The physical skills that are required to be a baseball player are straightforward, improved alactic power; alactic capacity and aerobic capacity and training should consist of methods to improve these qualities (14). According to the law of specificity, which states that muscles must be used in similar patterns and ways that they are needed in order to make specific gains on the individual. It would make sense then that the methods used for conditioning baseball players should be similar to the demands of the sport, focusing on developing the anaerobic and alactic energy systems.

Every joint in the body has a specific function and is prone to certain levels of predictable dysfunction. As a result each joint has specific training needs. Injuries closely follow joint dysfunction and problems at one joint usually present themselves either upstream of downstream from the issue. Mobility is defined as the ability to produce a desired movement and stability is defined as the ability to resist and undesired movement.
