Baseball-Specific Hydration-Strategies

 Baseball performance is directly affected by what & when baseball players drink.

  In-game hydration-strategy required to maintain energy for baseball-performance.

  Without properly timed fluids, baseball-performance will suffer.

  Playing in dehydrated-state causes premature fatigue & limits post-game recovery.


During Game

  Do not wait until thirsty to drink. Thirst is unreliable indicator of hydration-status.

  Consume at least 8-12 oz. between innings.

  Consume 15g of carbohydrates per 8-oz fluid.

  Maintain electrolyte balance by consuming 100-200g per 8-oz fluid.

  Alternate between water & sports-drinks.

  Avoid coffee, tea, & caffeinated sodas, which cause dehydration.
