Pretty cool interview.
"The day I stop playing baseball will be the day that every single major league team doesn’t want me."
I love the description of the workout:
Standing near second base they would sprint way out into center field to pick up cones and then sprint back. They did this about 10 times each, and did footwork drills on a rope ladder between each sprint.
Then they ran to the center field wall, put on restrictive parachutes and sprinted along the warning track to the left field pole. They then crawled all the way back to the infield on all fours before taking turns jumping rope and doing up-downs.
They sprinted to center field and then did lunges all the way to the right field pole. Then they picked up medicine balls and threw them about 10 yards at a time until they had reached the left field pole again. Then they turned around and threw the medicine balls again until they had reached second base.
After some ‘jumping’ pushups and more drills, they ran back to the left field pole and picked up the chutes. They sprinted all the way from the left field pole to the right field pole on the warning track.
