Baseball Tournament Preparation Tips: How to Prep for the Ball Games

Before the big game it is important to prepare your body and mind. Read here to learn how to get yourself in the zone before you step onto the field.

In the United States, about 3 million children play baseball, making it one of the fastest growing sports.

If you have a big tournament coming up, it can be stressful and nerve-wracking.

Before the baseball tournament, it is important to prepare your body and mind. Read here to learn how to get yourself in the zone before you step onto the field.

Verify that your Equipment is in Working Order

About a week or so before your big game, begin double checking all of the equipment that you will need for the game. A week may seem too early, but that week will go by quickly.

If your equipment is in need of repair or replacement, you'll have time to go out and buy some. Repairing, cleaning or in some cases replacing this equipment ahead of time will give you a chance to break it in, or verify the repairs before your game.

Practice

It's vital that all hitters attend BP to practice your batting beforehand. Better players will have a solid routine and talk to their coach about what they should be practicing. A typical batting routine includes:

  • The first round
    • This normally includes 8-10 swings attempting to hit the ball in different directions.
  • The second round
    • Situational hitting
    • Practicing different scenarios
  • The third round
    • Just try and hit the ball
  • The fourth round
    • Focus on the areas you think you struggle with

Rest

Rest before the big game is important. A few days before your game, start cutting back on how intensely you're training. The tournament will be exhausting enough and make up for all that work.

The night before, you shouldn't do any hard training or exercise. You can go for a light jog if you need to get out some stress and anxiety about it, but nothing too intense.

Instead, you should be making sure that you get plenty of sleep. When you're well rested, you have a better chance of performing better. Try to go to bed early and sleep as much as possible.

Eat Well

The next morning when you wake up, you should eat a breakfast that is loaded with carbs. This will give you the energy to get through your game.

Make sure you also pack some snacks and lunches for the game so that you can refuel as the day goes on. Snacks like granola bars are great for these events.

Stretch

Most teams should have some sort of warm-up or stretching routine; however, if you don't have one already, here are some tips to help get you started.

Once you get there, you should start stretching and warming up. Do a light jog, some stretches, or practice some batting, throwing, or catching. This will help minimize the possibility of injuries as well.

Most people underestimate how important warming up is, but stretching will loosen you up so that you can perform your best during the game.

Find a warm-up routine that you will do every single time so that every time you do it, your body starts to recognize that you're about to play a game.
