Many athletes in high school participate in more than one sport. Jumping from one sport to another can lead to improper throwing or swing mechanics because their body has not been conditioned to taking hundreds of swings or long toss for pitchers.
We want to engage our athletes in a rigorous training program, but also want to refine the sport specific movements like starting a throwing program in November, soft toss/tee work in December, and footwork/defensive focus in January. Mixing these baseball specific movements along with weight and mobility training will help keep athletes healthy through out the length of the season.
Good luck this year! Train hard and stay healthy! "Get better everyday!"
