Product Description

Book Description

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.

What You Will Learn …

  • You will learn … many systems of success including the 5 P’s of Primetime Programs.
  • You will learn … playing for the present and how trying to win each pitch is broken down in great detail
  • You will learn … a cyclical process by which you can help ensure that you’re playing the game as a 1 Pitch Warrior.
  • You will learn … about measuring performance on skills and strategies that have meaning and that matter far more than just the basics such as  averages, RBIs, wins, etc.

Advanced Training Topics Include

  • B.A.S.E.2.,
  • A3P,
  • Quality At-Bats,
  • Quality Innings,
  • and others.
The last part of the book is dedicated to developing a vocabulary among your coaching staff and players so that you all use the same language in defining what it means to be a 1 Pitch Warrior. These terms can be discussed at practice or assigned as daily reading for your players before practice.

Who This is For …

Whether you are a veteran coach seeking that first state title or a high school player trying to make the varsity, there is something for everyone in the book.  The 1 Pitch Warrior Mentality is for anyone who wants to attack life and live in the moment.

Remember that the past is history, the future is a mystery; we call it the “present” because it is a gift.

Here’s to unwrapping the moments in life that you desire but have yet to experience. Good luck on your journey as a 1 Pitch Warrior!

Building 1PW… 5 Star Review
Posted by Unknown on 13th Dec 2013

I purchased this book just over a year ago and implemented a number of the concepts with my 11-year old son. Due to his results, I have since passed this book onto four other coaches and my son’s 11U team has already implemented BIG, QAB and BASE2 language into all of their winter drills. The team has already shown improvement over last season. The boys are slowing down and breathing in greatness and in our team hitting league, the boys are learning the concept of QAB and BASE2. Needless to say, 1PW is a way of life and we are looking forward to more positive results.

Must have for any coach 5 Star Review

This book is a must have for any baseball coach of any level. We have talked about many of these aspects in our own program. Coach Dehmer makes it these aspects of the game very easy to understand and to track to help improve in all aspects of the game.

great book that helps to incorporate focusing on the process of the game with the team. many people or books talk about it, but this book not only talks about this…it provides examples in the forms of practice plans and charts that can be used in teaching/encouraging this process. all of our coaches on staff now have a copy of the book.

1PW is a great resource. 4 Star Review

We used the 1PW system this season and like any new program it took time, but as the girls repeatedly heard the message and started seeing individuals with results the “team” bought into it and we had success as a team. Returning to the State Tournament and winning 2 of 3 games there. We will continue to build on the 1PW tools in our program.

Incredible book. Not just for baseball 5 Star Review

I am a former pro ball player and I know that if I had the knowledge from this book then I would be in the majors. Now I am using it for my teams and friends for many other areas other than baseball. I urge you to purchase this if you have the slightest interest you will not be disappointed
