Off-Season training for baseball has become a much bigger endeavor than it used to be. I have always contended that athletes are a special population and need to be trained as such. Baseball players and specifically pitchers are even more of a special pop and need quality, well thought out training that is based on individualized assessments. More so, the coach or trainer needs to be aware of everything that the player, in this case the pitcher is doing throughout the entire year.
Many baseball players are playing only baseball and some pitchers are throwing year-round. While this can be a debated among coaches, trainers, parents, docs, PTs and a host of other experts, to whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, the reality is many guys are playing year-round so it is better to embrace it and help make sure it is done correctly and these guys are strong, safe and prepared for the entire year!
