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

Game #3 2012 World Series

Anibal Sanchez pitched the game of his life last night; Game 3 of the 2012 World Series.

Altho he and the Tigers didnt get the win, he pitched extremely well. Over 7 strong innings,  he threw 117 pitches that featured 8K's, 1BB. Great numbers!

It was an all 'round solid performance.  However he was on the receiving end of no run support.More importantly he's healthy!

As with each of our off-season training seasons, our goals have always been to enhance performance and reduce the incidence of injury. Game #3 of the 12012 World Series demonstrated that our goals are being accomplished.

Out train the game!

Game 2 of ALCS

Anibal Sanchez goes 7 strong, keeping Yankees offense off the board while striking out 7 and walking 3. All in his first ever LCS game and on the road in Yankee Stadium.

Off-season training combined with diligent in-season training programs contributes to maintaining health, strength and power of your ball player into the post-season.

Keep strong. Keep Training.

Out train the game

2012 ALDS

Anibal Sanchez takes the hill tonight in game 3 of the ALDS between Tigers and A's.  What a great nationally televised stage for him to showcase his talents in an all important free agency year.

All of our (his) hard work, over the past 3 years, will come to fruition as he enters free agency at season's end; seeking his first multi-year contract. 

Out Train the Game!
