As someone who grew up in sports, I have always heard stretching is the most important thing to do before engaging in any kind of physical activity. I could never touch my toes so I hated this concept. But after eight years of coaching, I have strung together a series of exercises that enable athletes to get their blood flowing and get ready for physical activity without embarrassing themselves by demonstrating their lack of flexibility. The following dynamic warm-up routine is performed before every game and practice by Lake Erie baseball. A special thanks to junior outfielder Zach Mosbarger for his assistance.
