Baseball is a sport that requires a very unique kind of fitness. There is much less emphasis on endurance than there is on explosive speed and very individual and articulate skill sets. As a hitter, gaining strength will improve overall bat speed which equates into balls getting out of the infield faster and traveling further. To be a good defender, you must be agile, quick, and possess good body control that will translate into more caught balls and the ability to field balls before they get into the gaps. In order to be a top of the rotation pitcher, you need have good balance, good hip mobility, and make sure your arm is properly cared for so you can stay healthy throughout the course of the season.
