Nutrition:

Instead of trying to stuff yourself three times a day, it is much more useful to space your meals out into smaller portions 6 meals/day and can prevent the storing of body fat. Certain supplements also help baseball related activities.

Supplements:

Protein: Protein molecules make up certain enzymes and hormones and serve as important regulators in your body. They help maintain your blood pressure, blood sugar level, and your metabolism. Most protein foods of animal origin such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk, contain all of the essential amino acids and are therefore called complete proteins.

Glutamine: According to Ronald Klatz, MD, President of the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in Chicago, "Glutamine promotes the assimilation of nutrients, regulates protein synthesis, stimulates growth-hormone production and enhances the immune system."

Creatine: Creatine is a natural constituent of meat, mainly found in red meat. Creatine is used for the resynthesis of ATP. ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is the "power" that drives muscular energetics.

Glucosamine & Chondroitin: Glucosamine is an aminomonosaccharide naturally occurring in the human body and is produced naturally in the body by chondrocytes in cartilage to help maintain and build healthy joint tissue. This can be very helpful late in the baseball season because all baseball players know how worn down our joints can get.

Multivitamin: For the human body to perform at its maximum potential, it must be fed a vast and complex array of vital nutrients.

ZMA: ZMA is a scientifically designed anabolic mineral formula. It contains Zinc Monomethionine Aspartate plus Magnesium Aspartate and vitamin B-6, and is an all-natural product that has been clinically proven to significantly increase anabolic hormone levels and muscle strength in trained athletes.
