Abstract

In baseball, a catcher has to squat for long periods of time and complete ball throwing using a squat stance. Individual difference is often observed in each catcher’s squat posture, and stance squat width, which affects the catcher’s performances and the muscle activity of lower limbs, has seldom been studied. The purpose of this study will be to investigate muscle activity in lower extremity when throwing is performed with varying stance squat widths.
