The ACE Method

The fundamental core values of ACE Baseball are ATTITUDE, COMMITMENT and EFFORT. These three things lie within the scope of an individual's control and if applied fully, can help a player realize and maximize their God-given potential.

The ACE Method has been developed and tested over the last 20 years at the Major League level down to Little League. This ideology links the body and mind by acknowledging strengths and weaknesses, and then taking personal responsibility for both. Athletics are physical to be sure, but a solid mental foundation is absolutely essential in order to become the best.

ATTITUDE - This is and always will be the foundation of any experience. A positive attitude generates excitement, a willingness to learn and, more often than not, success. Everything in life is colored through one's outlook and therefore is dependent on the initial attitude taken towards confronting a task or achieving a goal.

COMMITMENT - Success is determined by long-term commitment to improvement. Life is not easy or fair. Those few that are willing to stay the course, give themselves the opportunity to see their true potential. Commitment is a decision that must occur daily. It requires mental fortitude and patience. The process of learning or improving a skill set is exactly that - a process. A true commitment allows the journey to become the reward.

EFFORT - This is the physical outpouring of attitude and commitment. Effort can be focused or wasted, and is entirely dependent upon the first two values for its worth. With positive, concentrated and committed effort, success can not only be achieved, it can be maintained.

This method is a way to live life, not just play baseball. It translates to every obstacle and to all arenas.
