is pushing you to do it, but if you don't truly love the game and if you don't enjoy doing it, then it's time for you to hang up your cleats. But if you enjoy the game and you are just simply worn out by all the strikeouts and all the failures, then this is the article for you to read.
The first thing you need to remember that baseball is a game. Unless you are playing at the professional level, baseball is not your job or your career. You need to treat it like a game. If you fail, it's okay to get upset for a little while and think about what you did wrong, but definitely do not dwell on the past. This will only lead to future failures.
The next thing you need to do if you are trying to have more fun playing the game of baseball is enjoy the simple things. A lot of the times when players feel overwhelmed or they are just not having fun, it is because they are trying to do too much at once. Try to enjoy showing up at the ballpark. Try to enjoy the simple things such as chewing sunflower seeds. Try and enjoy every time you step into the batter's box. Smell the grass, smell the air, and just have fun. Another great thing to do to have more fun playing baseball is to enjoy it with other people. Make jokes with your teammates, laugh, and chitchat about whatever you feel like talking about. This is a great way to relieve stress and have more fun playing a simple game.
I hope you've enjoyed this article. These are a few simple ways on how you can become a better baseball player, a more rounded player, and have more fun doing it!
