Tryouts on March 21, but we’ve already got 30 guys meeting with me and the JV coach 4X a week on our turf lacrosse field (b/c we still have snow on the baseball field) doing form running, throwing/long toss, conditioning, fielding drills, bunts, etc.
I hope I don’t have to say this… but for all you players in cold-weather states, remember that there’s a lot of standing around in baseball. So wear sleeves (and sweat pants). I can’t tell you how many guys showed up on the first day of practice in shorts and light sleeves thinking it was warmer than it was (30*). I just don’t want to see any of you (or them) getting tight muscles and injured. Part of being successful is simply staying healthy!
