Top Softball Player Qualities

Want to become a top softball player? Build on these qualities

To be successful in softball, players must do a lot of practice, maintain focus and learn continuously. It is about maintaining the right attitude about the coach, team members and loses. Though the qualities of a player may depend on the position you play in the team, there are core qualities that every player must depict to help win the game. Here are 4 main qualities that will make you become a top player and team member that you should develop.

  • Top speed: In softball, a typical play only lasts about 5 seconds or even less. Good players must be fast in order to quickly get out of batter box, steal bases and catch fly balls. It is because of this that many coaches insist that players think and train like athletes. To build on speed, players have to practice running and accelerating as fast as possible.
  • Explosive strength: Being able to develop a lot of power is very critical. As a pitcher, being powerful makes it easy to throw balls at lightning speed so that the batter can miss it. Besides, the batter needs a lot of power to hit the ball and get it outside the field out of the defensive players range. To develop a lot of power, a player must eat well and participate in a lot of training. Make sure to focus on improving the wrist, legs, hands and core muscles that deliver the power you need in the field.

Performing in Softball – Speed Isn’t Everything

SLIDING CATCHBy Coach Marc

This is title of one of the threads on my discussion forum in referring to pitching.

While it’s true, speed sure helps.

In fact, what do you need to succeed on a softball field in general?

Here’s my take:

1) Great technical skills
2) Confidence
3) Power
4) Mental toughness
5) Decision-making skills
6) Speed

And you could throw in the mix some personality traits like…

– Passion
– Determination
– Competitiveness
– Etc.

These are the probably the most important elements you need to be successful on the field.
