League Balls

How much does travel affect players over the season?

I know these guys fly charters/team planes and stay in nice hotels, but does the travel have an effect on energy and effort as the season goes on?

I spent more than half of April on the road, and I was exhausted. If a non-athlete like me feels that way, how much effect does it have on guys who have to perform athletically every night? Maybe someone on here who played minor league ball has some insight on this one?

I know that in the minors...travel kicks the living crap out of you. You travel by bus to all the locations, you are sleeping in motel beds that feel like they were not taken out of the box. We had to get our own food after the games so you were not always eating too healthy when Taco Bell is the only option at midnight. Staying at home each night has a great effect on your routine, you are staying in a comfortable bed that if questionable substances are on it you at least know that you put them there, you can monitor your food better than eating at a restaurant, you can get in a better workout each day, your locker room is usually a decent locker room for the home team, in the Cal league there were a few stadiums that we had to take turns getting dressed because only half the team fit in the locker room at one time...showers in those places are like showering in MASH units...it is not a great situation, only the hearty survive. Even staying luxurious hotel rooms all the time and flying on charters would nto be a cake walk...you still end up with cramping, jet lag...it is not a matter of money it is a matter as the body can only do so much!
