When playing a game, it’s already difficult trying to keep your focus on winning, but then the weather could also play a factor on how you perform. During this time of the year, when it is cold, rainy weather comes out and messes up everything.

Athletes will play through this kind of weather, unless the officiating crew calls the game off. When asking athletes, it seemed that for outdoor sports like soccer and baseball. there is a slight difference with a preference of weather. Soccer players prefer the cold despite how “frozen” their legs and toes may get. Baseball players prefer the hot even though they get drenched with sweat.

Baseball player junior Xavior Campos states, “I prefer the hot because in the cold, my arm hurts when I throw and my muscles get tight, causing more of a risk of me getting hurt.”

Soccer player junior Luis Bonilla comments, “I prefer the cold because in the hot, I get really sweaty. In the cold, it’s only my legs that are cold, but when we move around, it’s easier to keep warm. The one thing that the sports agree on is the wind and how it’s the worst weather to play in.” Fellow soccer player, Junior Alexander Orduño states, “Playing in the wind makes the ball move all around and harder to watch the ball in the air.”

The weather seems to affect baseball players a lot more than soccer because in the cold, it makes throwing the ball hard and, in baseball, throwing the ball is one of the most important parts. In soccer the goalkeeper has a difficult time because they are standing still for more than half of the game and their muscles get all tight, making it hard to move. The most important thing for both sports during cold weather is trying to keep their body temperature up.
