Each week EBP publishes a list of the top baseball articles from around the web. We’ll include a variety of articles on baseball coaching, skill training, performance enhancement, injury prevention, injury rehabilitation and more.
Basically, if the information is excellent and can help advance the game of baseball for players, parents, coaches, rehab specialists, and strength professions, we’ll help spread the word.
Think your article is worth including? We scan the web, but if you’d like to submit your article for consideration, please do so via The EBP Articles of the Week Submission Form.
