Author(s): Dr. Manu Sood
The researchers of this study aim to know about the role ofmental toughness and emotional maturityin performance of baseball players. The investigators had selected Sixty (N=60) male baseball players of 19 to 27 years of age to act as subjects. They were divided into three groups; (i.e., N1=20; District, N2=20; State and N3=20 National). The purposive sampling technique was used to select the subjects. To measure the level of Mental Toughness among subjects, Mental Toughness, constructed by Goldberg et al. (1998) was administered. To measure the level of Emotional Maturity among subjects, Emotional Maturity Scale constructed by Singh and Bhargava’s (1988) was administered. One way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was employed to find out the intra-group differences. For testing the hypotheses, the level of significance was set at 0.05. Summarizing from the above findings we can say that insignificant differences were found among male baseball players (District, State and National) on the sub-variables of Mental Toughness i.e., Reboundability, Ability to Handle Pressure, Concentration, Confidence, Motivation and Overall Mental Toughness. Conculdingly from the above findings that insignificant differences were present among male baseball players (District, State and National) on the sub-variables of Emotional Maturity i.e., Emotional Unstability, Emotional Regression, Social Maladjustment, Personality Disintegration, Lack of Independence and Emotional Maturity (Total).
