Merry Christmas

Since today's Christmas and it's now all quiet with my wife taking a well deserved nap after all of the activity surrounding last night and into this morning and the kids going off to the movies, it got me thinking of what I wanted to do.

I wanted to (and have already done) connect with family and friends. I wanted to share with them this cute video I posted of my son when he was 4 in a Christmas musical. It's really a riot and is only 45 seconds, so I'd love for you to see it.

Since you're like family to me, I'd like to share it with you as well. For those of you not celebrating Christmas, I think you'll find it cute and funny as well (Happy Holidays to you.)

It's my first posting to YouTube. Please visit it and feel free to comment on it and rate it and feel free to pass it along to others. My son would love to be a YouTube star. He's now 12.

Now that I've learned how to get something up on YouTube, my goal next year is to get hitting information to you in video format! Look for that coming soon. Please visit this short, cute and funny video that is perfect for the holidays.

Here's the rest of the story

If you were looking for good hitting information instead (or in addition to the video), here's a good story that follows the same kid in the aforementioned video and tells of the steps he took from being an average player to becoming an All-Star. (much later in life :)

It really is a good model for any of you to follow in trying to reach your goals.

The beginning of a new year is always a good time to commit to new goals. So what could be better than committing to being a better player and hitter? Lots of good tips scattered throughout the story. I think there's something for everyone.

Read the story and get inspired.

Again, if you have any questions or comments you can write to me via e-mail.

To see other hitting tips in past newsletters, go to the past issues of my hitting newsletter page.

Welcome to you who are new to my hitting e-zine.

Thanks for reading and talk to you next time.
