Fall baseball is not at the pace of summer and spring baseball, at least it should not be. Maybe a couple of games a week and a night of practice is all fall baseball should be. With that in mind, I like to use the fall for three areas of development. One, it is the time of year to use wood bats in games. Using wood bats is a great challenge for many youth ballplayers, but a valuable experience. Two, fall baseball is the time to add arm strength with a long-toss throwing program. Players' arms should be in shape from summer baseball, so they should be ready to do a 6-week arm development schedule. Three, the fall is a great time for players to practice, or play, in games at different positions then their normal positions.
All of these fall baseball plans will help the serious baseball player's development.
