Krush Performance: How Baseball Is Leading Sport In Athlete Development


The MLB All-Star break marks the midpoint of the most grueling schedule in all of sport.

As the very best players at every level of the Game took to the field to compete in the Commissioners Cup, the Futures Game, the Home Run Derby and the All-Star game itself, we wanted to take a step back and reflect on not only the crazy first half of the 2019 MLB season but baseball as a whole.

Baseball, steeped in tradition and classically very slow to adapt and change is now proving to be a sport leader in a number of areas.

Baseball is:

  • Most certainly The Undisputed leader in on-line presence! No other sport comes close.
  • Analytics and numbers. No other sport comes close.
  • Trending to be a leader in player development – the minor league system sets this up nicely and the baseball world is now gaining momentum in this area.
  • Participation: while MLB fan attendance is down there is growing interest in the game globally.

This week on Krush Performance we look at Major League Baseball’s mid-season numbers, consider the second half and we’ll talk player development and injury prevention.
