  • “So, what I’ve learned over 15 years is what’s the perfect routine for me, so that when I hit that mound at game time, mentally, emotionally, from a psychological standpoint, from a biology standpoint, I could get myself into the state of flow, total focus, total concentration, so that I could perform at a peak level that night.” – Todd Stottlemyre
