Abstract

There appears to be an increasing interest among baseball coaches n the development of a flexibility program to improve hitting consistency. Through an analysis of the form used for hitting a baseball, fisher revealed that a full powered swing is dependent of the range of motion in the body’s joints and that a subsequent amount of force is lost when flexion in the hips is decreased. The identification of selected flexibility exercises related to the success of hitting and implementation into training programs would be of significant value to coaches and players alike. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a relationship existed between the use of selected flexibility exercises and hitting proficiency.
