Major League athletic trainers of PBATS give us insight into keeping their players healthy and at the top of their game.

What products and tools are available to you as an athletic trainer for Major League Baseball?

“As a professional baseball athletic trainer I can buy just about anything I need to help maintain the health and wellbeing of my players.”

With all the options open to you, why do you choose to use Bauerfeind? Specifically the Bauerfeind GenuTrain Knee Support?

“[GenuTrain] provides my athletes with the compression, stability and comfort that gives them confidence on the field. It gives me the confidence that I’ve provided my athlete with the best support available.

To me, Bauerfeind means confidence. I choose Bauerfeind products because frankly I believe they are the best.”

What makes confidence so important to a professional baseball player or athletic trainer?

“A confident athlete is a productive athlete, and helping a player feel confident with their body and performance is very important to me.”
