equipment needed
Equipment Needed…


  • Bat
  • Baseball


  • Glove
  • Home Plate
  • Cleats
  • Helmet
  • Batting Gloves
general rules
General Rules…
  • Batter must stay within the batter’s box
  • There are 4 balls and 3 strikes allowed per batter

*Swing and a miss= strike

*Foul ball= strike (Can’t strike out if foul ball=3rd strike)

*Ball=outside of strike zone

*4 balls= batter allowed to advance to 1st base

*batter hit by pitch= allowed to advance to 1st base

  • If the batter steps out of the batter’s box, the pitcher must wait to pitch the ball
  • Foul balls (as mentioned previously)= count as strikes
constraints ctd
Constraints ctd…
  • Batter must maintain control of bat during and after swing
  • If ball is fair, batter must lay bat down nicely next to plate
  • If teammate is attempting to steal while you’re at bat, depending where attempt is taking place, allow catcher appropriate space to make a play
  • To successfully contact the ball with the bat and put into play, with an attempt of avoiding defenders and reaching base safely.
  • To give best attempt at not striking out.
  • To provide teammates and yourself opportunity to score as many runs as possible.


Stance Stage (Right Handed)- Isometric Contractions

  • Feet shoulder width apart, toes toward home plate
  • Knees slightly bent R and L flexion- Biceps femoris, Popliteus, Semimembranosus, Semitendinosus
  • Glenohumerus R and L flexion- Biceps brachii short and long head, brachialis, brachioradialis, pronatorteres
  • Shoulders R and L-

*Horizontal abduction of R- Deltoid middle fibers, deltoid posterior fibers, lattisimusdorsi, infraspinatus, teres minor

*horizontal adduction of L- Pectoralis major upper fibers, Pectoralis major lower fibers, coracobrachialis, deltoid anterior fibers

  • Wrist R and L Hyperextend- Extensor carpiradialislongus, Extensor carpiradialisbrevis, Extensor carpiulnaris
  • Hand R and L flexion- Flexor digitorumsuperficialis, flexor digitorumprofundus, flexor pollicislongus

Preparatory Stage

  • Everything similar to Stance Phase minus trunk movements in preparation
  • R arm abducting
  • L arm adducting
  • Both arm movements going away from pitcher
  • Body slightly leaning backwards in preparation for pitch

Movement Stage

  • External and Internal Oblique perform counterclockwise trunk rotation
  • R hip Extends while L hip Flexion
  • R and L knees Extension
  • R and L ankles invert and plantar flexion
  • Trunk rotation counterclockwise
  • R shoulder Flexion while L shoulder Extension
  • R and L elbows are Extension
  • R wrist Supination and L wrist Pronation
  • Starts in left Cervical Rotation and finishes in right Cervical Rotation

Follow Through Stage

Follow through stage is very similar to the movement stage



Recovery Stage

  • Most batters step out of the batters box following their swing.
  • They do not have a specific recovery stage besides getting themselves ready to go back in the preparatory stage.
  • If the batters make contact will place the bat on the ground and begin to run.

Most important Muscles to Strengthen and Stretch are: Hamstrings, Hips, Quadriceps, Abdominals, Chest, Forearms, and Shoulders

injury concerns
Injury Concerns…
  • Hit by a Pitch- Head Injuries (concussions and broken jaws)

Bruises or contusions

  • Pulled hamstrings often occur due to not staying ‘loose’
  • Shoulders injuries can occur due to unstable nature of shoulder joint
  • Patella Dislocation
