In and Out Baseball Pregame - Open Up Some Eyes, Infielders!

Someone is always watching

As the game of baseball has progressed, so has the way in which coaches get the most out of their in and out baseball pregame. The purpose of the in and out prior to the game is for the defense to look sharp, professional and enthusiastic as the team makes final preparations for what each player hopes will be high quality performance. Additionally - and maybe even more important as players get older and competition becomes tougher - the primary objective then becomes more of an opportunity to show off the “tools” each player has in their tool box. That means showing off their arm strength and fielding ability to professional scouts, college recruiters, coaches and the opposition.  

One of the most awe-inspiring features of any in and out baseball pregame is watching fluid, sharp and crisp throws being made effortlessly around the infield with extreme pop and accuracy. In baseball, there is truly nothing more stimulating than witnessing perfect throws on line, with carry, promoting a smooth transition from the catch phase to the throw phase, as the ball moves efficiently around the infield. The impact of a brisk, high energy in and out can send riveting meaning to the opposition prior to any game.
