Pre-Season Conditioning
In South Texas we are fortunate to have decent weather, thus allowing our league to hold open practices on Monday's, Wednesday's, & Friday's all year long. We have one rule on temperature, if it is less than 40 degrees, stay home. What about other leagues, do you have open practices throughout the year?

we hit every sunday as long as it was above 60 degrees(don't want bats to break,if possible),we do use the 52 ball to help the bats tho...we are starting to hit on sundays now regardless of temps as league will be starting back up soon.....i do a lot of tee work on my own,usually 100+ balls per session,also using the 16" balls for follow thru work.....i use a cage and open field,on the open field i go and throw the balls back that i hit....helps with the arm.....

There are a couple of indoor facilities up here in the Chicago area that have limited (games)leagues. We usually don't get started with BP as a team until late March early April. In the meantime, I work out at the health club "6" days a week doing a 22 machine/weight circut followed by a "30" minute cardio power walk each day. I swing a 42 oz. bat each night "8" sets of 25 reps while watching TV. Turning 69 this summer and will continue the above as long as my body hangs in there. Maybe some of all the above will actually reflect or carry over to the softball field someday???? I do know the above makes it easier for me to horse around my 850 pound Road King Harley.
