Terriers Reap What They Sow
Submitted By Mike Tevlin on Tuesday, May 8, 2018
Without a doubt this is my favourite time of year with Terriers Baseball. The boys are back on the field, they are breathing in fresh air, letting loose and seeing what all their hard work in the winter has done for their games. This is the time of year when the older players are thinking about what’s next and the younger players are thinking about how to become the older players. I was doing a workout (believe it or not) with Dr.

Carm Filice of The Performance Lab the other day when, coincidentally, Boots called him to tell him about the test results from a winter’s worth of SST training. I could tell that Boot’s was pretty excited when I heard comments from Carm like “best results ever” and “yup, that’s what we were expecting". So, when I finished sweating my butt off, I called Boots. He repeated what Carm said and added a couple of thoughts – “Mike, Carm’s right, these are the best results we’ve had since we began doing testing in conjunction with The Performance Lab”. When I pushed Boots a little more he said there were improvements across the board and that there was a clear results relationship between those players that did the minimum and those that worked out 3, 4, or 5 times per week.” Our hardest working pitchers have all either picked up velo or improved pitchability over the winter and the position players who put in the most effort were mashing the ball on the trip to Florida this spring. That’s damn clear evidence that you reap what you sow in this game. When I think about it, every Terrier I’ve known who has had success in The States was one of those guys that did the extra work. As Carm said to all of us last fall about US ballplayers, “they work harder than us south of the border and they’ve been doing it longer”. So congratulations Terrier players for a great job getting ready for the season. Those of you that went the extra mile – well done!! For the rest, keep at it, you’re doing great and you could probably do even better. And don’t forget that when you’re on the road, you need to stay fit. It’s pretty easy to ignore fitness and nutrition when you’re having fun playing but the payoff for keeping up can be huge. Wishing you all a great, fun, and memorable summer taking part in the greatest game in the world. If I was 40 years younger, I’d be headed to a tryout myself
