I’ve been playing baseball and pitching for nearly two decades (with some hiatuses). About two years ago I started playing recreational indoor soccer and have been utterly impressed with the effect it has had on my pitching. The full speed sprints and ball handling (footwork) in the weekly games have noticeably increased my lower body strength.
If anyone is looking for a great way to improve your pitching performance and add flavor to your off season work outs, I highly suggest looking for a local indoor soccer league.
Anyone else out there do the same?
