 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.
