Baseball performance is measured by FIVE TOOLS. These tools are the gold standard for evaluating a player and are based on a scale from 2 to 8; with 5 being average. Not in any particular order the five tools are identified as:
1) Hitting for Average
2) Hitting for Power
3) Speed; offensively and defensively
4) Arm strength
5) Defensive/Fielding skills

- Five Tool Baseball Performance Training (FTBPT) is dedicated to sharing its knowledge, ideas and opinions on baseball performance training based upon field tested experiences as player, coach and baseball strength & conditioning coach.
