PODCAST: How to Win the 90% of Baseball That Is the Mental Game

by Brian Cain, MPM

Bob Tewksbury is an icon in the field of mental performance in baseball. Largely considered one of the best control pitchers of all time and best mental performance coaches in the sport.  He was a 1992 MLB All-Star and in the last century, no pitcher has a lower ratio of base on balls per innings pitched.

“Tewks” had a playing career that spanned from 1986 to 1998 in which he racked up 812 strikeouts. After his career he went back to school at Boston University and earned a masters degree in applied sport psychology. He has worked as a mental performance coach with the Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants and currently serves in that capacity with the Chicago Cubs.

He’s the author of “90% Mental” and in this podcast we discuss:

  • The Flow State and having a good shitty day
  • Slowing the game down and the power of simplicity
  • Anchor statements and the power of self-talk
  • The 3 critical questions every athlete must ask themselves to perform consistently
  • And much more…
