It's opening day of the baseball season in the majors today and I know the Twins will be playing in a controlled atmosphere. But I've always wondered about outdoor games in the early spring.
Today in Cincinnati, it's about 40 degrees and it's getting colder. Snow is predicted and there is a cold wind blowing.
So here's my question...
In cold weather how do pitcher's arms react. How to they keep warm and loose? Do they throw more off-speed pitches and let up a bit. It seems to me that arms could be really strained or injured in such cold conditions.
So, anyone ever go through this? What do the coaches tell you? How do you keep your arm loose? Or don't you?
