Former Blue Jay has a perfect day

Every little league pitcher dreams of this kind of day.

Every minor league pitcher dreams of this kind of day.

And every major league pitcher dreams of this kind of day.

But only 20 pitchers in history have had this kind of … perfect day.

Yesterday, Philadelphia Phillies (and former Blue Jays) ace pitcher  Roy “Doc” Halladay had a perfect day.

The former Cy Young award winner won the game 1-0 by not allowing even one of the Florida Marlins hitters to reach base.  27 batters, 27 straight outs.

But do you really think that this is the first time Roy has done this?

I would bet that he has dreamed this type of perfect game many times.

I would bet that in his game preperation he visualizes getting every batter out.

And I would bet that this was a key to his success, not only last night, but throughout his career.

Because when you practice in your mind you are making mental tracks for your body to follow.

And since you are making mental tracks, you may as well make those tracks the best you can possibly make them.

Someone once said that practice makes perfect. But that isn’t true. It is perfect practice that makes perfection.

So what do you want to achieve? And are you mentally practicing a perfect outcome. If not, why not.

Congratulations Roy on your perfect game and thanks for the lessons that can help us achieve success in our future.
