Of special interest to athletic trainers, topics such as different training regimens for in-season versus off-season workouts and tailoring throwing programs for relievers and starters are given particular attention.

Key Features:

- Covers how to get player ready to play and how to prevent injuries from occurring while playing
- Extensive coverage of training plans to prevent injuries and rehabilitation programs after injuries
- Authors are all the leading experts in the field
