Eating right during both on and off season is essential to keep you healthy and alert on the field, but nutrition is especially vital on game days so you can put your best foot forward.

Eating right during both on and off season is essential to keep you healthy and alert on the field, but nutrition is especially vital on game days so you can put your best foot forward. We have provided softball players a few helpful tips on how to eat and drink on big game days so their bodies will be nourished and ready to face the field.

1) Water is your best friend.

Drinking water is a huge priority on game days. Ideally, you should start hydrating the day before a big game. We recommend you drink 8-10 cups of water on a game day. Drinking 8-10 cups of water will keep your body replenished and will prevent you from becoming dehydrated or overheated on the field. Be sure to drink water in increments. The last thing you want to do is chug a whole bunch of water all at once. This could cause you to become sick. Pace yourself throughout the day, from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep. Remember that drinking water after a game is just as important as drinking water both before and during a game.
