It all starts from the ground up!
The feet are the first thing that hits the ground

It all starts from the ground up. The feet are the first thing that hits the ground in all sports and without being balanced from the ground up, an athlete’s success is in jeopardy. Being balanced will bring out an athlete’s natural ability and prevent foot injuries from occurring. In all sports, athletes' legs create the power and the feet drive the legs, especially in baseball and softball. All baseball and softball coaches preach, "Get the balls of the feet on the ground." Unbalanced feet or standing flat footed leads to flaws in hitting, pitching, fielding and running mechanics resulting in lack of success during competition and foot injuries. When athletes' feet become balanced, the advantage goes to the athlete. Performance outcomes improve 100% and foot injuries decrease. Arch supports placed in baseball and softball cleats will place the balls of the athletes feet on the ground.
Arch supports are designed to prevent the arch of the foot from collapsing and place the ball of the foot on the ground. Arch supports stabilize and balance the joints of the foot. When the arch is not properly supported, muscles in the arch of the foot are more likely to tire and fatigue. Arch cramps, muscle spasms and plantar fasciitis can commonly occur in athletes. Proper arch support in cleats will eliminate potential acute and chronic foot injuries.
