No other baseball book to date has been so well designed, so easy to use, and so committed to warming up. Baseball is a very unique game. It uses every body part, in every plane of motion, all in short bursts. You must throw, catch, run, change direction, slide, hit and react at a moment's notice. In order to do these things better, you must actively engage all your body's muscles in all planes of motion. By following the warm up routines in this book, you will not only be able to do these things, but you’ll be able to do them better.
