About This Activity

The physical demands placed on baseball and softball players are unlike that of any other sport. The games basic skills require incredible amounts of power and speed that must be combined with balance and stability in order to perform them with precision. The athletic, core-based training style employed by Diamondawgs Conditioning will develop an athlete's strength while teaching them to stabilize their pelvis and core, maintain balance throughout dynamic movements, transfer power efficiently through the body, repeat mechanics with precision, move with greater efficiency and speed. Each training session will be led by head strength & conditioning coach Tyler Zaleski (BKIN, CSCS, NCCP Olympic lifting Level 1). Tyler has been working with Diamondawgs for the past 7 years and has helped develop baseball players from junior high to the college level. He continues to work with elite level hockey players at Crash Conditioning and has also spent some time working with the Calgary Stampeders. His experience with such a wider variety of athletes has helped Tyler develop and continue to work at a program that will maximize a baseball players athleticism and movement efficiency. The focus of our session during January and February will be to take the athlete’s strength and turn it into baseball-specific power. Exercise tempos will increase and movements will more closely approximate skills performed on the field. Workloads will be tapered to have athletes peak for their evaluations and Opening Day. An off-season strength program that builds balance, strength, power, and agility will improve: -Power at the plate -Bat control -Velocity on the mound -Ability to locate pitches -Range at all positions -Foot speed on defense -Speed on the base paths -Ability to stay healthy all season Small Group Training will Emphasize: -Low Coach to Player Ratio -1-on-1 Attention -Motivating Group Atmosphere -Movement-Based Athletic Style of Training
