What's Great About Baseball?

On a basic level, here are some reasons why baseball is a great workout: 

Builds strong arms: Baseball players can quickly build upper body strength with swinging, throwing, and catching. 

Builds strong legs: Players can engage thier glute, hamstring, and calf muscles during a baseball game. In baseball you must run from base to base along with short periods of rest between each hit.

Increases Mental Focus and Concentration: Baseball can be great for mental focus and concentration because players often need to make split second decisions to strategize during game play.

Hand-Eye Coordination: Batting and pitching the ball requires a tremendous amount of hand eye coordination

Source of Sunshine: Since baseball is mostly played outdoors, players are often exposed to sunlight, which is a great natural source of vitamin D. Vitamin D allows the body to be able to absorb and metabolize calcium and phosphorus.

Stress Reliever: Baseball is a healthy way to help alleviate stress and rid the mind of everyday distractions.

Burns Calories: Basic parts of the game, like swinging, running, catching, as well as walking to the dugout may amp up your metabolism and burn calories.
