88 games in a row the Martensdale-St. Mary’s Blue Devils baseball team in Iowa won. “The Streak” as it came to be called, covered the two summers of Iowa high school baseball and into a third, culminating 3 times with the 1A State Championship at Principal Park in Des Moines.
When the season ended in July 2011, The Streak was the existing National High School Record for consecutive wins at 87. That was passed early in the spring of 2012 in New England by the Portsmouth, NH team resetting the record to 89 wins. The Blue Devils opened the 2012 season simply looking to win 1 pitch at a time, with a goal not of streaks, but, of defending their state championship. The team motto/mission in 2012 – “All we see is three!”
"Coach, Wanted to give you an update. We have put in all of your stuff...we just went for it and have implemented most everything. We are 7-7 right now after an 0-4 start. We start 3 freshman and 3 sophomores and I really feel that things are turning the corner here. Players seem to be buying in to all aspects of the program and seem rejuvenated by the new things we have implemented."
"Justin Dehmer spoke at the 41st annual Be the Best You Are Baseball Clinic in Cherry Hill NJ this past January, and he did an outstanding job. He was the leading vote-getter for the Baseball Speaker Hall of Fame in 2014. The coaches loved his presentations. I will have him back in the future.:
"Coach Dehmer came and down and worked with our baseball and softball programs and it was tremendous! He not only taught our players the mental skills to become a better baseball player, but more importantly, skills that will help them be successful in the game of life! He was highly organized, highly interactive and had the players totally engaged in what he was doing. I highly recommend Coach Dehmer and his 1PitchWarrior program to any high school or college program looking to take their game to the next level. You won’t be disappointed! "
"Justin, I want thank you for the great work you do for coaches everywhere. Your product is the best out there. I appreciate the fact that you are willing to share and to help coaches grow. Your approach and professionalism is the best. As an Activities Director we talk the importance of learning from peers and professionally growing every day and every year. You give that to every coach nationwide. You are a model for what every school deserves. I look forward to viewing and improving through the updated 2.0 program. You are making us not only better players, but better people!!!"
"Let me personally thank you for the contents of the 1 Pitch Warrior system that you have developed... I got complete satisfaction with the entire 1PW package. It has done as much for my away from baseball as it has for my boys with baseball. I can't wait to see how they respond this year on the field having these additional tools in their toolbox."
1 Pitch Warrior – Guide to Mental Toughness is the key to unlocking your full potential as a player or a coach. Not only do the things provided in this book allow you to find your true potential on the field, but I am confident that they will enrich your life off the field as well.
Being a 1 Pitch Warrior is about much more than winning on the baseball field, it is about winning the day, making the most out opportunities that come your way good or bad.It’s about learning how to respond to adversity and handle anything that baseball or life has to throw at you.
