Stamina. It’s a word that is always on the mind of dedicated baseball pitchers. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines stamina as “the bodily or mental capacity to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity.” Do you want to play deep into the game for your team? Do you want your hundredth pitch to be as strong as your first? It all comes down to stamina. Your focus, your velocity, your accuracy, and your power are connected to your stamina.
The position of the pitcher is unlike any other on the baseball field. It requires immense focus and concentration because it is the only position that is involved in every play that takes place on the field.
