Stuff You Should Read: 4/4/10

Written on April 4, 2010 at 4:00 pm, by Eric Cressey

I’m about to head out to go to Fenway Park for the season-opening Red Sox vs. Yankees game.  So, with the baseball season officially underway, I thought it’d be good to kick this week off with a collection of baseball-related recommended reading material.  Of course, you can certainly always find plenty of great stuff on the Baseball Content Page here at EricCressey.com.  That said, here are just a few personal favorite articles that I’ve written (it was tough to just pick a few, as I love writing about this stuff!):

Crossfit for Baseball

Developing Young Pitchers the Safe Way

Risk-Reward in Training Pitchers

Weighted Baseballs: Safe and Effective or Stupid and Dangerous?

And a few baseball books that I’d highly recommend:

License to Deal (great look at the sports agent/representation industry)




And some favorite baseball-related DVDs:

The 2009 Ultimate Pitching Coaches Bootcamp DVD Set

Optimal Shoulder Performance (just released last week, and only around at the introductory price for a bit longer)

    Thanks for the book suggestions. Finding a good baseball book that my boyfriend hasn’t read yet is always a challenge. We’re having a huge baseball crisis–he can’t watch the Twins because we live in Wisconsin, so the local channels only show the Brewers (boo hiss) but an MLB package won’t work b/c of the blackout. I will never understand why, with all this technology, nobody can figure a way around this.

    Anyway, finding a book he hasn’t read (the first one), along with ordering audio (which is luckily still available) took a bit of the sting out.
    Here’s one you *may* not have seen, written by one of my favorite college professors.

  • Avoid the most common deadlifting mistakes
  • 9 - minute instructional video
  • 3 part follow up series
