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

Youth Camp

This past Sunday, 2/6/11, Cincinnati Reds C, Ramon Hernandez organized a free clinic to some young ball players. He recruited help from San Francisco GIants SS, Miguel Tejada, and Florida Marlins SP, Anibal Sanchez. In addition Ramon asked me if I would come out to implement the pre-camp warm up and some SAQ drills. I was honored. What alot of fun. Here's a couple of pics.

This past week, I have had the opportunity to work with some ballplayers on various ball fields...and after all these years, I still feel the most alive when Im in between the white lines.

go hard in the yard.
