If It’s So EASY Why Doesn’t Everybody Do It? (Velocity & Command Tips)

Posted by:

Listen close… What I’m about to tell you is very important.

Learning to throw harder with better command is EASY.

Yup. It’s true, and I’ll stand behind that.

Now I’m NOT talking about mastering your craft and becoming the absolute BEST pitcher you can be. That, my friends, is HARD. That takes work… Lots and lots of it.. Years and years of it, in fact. It’s the ideal. And there’s nothing more rewarding in the long run.

Pitch counts…

Do they matter?

Absolutely.

And as a general rule, I’d say following the PitchSmart guidelines are a good start.

Breathing Through Your Eyelids Like A Lava Lizard

Posted by:

There’s a great scene in Bull Durham where Annie gives Nuke Laloosh (best baseball movie names ever?) some perplexing advice…

Annie: “I want you to breathe through your eyelids.”

Nuke: “My eyelids???”

Annie: “Like the lava lizards of the Galapagos Islands.”
