"Muscle tension will hinder quickness in your swing, so it's important to be as relaxed as possible. If you made an error or struck out last time up, you have to put those things out of your mind; mental tension can translate into physical tension and compound the problem. Relaxing may be easier said than done, but it's an ability that all great hitters have." - Jim Rice
