Fueling and Hydrating Before Baseball Practice and Games
Since nutrition plays an important role in sports performance, it’s important to start practice and games well- hydrated and somehwat fueled. The pre-training or pre-game meal will depend on how much time you have leading up to performance. As a general rule, if you have more time, you can consume larger, slower digesting meals. If you have less time, meals and snacks should be fast digesting and smaller in nature.
As with any sport, proper fueling and hydration practices are important for optimal performance. Players should be consuming a well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet every day, with additional fuel before, during and after games.
