Rich Barker is a former Major League Pitcher with the Chicago Cubs. A true competitor, Rich struggled with proper nutrition early in his career. He feels if he knew what he does today about the importance of nutrition and how to feed your body, he would have been better off.
Coach Barker tells player, "If you don't have the proper nutrition and stay hydrated, you're not going to play at your peak level."
As a Coach he has seen kids end-up in the hospital after a game due to improper, pre-game hydration and meals. He is a fan of Warrior UP To Win for this reason.
He says about kids taking on Warrior Up: "They're going to notice how they're consistently performing after a few weeks and the're going to want to build that habit because now they can play at a higher level."
