It seems that other ball games don’t have such special training, does it? Why MLB?
Baoshu replied: first of all, other professional sports also have their own training camp. But the form is slightly different from MLB spring training, and it is not necessary before the real season begins. I think MLB has formed a training camp in the form of spring training because baseball has a longer season and more team members than other sports, with more preparations for evaluating players and getting them back in shape. During spring training, pitchers should exercise their muscles and bones to adapt themselves to the long and hard season; the players should practice more throwing and adjust their rhythm of hitting and grasp the time of swing. Baseball is more about muscle memory. The long gap between the off-season and the season is likely to have an impact on the players’ performance on the field.
Net friend summer: what’s the difference between players’ diet during spring training and that during competition?
Baoshu replied: I don’t think it makes much difference. Because of the intensity of the competition, it is very important for the athletes to eat and nutrition every day. It’s very hard to play eight months of nine games for nearly three hours in a row. Players need a good weight management plan. But the most important thing is to have a healthy and balanced diet every day. At the same time, it’s important to replenish the water in time, because the weather will get hotter and hotter with the coming of summer.
