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. Proper exercise technique ( to ensure effective & efficient training programs) and baseball related movement patterns are implemented to maximize on-field performance. Emphasis is placed on movement based training which integrates multiple muscle groups. This approach has a greater transfer to on-field performance and can minimize the incidence and risk of injury. 
 If a game is being played you can be sure Im watching it from home or from the stands. Many of my own workouts involve designing/creating out-of-the-box exercises & programs to enhance performance and movement unique to baseball

Week in the DR with Miguel Tejada

Just wanted to share and document a few pics while I was in the Domincan Republic (Republica Domincana)training Miguel Tejada. It was one of the best experiences in my baseball trainng career. I had one of those opportunities that just never forget. We trained hard, talked about baseball, family and life all the while he showed me where and how lived as a boy and now as a professional baseball player.

This is the field Miggy played on as a boy. He had a stadium and outfield wall built around it so kids would be safe.

and these are the reasons he built the stadium. The group of kids practicing when we arrived
