The basics of hitting, catching, throwing, fielding, and baserunning.
By age 7 or 8, young baseball players have a bit more coordination, and coaches can start to go beyond the basics of how to catch, throw, field, hit and run the bases. Game-like situations help young players think on their feet, and to communicate and collaborate with each other. Baseball is a team sport, after all.
We are using similar muscles that we used in the swing such as the hip flexors, hip rotators, rotator cuff musculature, deltoids, lats, and wrist pronators, pectoral muscles, quads, glutes, hamstrings, and the muscles responsible for flexion in your back.
A few great exercises to improve core strength include:- Planks.
Medicine ball rotations.
