- 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

Marlins' Sanchez tosses Gem!
Tonight (April 22, 2011) I was fortunate to be at the game as Anibal turned in an outstanding performance!! Just look at that intensity.
He took a no hitter into the 9th inning before giving up a broken bat, "seeing-eye" single to lead-off hitter Dexter Fowler.
Not only did Anibal toss a 1-hitter, he dropped down a suicide squeeze, made an incredible defensive play, lowered his ERA from 5.51 to 3.55, and set a new career high of 9Ks.
Every inning that went by I reflected about everything that went into our off-season training program; designed for night's like tonight. Designed to take his body well beyond 9 innings worth of work. Every 8000# truck pushes, versa-climber, tire sprints, ropes, functional field work went into his 123 pitch, 9 inning complete game shutout.
Strength, Power and Endurance. Tonight he had it all.
The strength & conditioning that the fans don't see in the offseason they saw tonight! Congrats Anibal!
Out Train The Game!
