Using Performance Sleeves For Baseball
A performance sleeve for your arm and elbow will improve your performance of throwing actions such as pitching a baseball or throwing it from the outfield. For baseball fielders and pitchers, the ability to throw and pitch the ball efficiently and accurately is a major determinant of their performance. In fact, given the centrality of the pitcher’s performance to the team’s results, one can argue that the pitcher’s ability to pitch the ball consistently and efficiently is a major factor in the result of the game. Players should therefore give careful consideration to wearing performance sleeves for baseball games.
Performance sleeves will also improve proprioception along the arm and reduce the risk of injury. Proprioception is the ability of the limb to instinctively sense its position or orientation and the degree to which this poses risk of harm. By enhancing proprioception, therefore, the use of performance sleeves for baseball play is likely to benefit players by helping them to avoid injury.
Performance sleeves do not only help to improve accuracy , efficiency and safety. Sleeves with compression will help to promote fresh supplies of blood and oxygen to arm and elbow tissues. They also assist the removal of waste fluids from those tissues. By doing so, they will defer the onset of fatigue and keep the pitcher or fielder performing at a high level for longer.
The benefits of performance sleeves for baseball players are not, however, limited to pitchers and fielders. They will also help to defer fatigue and reduce the injury risk for batters. However, for batters, the use of compression tops such as those shown below will yield even greater benefits in terms of performance, proprioception and the ability to ward off muscle fatigue.
Players can also reduce the risk of injury by following an appropriately designed off season training program for baseball players.
