Baseball is a spring and summer sport, right? Wrong! For dedicated players, baseball is a year-round sport. What some might consider “downtime,” the Fall, is actually an incredibly important time, because it encompasses the development part of a player’s cycle. Developing and practicing throughout the fall and into the winter prepares players who will later showcase their skills during the upcoming competitive and travel seasons.
In order to get on the radar of coaches and scouts during those all-important competitive moments, players have to dedicate themselves to working hard throughout the rest of the year, and especially in the fall. To professional players, fall is known to be a key development period, and they take full advantage of all the time they have to strengthen their skills. Amateur players can’t expect their own skills to truly deepen if they only begin practicing a month or so before games. Working on tweaking, improving and maintaining skills is a year-round job, with a bulk of that work happening during the fall season.
