Love the dynamic
Real talk. Not trying to sell gimmicks, or talk about baseball fads. Just to the point baseball talk. Love the Hard90 challenge for players. Especially right now while everyone is quarantined and a lot of kids aren’t doing anything. Love the mental challenge too. A lot of coaches and players don’t talk about this stuff.
