> Jimmy the facts I posted came straight out of Gene Colemans (strength and conditioning
coach for the Houston Astros) 52 week baseball training book. I literally wrote the exact
words out of the training manuel. If you want to disagree with that kind of experience than
be my guest.


You obviously took the words from that manuel out of context because I know for a fact
no big leaguer would ever train like that exclusively. Sorry, but I'm really good friends
with many Major League strength and conditioning coaches and I think you may have
misunderstood what you have read regarding baseball specific workouts.
