Son went 2 for 2 in his first little league game with 2 clean singles. He also later scored 2 runs. I often over-use sports metaphors but the slow, steady grind of the baseball season requires good, consistent hitting. While home runs are fun and exciting, nothing beats a high on base percentage. I remember a coach advising to just put the ball in play. Don't worry about how hard you hit it, make the other team get you out.
Put the ball in play - still good advice for baseball and other things.
