Coach John Cumberland discusses the five day rotation and what pitchers do on the days they don't pitch to get ready. Coach Cumberland is a firm believer in not over throwing on side work and in off days, as he says we don't want to leave our best stuff in the bullpen. This schedule can be altered for a 7 day rotation, where most players only pitch once a week. The main thing to remember is that running will flush your arm of the lactic acid after you pitch, and make sure you get a good side in before the next time you get the ball for a start.
