What is a 5 tool player?

 

 

A 5 tools player is someone who can do it all.  There is no weakness to their game.  True 5 tool players are very rare. 

 

"Tools" refer to a players ability as it pertains to playing baseball.

 

The 5 tools are..

 

1)  Hitting for Power

2)  Hitting for Average

3)  Fielding Ability

4)  Throwing Ability

5)  Running Speed

A 5 tool player is extremely good at all 5 abilities.  

 

Mike Trout is a good example of a 5 tool player.  

 

 

Most power hitters are too big to run fast.  Most fast players lack the power to hit home runs consistently. 

 

A 5 tools player does it all.
