From high school to the Major Leagues, all baseball players struggle with competition, pressure, and their own personal challenges.

In Intangibles, you’ll find stories, instruction, and practical applications that teach players and coaches how to put forth their best mental games—portrayed through the eyes of those who have experienced those learning moments firsthand in their quests to become Major Leaguers.

Whether you hope to be a big league player someday, or whether you simply want to play your best game, this book is essential for all athletes who want to learn how to overcome fear, build confidence, and develop a mental framework for success.

Stories of real professionals that intrigue you as well as strategies to help you develop the mentality to be your best is at the core of what this book is about.

I've been blessed to play this game for a living for 18 years now. The process of developing the needed mindset to last that long is never ending. Working with Geoff personally and now reading "Intangibles" has assisted in that development.

I love this book for players, coaches and parents. Our sport is so competitive, talent alone won't get you to the top. Geoff helps his reader to understand that and build a mental skill set that will.
