Minnesota Baseball: Advice on how to develop a young player?
Dan Terres from Minnesota SWAT Baseball Club discussed how he approaches the development of a young athlete who would like to take his game to the next level in Minnesota baseball community. One of the major points he made was that practice is about quality, not quantity, and recovery is just as important as working out. Just reps dont make you great, lots of quality reps make you great.
Minnesota SWAT has become one of the top baseball programs in the state in a relatively short period of time. Dan Terres, the director of the program, joined us to talk baseball and how to develop young athletes.
