In baseball and softball, the “5 tools” refer to a player’s overall skill set and athletic abilities. These tools are:
Hitting for Average: The ability to consistently make contact with the ball and get on base.
Hitting for Power: The capacity to drive the ball with force, resulting in extra-base hits, including home runs.
Speed and Agility: Quickness and baserunning speed, allowing a player to steal bases, cover ground in the outfield, and take extra bases on hits.
Fielding Ability: A player’s skill in fielding ground balls, catching fly balls, and making accurate throws.
Throwing Ability: The ability to make strong and accurate throws, essential for outfielders and infielders alike.
Players who excel in all five tools are considered exceptionally well-rounded and valuable in the world of baseball and softball.
5T Training Sessions are geared for players 7/8-12 years old.
