Heart rate under 80 wins 🧊


If you can’t stabilize, that’s our biggest liability


Proper big toe dorsiflexion is vital for movement efficiency. There is a glute and big toe connection when it comes to proper gait and in turn dynamic athletic movement


Factoring in natural personal motor preferences are vital to each athlete with the “standards” we know we need to incorporate.


Eccentric & isometric feel for back internal hip rotation for hitting. Create the tornado 💥💫


Energy over emotion GET ICED 🧊🧊


Overload the cognitive/visual system provides enhanced vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) as well as decision making habits.

The VOR has a critical role of keeping the eyes still during head and body motion. also sends a signal down to the postural muscles of the trunk/arms/legs, which is crucial for maintaining balance and optimal visual acuity


Simple, low-load exercise produces profound muscle “burn” comparable to intense anaerobic training.

This strong fatigue triggers a natural, robust, hormonal cascade, which in turn produces hypertrophy and strength gains on par with heavy exercise or traditional weight lifting.

The hormones circulating in the blood stream benefit all areas of the body that were working, not just the restricted limb(s) creating a “Systemic Response.”

Starts and ends in your 🦶🏻🏀 Fix your ankle/feet engagement with the ground and many times movement patterns will self organize. This exercise also includes
these 3 aspects…

1)the three sensory systems involved in modulating postural control: visual system, vestibular, somatic sensory system.
2)Vestibular: provides the brain info based on motion, body position and spatial awareness.
3)VOR: vestibular ocular reflex thru eye movement as it stabilizes gaze thru counter movement of the head.

Breaking down GRF in the swing. Use objective data vs subjective this gives us a deeper look into the movement profile .


Accommodation how well you can see an object as it moves closer and further from you. Tracking abilities are vital.

Hip flexors: iliacus, psoas major and the rectus femoris. Exxentric


Having too much side bend at contact creates havoc not only a visual system but also can create issues with barrel path integrity & proper posterior tilt of the pelvis to transition kinetic energy from the pelvis to the torso


Big toe is a major impact on how well we move.


(vestibule ocular reflex ) has a big impact at how well a hitter can visually process during a dynamic movement. How still the eyes can be when the head and body is in motion.


Even the pros understand the importance of Getting Iced 🧊🧊, so you can prime your hard earned habits to be at their best without thoughts🧠 getting in the way. A Heart rate below 85bpm WINS in the box. Miami Marlins


Velocity base training allows the coach to see objective data on the intensity of a given movement. 3 metrics: peak velocity/mean power/ mean propulsive velocity. Know Your numbers

Welcome to the ICED 🧊family Marlins MILB Player David Martinez

GET ICED (inhale confidence exhale doubt) & prime yourself to play with habits and NOT thoughts as we prime the reticular activating system of the brain. (RAS)


Guys that don’t transfer the energy toward the front side efficiently this drill does the magic for me. To leverage the energy we give the coaching cue to engage the posterior chain of the front foot (heel).

Our Story

At Think Outside The Diamond Sports Performance (TOTDSP) we train adults and athletes from many different sports but specialize in baseball and softball skill set instruction. Our mission is to provide the finest performance systems to effectively help our clients achieve their goals. We have worked with many clients from all different sports including soccer, basketball, swimming, tennis, football, volleyball, Irish Dancing and more! We evaluate the majority of our clients before we begin training with the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) as well as additional assessments as we feel needed. This screen evaluates the “pure movements” of our clients so if needed we can fix any movement problems that would prevent them from getting the complete value of our training.
Coach Rick Saggese is an EXOS certified fitness specialist as well as a certified speed coach by the National Sports Performance Association (NSPA). We also offer BEMER Vascular regeneration 15 minute sessions for our clients individually or after their session to help them recover more efficiently or for adults looking for a non invasive wellness solution. If your goal is to increase your athletic performance or to just feel better in a positive, clean and individualized training studio you need to give Think Outside the Diamond an opportunity to wow you.
