Editor's Note: I'm pleased to introduce guest writer Karr Fager, a college athlete currently attending Northwestern University as of the time of this writing. Karr has played baseball, basketball, and soccer in high school and beyond, so I jumped at the opportunity when he offered to share his thoughts about the multi-sports athlete experience. Karr discussed other issues related to fitness and baseball at his (now retired) blog, Baseball Hideout - Joe Golton
As a multiple sport athlete, I have long wondered how much the other sports I played affected my baseball play, if at all. Baseball was my main sport from a young age, but I thoroughly enjoyed pickup games of football, basketball, volleyball, and really any other sport I could get my hands on.
