Dynamic Warm Up
Getting Ready
Sports Medicine studies have now determined that dynamic warm up is superior to static stretching for reduction of injuries and increase in performance. Prior to each practice and each game, players should go through a dynamic warm up routine to increase the responsiveness of their muscles and loosen the joints. Never let your players pick up a ball and play catch, especially throwing hard, with out a warm up and then gradual increase in activity. Warm up drills can include:

High Knees, Butt Kicks, High Kicks, Lunge, Backwards Lunge, Shuffle, Cross Overs, Big Arm Swings, Arm Circles, Arms Over / Under, Hands Up / Hands Down

To make this easy on yourself, write all these drills on a baseball (your instruction list) and hand to a different player each time putting them in charge of warm up.
