When we hear about the Yankees and Red Sox, it usually floods us with tones of excitement. They are the heroes who have made history in the world of baseball. We wish to take a swing or field or take a home run like them. Just watching them on the screen makes us want to jump on our seat and pretend like we are on the field right there with them. That’s the magic of baseball.
How to train yourself:
Certain times we are not fortunate enough to have coaches at school to train us or we can simply not afford the expense of getting our own personal trainer. That shouldn’t worry us at all. There are ways in which we can train ourselves right at home. Worry not; I’m not going to talk about purchasing expensive equipment or gadgets to make you a champion. A few little tips that I’ll share with you will sharpen the skills you need to play baseball.
Here are a few tricks:
Take a swing – batting is perhaps the most important thing about baseball. Without hitting the ball, there is no moving forward. So take a bat which is basically much heavier than the regular ones. Swing that bat several times in a day, maybe 200 times to get your hand muscles and your whole body coordination going. When you are used to the heavy bat, the regular bat will be an easy task. The “http://www.mdfallbaseball.com/practice-drills” has great tips on how to improve your batting skills.
Asking yourself how you would do that? Well, it is not that complicated as you think. Take a ball and bounce it on the wall and try to catch it. This will improve the kinds of balls you can catch. Also try to vary it by bouncing the balls at different points so that you can expose yourself to the different angles the balls can come at you. if you have become a pro bouncing on the side walls, try with the ceiling. Practice this for an hour and increase as you get experienced.
In baseball you need great skills when it comes to throwing the ball. Long and short throws should be made accurately so that they reach the target. Thus you could put a bucket and try to aim the ball right into the bucket. Vary the distance at which you keep the bucket. Don’t make it easy for yourself. Keep challenging yourself each and every time.
one more thing that is highly important is the coordination of your eyes and hands. Try to engage yourself in activities that will enhance the coordination. For instance, take a stick and try to balance it on your finger. You could also try taking the bat and try to hit the ball for short and long distances continuously.
Advantages of practicing yourself:
Practicing on your own can save a lot of costs that you may incur by paying your coach and investing in equipments. You will do it all on your own.
you may not have to go somewhere for training. Also it will not be required to have a fixed time for training. You can do it in your own space and time
Know your weakness well:
when you train on your own, you are well aware of your weaknesses and can concentrate on them further
Hope this has motivated you enough to boost your baseball skills on your own!
