Left Bank Books welcomes former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Bob Tewksbury, who will sign and discuss his new book, Ninety Percent Mental: An All-Star Player Turned Mental Skills Coach Reveals the Hidden Game of Baseball!
In Ninety Percent Mental, Bob Tewksbury shows readers a side of the game only he can provide, given his singular background as both a longtime MLB pitcher and a mental skills coach for two of the sport's most fabled franchises. Tewksbury explores the fascinating psychology behind baseball, such as how players use techniques of imagery, self-awareness, and strategic thinking to maximize performance, and how a pitcher's strategy changes throughout a game. With Tewksbury's esoteric knowledge as a thinking-fan's player and his expertise as a "baseball whisperer," this entertaining book is perfect for any fan who wants to see the game in a way he or she has never seen it before.
“Nobody I've come across in my almost 30 years in the game did more with his God-given talent than Tewks . . . This book is a must read for anyone who wants an inside look into the mental aspects of baseball.” —Joe Buck
