3 Primary:  Bat  Baseball Secondary:  Glove  Home Plate  Cleats  Helmet  Batting Gloves

4  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=3 rd strike) *Ball=outside of strike zone *4 balls= batter allowed to advance to 1 st base *batter hit by pitch= allowed to advance to 1 st base

5  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

6  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

7  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.

8 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, pronator teres  Shoulders R and L- *Horizontal abduction of R- Deltoid middle fibers, deltoid posterior fibers, lattisimus dorsi, 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 carpi radialis longus, Extensor carpi radialis brevis, Extensor carpi ulnaris  Hand R and L flexion- Flexor digitorum superficialis, flexor digitorum profundus, flexor pollicis longus

9 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

10 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

11 Follow Through Stage Follow through stage is very similar to the movement stage Biceps

12 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.

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

14  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
