Baseball Athlete Success Evaluation (B.A.S.E.)
" Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical."
Yogi Berra, Hall of Fame Catcher, New York Yankees
Running, batting, catching, sliding, throwing, and jumping – elite Baseball players can do all of these things better than most of us. But that is not the whole story. The reality is that there are athletes that are just as good in performing all of the aforementioned activities and yet their success in the sport is moderate if any. In recent years, the debate over what separates the elite from the rest has shifted from physical capabilities and skills to mental traits and characteristics.
We now know that what determines an athlete's performance has more to do with the mind than the body. After years of research and testing, AthleticAssessments.com created B.A.S.E (Baseball Athlete Success Evaluation), an assessment designed to provide insight into the mind of the athlete and evaluate the extent to which he/she possesses the mental traits and characteristics that are found in elite Baseball players.
