Even during the off-season, an NCAA Baseball player is never far from his glove. Most college baseball players are very particular about their gloves, having up to five that they use on a regular basis. Some are designated game gloves, some are practice gloves and some are backups in either category. With the competitive nature of the college baseball scene, players can’t afford to lose any competitive advantage, even if it’s only a piece of equipment. During the off-season, players stretch, condition and rotate their gloves to ensure maximum play during the season.
With the 2013 College World Series on the books, serious NCAA Division I Baseball teams are likely already beginning training for the 2014 College World Series! While it is arguable that these young men have worked incredibly hard and deserve a break, it is also true that the best teams and coaches know that the offseason is invaluable to creating a great team. So how do collegiate baseball players prepare for the next year during the off season?
The first item on any athlete’s to-do list during off-season is to maintain good eating habits. Food is the building block for health and strength so players ensure they have the correct foundation on which they build skill. Next college baseball players need to carve out time each day for road work. Since speed is crucial in baseball, running daily for speed is a must during the off-season. Strength conditioning is also a must. Bigger muscles throw harder, catch better and run faster. Finally, players should practice core skills such as throwing, catching and hitting on a regular basis to keep that muscle memory in check during the off season. Be sure to grab your CWS tickets to see all of this hard work during the off season pay off during the 2014 College World Series.
