Say goodbye to those costly private hitting and pitching lessons. From the coach who helped mold Carl Crawford and Evan Longoria into MLB superstars comes a baseball-specific developmental program for high school ballplayers searching for a big-league performance advantage.
Kevin Barr, strength and conditioning coordinator for the Tampa Bay Rays, created The Baseball Resource, aptly known as TheBBR, to help players safely and effectively improve their baseball performance with the same methods Barr employed with Longoria, Crawford and countless other major leaguers.
According to Barr, no other website or instructional DVD offers the same level of comprehensive, baseball-specific development and injury prevention program as TheBBR. He says, “This unique knowledge, as well as my personal, long-lasting relationships with players at the big-league level, will allow all amateur players to safely improve their baseball performance and allow them to achieve their goal of obtaining a college scholarship.”
Says Longoria, “KB has a lot of great philosophies that he believes in, and it’s also really specific to what players like. He understands baseball sport-specific fitness, and he’s able to help in all aspects of the game.”
With TheBBR, players have direct, unlimited access to hundreds of programs, including:
- Baseball-specific injury prevention
- Warm-up and flexibility training
- Throwing-arm care
- Baseball-specific strength development
- Speed and agility development
- Power development
- Baseball-specific conditioning
- Performance nutrition, hydration and recovery
- Bodyweight management programs
