Baseball has some unique requirements for a team sport. Players are required to perform intermittently over the course of a game. However, the time frame that elapses from start to finish will be several hours. In addition, many young athletes are expected to train and play within a matter of hours of each other. This demand, in conjunction with the fact that many of these athletes are trying to gain muscle at the same time, poses some difficult nutritional issues.
Furthermore, with a greater emphasis on keeping body fat levels low and power-to-weight ratio high, gone are the days where being an overweight baseballer is the norm. Therefore, we start with general training diet as the foundation and then move on to more specific aspects of the sport.
