Winter is upon us. With snow storms pushing through Midwest and the bone chilling cold that comes with it, we all have dreams of spring, warm weather and the dawn of a new season. It is all too easy to take the off-season off, eat way too much food during the holidays and just mail it in. However, this horrible baseball-less time of year is a crucial time of year for all of us and the key to a big upcoming season. Time to rise and grind.
Winter cold drives us inside, and insane, but presents an opportunity for improvement for every player. This is the time of year to push yourself. Time to gain muscle and endurance in the gym. Talk to your coaches and teammates about parts of your game to improve and find a trainer who can work on those weaknesses and turn them into strengths. Make yourself and your team better. You won't regret the work when games start.

Grind season is the time to tinker with your swing. This is your opportunity to make the necessary adjustments and changes that will lead to success when the weather breaks. Get your tee work in, soft toss and improve with every swing. Cage bombs are fun, but game bombs are better and the swing and strength you need is built in the off-season.
Hit the gym, hit the cages, and get better this winter so you can BE better, come spring. When games start, all that work will pay off. Grind this winter, take daddy hacks this season.
