MENTALBALL

BEAT YOUR INVISIBLE OPPONENT AT ITS OWN GAME

Forewords by Steve Blass and Shawn Green. Mentalball is available at www.sportsmaker.com for $19.95.

Mentalball is the brainchild of Dr. Richard Crowley. Mentalball is about beating your "invisible opponent" that disconnects you from your mechanics and confidence. It is the only proven and documented approach in baseball to reconnect you to your previous best mechanics. Mentalball is a revolutionary technique that identifies and solves your perplexing struggles, whether they are mechanical or mental. It allows you to play consistently, confidently and have fun again.

Diamondbacks' Shawn Green is a definite believer in Mentalball: "I can honestly say that Richard's techniques have been very helpful to me, and I will continue to work through slumps and injuries with his help."
