Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams that take turns fielding and batting. The objective is to hit the ball into play and run around the four bases without getting “out”, making it around all four bases counts as a run.
If the batter hits the ball over the outfield fence this is called a home run and all plays on base run to the home plate and all runs are added up.
Baseball is separated into three main skills: batting, pitching and fielding. Baseball training for each skill is highly specific and many players specialise in a single skill. For all positions there needs to be a good baseline of cardiovascular fitness especially whilst fielding.
Batters usually have more upper body strength training to help hit the ball harder and further. After practice and games, it is important to supplement with a high-quality protein source, this will help maintain and develop lean muscle mass as well as speed up recovery.
