I watched the first practice of little league baseball for 11 little boys this week. They missed catches, pitches, and spent a lot of time in the dirt. They had to focus on a series of step, step, and throw movements during one part of practice. All of the boys were so focused on getting the steps right that they negated the whole act of throwing the ball. They were so focused on trying to do the steps correctly and avoid failing, they missed the end goal of throwing the ball.
