22 September 2014 The Horsehide and the Pigskin Two of the most popular sports in America have to definitely be baseball and football. These two sports provide thousands of hours of entertainment for thousands of people. They give us something to root for every single season. Whether or not you’re a baseball fan or a football fan, you don’t have to know everything to realize they have a lot of difference, but also a lot of similarities, as well. Try looking at a baseball player then look at a football player, you can tell very quickly who does more physical training, exercise and lifting. Both sports require some element of physical conditioning. I play baseball and I know it’s all about flexibility, responsiveness and quickness, where as in football, it’s about how much force, explosiveness, and just brute strength you must possess. I gave my friend who is a 300 pound lineman a baseball at shortstop. He was not quick about getting the ball out of his glove by any means. Naturally, it’s going to be tougher for him, because his arms were moving noticeably slower. This brings me to my next idea. You must train a certain way, to play a certain position in a certain game. Both baseball and football require you to have some sort of mental attitude, out on the playing field. In baseball if I’m not loose, warmed up and relaxed while playing my position, I am more likely to trip or stumble over myself and make errors. Football is exactly the opposite. In football my friend told me, “You have to be tight and tense, so you don’t get murdered on the field.” It takes countless hours of practices to train yourself to stay in both of those mindsets. That also brings me to my next point. One major similarity between football and baseball is the amount of hours of running you put in. It’s the kind of running where by the end of the day, your legs still feel like they are running and don’t even get me
