On 7 December 2006 St Petersburg Times reported:
Former baseball major league player says Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation technique can help athletes improve their game.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of culture.
Former major league player Buddy Biancalana, who was a shortstop with the Kansas City Royals, starting practising Transcendental Meditation when he needed to adapt to the many changes that occurred after his career in baseball ended.
He said that other professional athletes had found success with the Transcendental Meditation technique, which they use as part of their 'tool box' to help them adapt to any situation.
The St Petersburg Times reported that 'It is what many athletes call being in the zone—when the game slows down and someone can think clearly in a high-pressure situation.'
The St Petersburg Times quoted Biancalana as saying, 'You settle the mind and consequently you have better mechanics and better productivity.'
Biancalana explained to the St Petersburg Times how he found Transcendental Meditation helps in the world of baseball. 'Take two hitters. One hits .350 and the other .250. They are on the same team, which happens a lot in Major League Baseball. Do you really think the guy who is hitting .250 knows as much as the .350 hitter? Of course.
'He is just not as productive so there must be something on a much more subtle level,' the St. Petersburg Times reported.
Biancalana has found the Transcendental Meditation technique so useful that he recommends it to other athletes in 'mind-body' baseball workshops he gives around the United States.
