Squeeze Play

How Do I Stay in The Game When Life Is Putting on The Squeeze?

Squeeze Play


There is a play in baseball that is unique.  It is the suicide squeeze play.  There is one out with a man on 3rd base.  The runner on third takes off running home as soon as the pitcher starts his wind up.  There is pressure on the defensive players but the person most under the squeeze is the batter.  He has to bunt the ball or the runner will be thrown out.  Everyone has been through a squeeze play.  Life is full of squeeze plays.  Those times of high intensity stress, pain, suffering, and difficulty.  It is a part of life.  Your squeeze play may be a struggling child, financial setbacks, a loss of your job, or marriage problems.  So the question today is how do I stay in the game when life is putting on the squeeze?
