Hundreds of thousands of baseball players
have tried the traditional sports psychology (positive thinking) methods
to improve their performance.
Some of them have had some success - some of the time.
But from speaking with thousands of baseball players from around the world,
it seems that many of you have given up in frustration.
It's not that you weren't doing it correctly or often enough, or that
positive thinking and affirmations have no value, it's simply that you
were missing a major piece of the puzzle.
You were practicing DENIAL. And a part of you knew it.
As they say - "Denial ain't just a river in Egypt".
You were essentially denying the part of you that knew what you were affirming,
"I have a .300 batting average" simply was not true.
Even as you were repeating your affirmation over and over again, part
of you whispered "bull****".
I call that part of you the "inner critic".
And let's face it; the inner critic may have a point.
After all, it may be a fact that so far into this season, you average
is only .150.
The inner critic is the voice of all negative emotions - fear, doubt,
anger, embarrassment, etc. It can even be an underlying cause of physical
symptoms such as tension, sweaty palms, and a variety of aches and pains.
The Renegade Mindset Techniques (RMT) for Baseball System deals specifically
with recognizing and eliminating the inner critic. RMT is a sports-specific
form of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), the most popular method in
the emerging world of Energy Psychology.
Instead of denying its existence, and allowing it to subtly sabotage our
best efforts at improvement, we focus our attention on it and "clear
it" with the simple yet powerful RMT protocols.
Once the negative thought or belief is acknowledged and cleared, a positive
affirmation can more effectively take hold in your conscious and subconscious
mind. You will have eliminated its competition, and therefore it will
be easier to accept.
The RMT for Baseball routines always begin with recognition of the negative
issue. Then you will focus on that particular issue while "tapping"
to eliminate it.
DO NOT be concerned about "being negative"!
Remember, it is the acknowledgement and clearing of the negative that
is the key.
With the negative feeling/emotion cleared, THEN you can install the positive
substitution with ease.

"Being involved in baseball as a player and coach my entire life I can tell you that the mental aspect of the game is what separates the big money players from the rest of the crowd. These mindset techniques are revolutionary, unique, and yes... Renegade! In just a short time of using these techniques on myself as well as my more advanced ball players, we all agree that our confidence on the field has dramatically improved, we are seeing the ball better, our breathing iscontrolled, there is no anxiety, and our bodies simply feel right. And the best part is, if we loose focus at any point, we simply get it back with a round of RMT.
Where was this when I was playing college ball? I would have had a career playing with the pro's instead of just working with them.
Yours in Baseball,
“As a coach to elite athletes, and a competitor myself, I give my highest recommendation to the RMT methods of mental game conditioning. Stephen has laid out a simple to follow plan that will accelerate the performance and ultimate success of ANY athlete in ANY sport. It is required reading at Pilgers Training Systems, because any coach or player without these tools is at a severe disadvantage.
In the end it’s all about results, and RMT produces results in spades!”

"I just can’t thank you enough for how your book has helped my 14 year old son. He has always wanted to make the traveling team, but could never play quite well enough in the tryouts. He would just get nervous and timid. Each year that you didn’t make it seemed to add to the disappointment.
This season that has all changed, thanks to your book! After using the tapping in the off season he seems like a different player in the pressure situations, and was the best in tryouts for the traveling team. I get nervous watching him play, but he sure isn’t.
And the confidence seems to be more than just on the field. He just seems to be a happier kid all around.

Eliminate Pre-Game Anxiety
"Dear Coach Stephen,
I just wanted to write to you to tell you about how impressed I am with your new book, Renegade Mindset Techniques for Baseball. After reading your book RMT for Golf, and applying the techniques on my golf clients, I couldn’t wait to see what techniques you came up with for baseball. As I expected, I was very impressed!
After reading the baseball book, and seeing how you applied the tapping for different baseball issues, I was psyched to get started. I am currently working with a college baseball team, and since it is still cold out, and not very conducive to playing baseball outside, I have started with a lot of the visual challenges you describe in your book.It has absolutely made a difference in lowering the intensity levels of specific game related anxieties. As today is the first day of spring, I look forward to seeing how my ballplayers see the difference on the field
in real game situations.
I specifically liked the batting cage challenge, and the way you scored the results before and after. I always find that my clients enjoy the games that you have created for athletes to judge their results before and after tapping. It becomes very tangible for them.
Again, thanks for writing a book like this. I think it is priceless for anyone who is interested in improving their enjoyment of playing baseball, as well as their statistics!
Exponential Success Always!"

"Your RMT book is great! I'm a catcher for XXXXXXXX University. The competition is tough and the pressure to perform in every game is high.
In the pre-season I have played really well behind the plate and at bat. After 6 games I'm at 385 (ended last season at 220). I know its early to be excited, but there is a huge difference in my confidence and how I am always in the zone.
This is going to be a great season for me. I'll keep you posted.
