- 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

New Highs in September '11
When the 162 game season begins taking it's toll on players, Anibal Sanchez is still in mid-season form. While tossing a 1-hitter vs. the pirates last night, Sanchez recorded his 3rd complete game and 2nd shutout of the 2011 season-both are season career highs.
I couldn't be more convinced about the structure of our off season training and conditioning programs. As I've said time and time again, "in season performance happens in the off-season".
Go hard in yard.
