Results are reported of a research effort designed to provide a comprehensive profile of the characteristics of members of the Canadian National Baseball Team. The subjects of the study were candidates for the team. The control group consisted of top level amateur baseball players from Windsor. Four examinations were made: 1) physiological tests for maximum oxygen uptake and skinfold measures; 2) biomechanical laboratory tests for static strength and field test on time, distance, and velocity factors; 3) psychological tests; and 4) the organization and administration of the team. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop a conceptual and mathematical model involving the most relevant tests in the selection and development of elite national baseball players. (JD)
