It is difficult to change and have the time to make major baseball fundamentals changes during the season. Now that the season has ended or the pace has slowed for most youth ballplayers, the time is best for making the muscle memory adjustments to improve and avoid this past year’s deficiencies. Players are still in baseball shape so any extra swing, throw or field practice should not put players in danger of injury. Players should evaluate last season to decide what big adjustments may be necessary and check with an experienced coach to find out how to go about them. A month or two of practice before taking time off this winter will make the changes to one’s baseball fundamentals easier at the start of next season’s baseball workouts.
