Baseball, Balance, and Life

Cultural Offering reminds us of the wisdom to be found on a baseball diamond:

The secret? It is all about balance. Want to hit well? Plant your feet shoulder-width apart. Bring the bat up, be balanced, focus and explode through the ball. You will do well. I promise. Pitching? Balance. If you don't reach a point of balance, your pitches will be all over the place. Achieve balance right before you release that pitch and you will be amazed at how quickly you get better. Fielding? Balance. Throwing? Balance. You get the point. Kids who throw off-balance end up throwing in the dirt or over another kid's head. Kids who field off-balance, miss the ball or fall down and miss the play.
