This is going to be fun. Baseball and life rolled together in one place. What is it that you seek? This is for my friends, family, young athletes and the parents that raise them. Just some sports thoughts and takes from a former pro baseball player. I don’t have all the answers but I have some things that could help for the journey.

Fred and I had an opportunity to get together and talk about the San Francisco 49ers and the NFL Playoffs that l start this weekend. Coach Harv @seek1stsports~The Seeklot Podcast | Fred Towles @mrtowles~Towles Talk Podcast
When it comes to who you will become as a hitter, as a ball player, as a person. It requires effort from you along with the words and guidance of others. Just here to plant some more seeds. Keep it locked to The Seeklot

Another dive into the vast topic of mindset. I enjoy digging into the process and exploring what makes each of us “go” throughout life. This includes on the field as well as day to day life. I’ll say it again, mindset matters.
Our Best Speed 13u Hornets experienced a little bit of everything on the baseball field this weekend. This is inspired by them and those I've watched play the last couple of years. Whenever you're ready, there is more this game has to offer you, just as life does.
It may be naive to think so, but I don't know anyone else that digs into the process and mindset of hitting than I do. I'm sure many feel this way, and I think it's healthy. It just means that there are others helping these young men get closer to their full potential. In the end its all about them anyways. Those that want to put it the work and time will be rewarded. Those with other interests will spend more time doing the things that interest them and succeed in those areas. I'm here for those that want to dig and those that are here short term. Baseball will end for us all at some point, the actual playing that is. What you gather, share for those that are coming after you. I'm here for that.
Had a chance to track down Aj Jackson for a conversation on wasting at bats as a hitter in the game of baseball. Aj was coming into Sac State as a freshman when I was leaving as a junior. He is a key part of me being back involved with the game. Enjoy.
Another trip to the Facility to watch the process take place with some young men prepping for college, all levels. I always start to dig into my notebook. It's a bit dusty but there are some good things in it for the next generation. I'm asking one simple thing, what's under your hood? What are your thoughts in moments of success and failure. Think about it, it's useful for your journey.
Clinic today at Best Speed Baseball. 6488 Florin Perkins Rd, Sac, Ca. Quick catchup since last episode with Kevin Forbes. Seek1st vs Towles coming soon. And to our young men, do you keep a book? Are you still digging🤔
Part of my passion in giving back to the youth playing this game is sharing my experience and the experience from others that have played with them. I had the opportunity to speak with a good friend of mine Kevin Forbes about his experience as a player and coach today. He speaks on many of the things we touch on often with our young players that center around being able to handle what this game brings your way. Mentally, one has to be able to deal with failure on a consistent basis and be able to bounce back. Also, you once again hear how important school and the grind is if you want to succeed in this game. I'm sure our young men will benefit from hearing our conversation. You can follow Kevin on Facebook and also Instagram at @forbizzle12
Was thinking about the World Series and thought of something for our young ball players. What are you doing with your ab’s? Just swinging or taking inventory. Hopefully you’re taking inventory, maybe you don’t know how. If you want to, you know where to find me.
The NL West and NL Central are still undecided after 162 regular season games. The Dodgers and Rockies will face another to decide the National League West and the Cubs and Brewers face off to decide the National League Central. It was a long weekend baseball for me but I don't tire of baseball.
Another ride home from a productive day with these young men. Week 2 of homeschooling my daughter then leaving for a field or facility feels good. It feels especially good for a kid that wanted to be a high school English teacher and baseball coach. There is much to get to in sports and I hope too soon. Hope your Friday was great.
Aj and I talk through our thought processes for late game at bats. This will he the first of many talks like this. Feel free to call in and share some of your thoughts and approach. It's easy to do from the anchor app with the call-in function. Thanks for taking the time Aj.
Rigz and I had some time to discuss his second project, The Masterpeace. We spoke on how it came about and started right at the seven year break between projects. The project released seven years ago was New York Renaissance. Rigz enjoys the process of making beats and music but also has other interests. Listen to the interview and support by copping the album on bandcamp at rigz.info
Fred and I javent caught up somce the NBA Finals so discussed it briefly along with some MLB (because there will always be baseball with Coach Harv) and some quick NFL. Let us know your thoughts. Hit us on @chhtodaysports

Every NBA Playoff series is at the point of elimination. Fred and I spoke about the current series and some of what we see happening going forward heading into the Eastern and Western Conference Finals. Follow us on social media @seek1stsports and @mrtowles in Twitter and Instagram.
AJ (Aurelio Jackson) and I met at Sac State over 20 years ago. He is part owner of Family First Home Mortgage. He discusses his mindset on the industry and how he approaches it. As you listen to him speak about baseball you will understand why I can’t wait until he comes back out. The book we discussed was The Go Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. ffhomeloans.com
How was your opening day? Mine was great. I was able to tune in to most of the games and I thought I’d share some of my takeaways and thoughts for opening day as well as some about the upcoming MLB season
My son ran into the room excited to tell me about the NBA standings and playoff picture so I put him on a quick pause and pressed record. I had no idea he knew it like this. I didn’t think this was the sort of thing one could pass on. I only get to catch some sports news but I have a great team and my son always has tidbits of info. Apparently he pays quite a bit of attention.
Met my man @7thfromadam through the Grow The Heck Up telegram group and we have been connected for a couple years not being face to face and I believe this is part of what life is all about. Connecting with people, in the end we are all similar. Just because we haven’t all travelled the same paths doesn’t mean we can understand another on some level. This call in was a blessing to me, so I shared it. Love you Larry
