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
On Monday, May 7, 2012 Miguel Tejada arrived in Sarasota to take part in a physical (which he passed) and workout for the Baltimore Orioles. Having impressed, he signed a minor league deal Tuesday and then went on to appear in an extended spring training game. While evaluating him over the next 10 days, the plan is to get him baseball ready with hopes of getting some more quality game speed ABs at AAA Norfolk and then if all goes well onto Baltimore.
