Baseball stretches


#1

Hi,

My friend coaches a rep baseball team that is 10-11 years of age. What stretches should his team be doing so the players don’t get injuried? All stretches are good to know about.

Thanks

There are a lot of stretches that can help. However, I suggest you also look at the yoga topic on here. I wrote a little bit about stretching.

In general I suggest you warm-up by doing dynamic stretches before playing and static stretch after playing. When considering a stretching routine, you should think about balance. If you do a stretch for the back of the leg, you need to find one for the front of the leg. Stretching is only a very small part of a much larger picture.
