I don't know how many people here actually played ball. But here is something coming from someone who did.
Stay away from the stims for a ball game. Jack3d, Craze, SuperStim v.9.5 (Yes I know it isnt real).. etc. Those are about the absolute worst thing you can do for yourself before a ball game. The concentration and timing required for putting the barrel on a ball will be completely thrown off with a strong psychoactive.
I didn't care to read this thread because it looks like there is a break down. But OP, stay away from the powerful stims for a ball game.

Hemavol is just as much of an endurance product as it is a pump product. I am not debating which is better than the other or stim vs non-stim, but scientifically speaking, theobromine is a stimulant and will always be classified as such.

I'd check out nimbus harmony
Harmony is a NON Proprietary formula that consist of amino acids, vitamins and minerals which provide an overall feeling of wellbeing. Harmony delivers a calm, yet acute sense of awareness. Harmony also contains vitamins to help in the recovery and repair of your central nervous system so you can feel naturally better longer.
You will not find another product with as little stims as this, that makes you feel the way Harmony does. Nimbus does not rely on heavy stims to give you that "feeling", instead we use proven ingredients that work in conjuction with eachother. This is one of the most responisble low stimmed products on the market. The versatility of this product is like no other. It can be taken in replacement of coffee, energy drinks, in a causual setting, etc.

Hydration is huge with any sport, and BodyGuard will make sure your body stays hydrated during the game and keep you from suffering cramps, etc.
BodyGuard consist of the following:
- Poseidon Complex
- 7g BCAAs
- 1.6g Beta Alanine
- Simple & Sustained Carbs
- Loaded with Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) for natural energy
Mix 2 servings of this up in a water bottle and start sipping on it pre-game, as well as through the game. You will notice that your hydration is great, as well as you energy levels. This product really did wonders for me as I was playing in the trenches.

I'll reiterate that stims definitely have a place in baseball. Recall that this is a sport in which elevated heart rate is rarely if ever a factor.
This is not to say that these other ergogens don't have a place, but I think you'd really be missing out on the boost of a mildly stimmed product. I've enjoyed Focus XT, White Flood, Fierce, Hemavol, etc on the baseball field. I was a starting pitcher and the mental boost from caffeine is anecdotally far more beneficial than anything else I've used.

not to mention the mental focus on spotting a pitch as a batter, or reaction time as the fieleder are priceless...
my vote for max intense 1scoop
40g dextrose/trehalose blend
2g carnitine tartate
2 g alcar
3g beta alanine
3 g creatine
well until the iForce intra workout is created
still waiting to here back on flavoring. but it will for sure compete as the top in its class

With your racetam exposure my guess is you didn't dose it with a choline? As racetams utilize choline. Some ALCAR, Choline and Piracetam will turn your lights on in a hurry.

My vote is for Gatorade Performance.
They only had regular Gatorade when I played and that worked fine for me.

Basically - user dependence for the loss

What it really comes down to is the player and how they react to stims.
I was the type of player where if I was over anxious or the nerves kicked in too much id overthink and make errors and have trouble at the plate. Which is why red bull or too much caffeine before a game was usually like kryptonite for me.
However, dmaa and a touch if caffeine puts me more in the zone rather than jumpy, and would actually help me focus and in a way loosen me up. I would take one or two Ergopharm AMP and feel great, which was if you remember the first dmaa product.
As I mentioned earlier in this thread, Greenies (amphetamines) were huge in MLB up until they started testing for them.
If I were still playing now , depending how I was feeling the day of a game id consider ALCAR, choline, and a touch of dmaa.
