How hard is baseball?
^1) Meaning, what do you do in spring training, what are the contents in training (time, tactics, drills examples for several positions, coordinations), what do you do in training after the season started (or is this just the pitching sessions for pitchers and getting physical regeneration for position players), etc.?
^2) How would a game compare to other sports (say basketball, a football/soccer match, a 10.000m race, or smth else that takes about the same time)? The psychological factor seems to be much bigger for several players/positions than for other positions (say LF compared to pitcher) and compared to other sports, where you are much more involved, no matter where you play (i say this as a football/soccer player+coach, where you obviously have to be aware in many situations, but you also have to run around the entire match to adapt to the situation - an OF may have 2-5 actions in a game? I really don´t know.)
^3) There are so many games, how do players see this?
If I had a match, my body (not the entire body, but either the ankle, calves, thighs, groin or just some part of the legs) hurt quite a few times for 1-2 days after matches until i trained again 2-3 days later. Of course, it is said that some players (for example Dustin Pedroia, Hanley, Buchholz,..) are made bound for the DL, but what are they saying about playing each day (or 162 times in 180 days)? I don´t think there are that many sports where such schedules are planned.
Edit: I´m no baseball player, I´ve never played baseball in a team, so please forgive the weird question.
