Baseball Athlete Position: Fielder Positions
Focus: Segmental Mobility and Rotation of the spine, shoulders and hips.
Outfielder positions are evenly spaced apart behind the infield, at different depths based on the situation. They're required to catch fly balls, as well as, field and return ground balls and line drives that make it through the infield.
They're also expected to back up the infielders during plays at base, which requires quick, agile movements. •
A common injury in fielders is shoulder injuries. In this post we feature the Pike Arch exercise as a means to introduce both scapular stability and reflexive core control, while at the same time working to improve elasticity in the hips and posterior chain.
