Turn the outfield wall into a pullup bar
Kevin Kiermaier may just never come down:

Make room for a quick barrel roll
And some wind sprints:

Do some cardio with a quick jaunt around the bases

Remember to hydrate, though:

Remember: Your bat is your most convenient exercise tool
And also a handy stress-reliever:

Don't forget your core!
Like crunches, but more fun:

Test your reaction time
And/or just straight-up do some pushups:

When all else fails, swat some dingers
Just don't be afraid to show your results afterward:
