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

Tiger catches a Fish

Former Miami Marlin, Anibal Sanchez (SP) has been traded to the American League Central leading Detroit Tigers. What a turn of events for Anibal - going from a team most likely not to see the postseason to a team in postseason contention.








Looking forward to watching him get after the AL.

Out train the game!

Miguel Tejada Free Agent

After impressing during an extended spring training "look" and then showing that he was more than capable of playing on a regular basis with AAA Norfolk Tides (38 years old) Miguel Tejada, knowing there was little roster room with the parent club (Baltimore Orioles), asked for and was granted his release on June 25, 2012.

This in no way means he is done. His love and respect for the game of baseball drives his passion & determination...to PLAY baseball. Today, we once again started up our in-gym and on-field training program, and will continue to do so in hopes that a team will need a MVP, All-Star, veteran presence.
