Most athletes should try to work towards strength in big compound movements.
Bench, squat, deadlift, overhead press, bent rows, pull ups, and weighted carry are just a few that I prioritize.
While all of these movements are great for building overall strength and power they lack transverse plane strength and power. The transverse plane in my opinion is one of the most important areas of focus when it comes athlete development especially if that athlete plays baseball like @steven_fortune Working this plane does not mean that you simply just work rotation (concentric) it also means you must work anti rotation (eccentric, isometric) because an athlete can be strong is concentrically but weak isometrically/eccentrically. As an athlete you need to be strong in every plane, phase of contraction, and range of motion. Prioritize compound movements but make sure to fill in the gaps with transverse plane strength and power.
