These are:


  1. Ability to hit for average
  2. Ability to hit for power
  3. Ability to throw
  4. Ability to defend
  5. Ability to run


  1. Arm strength
  2. Ability to locate
  3. Movement on the ball
  4. Ability to throw a 2nd and 3rd pitch for a strike
  5. Mound presence, focus, control of running game

A baseball player’s ability to run is most often judged by his times from hometo first and his 60 yd dash. Although the application of a 60 yd dash to baseballspecific speed is questionable, it is important because coaches and scouts useit as a solid measurement of overall speed. Although each position has its unique demands, all baseball players mustimprove these essential basic motor abilities.
