Pulling the trigger (55)

I think Peter Van Grafailand was the nicest kid I coached. That’s saying a lot, but Peter is a “sweetheart”. And he did struggle. It’s tough to watch the good kids take a pounding. I finally figured out how to help Pete.

He didn’t know “how hard” to hit it when. Bad judgment led to over hitting, taking unnecessary chances, and “pulling his trigger to quick”. Once we taught PVG how to keep it in play patiently until he got “his shot” he got better fast. I was delighted. Pete was characteristically grateful. “Don’t pull your trigger until you have your shot”, PVG.
