[h5]What can a hitter teach you about pitching?[/h5]  
Well, a LOT actually…

See, as pitchers, it’s easy to get wrapped up in that mindset, and you wind up looking at everything from a pitcher’s perspective. We tend to talk to other pitchers and pitching coaches, and look at everything through that lens.

But one of the best things you can do as a pitcher is talk to the hitters on your team. You’d be surprised what they might see in your delivery. And you might even learn a thing or two about what hitters are looking for at the plate that can really help you in your approach on the mound.

I recently caught up with Art of Baseball Founder, Mark Brooks.

Mark’s got a great website on hitting, and he’s a great resource for young ballplayers when it comes to developing strong character and a positive mental approach.

[h5]In this interview, you’ll hear Mark talk about things like:[/h5] [circle_list] [list_item]Persevering and creating your own opportunities:

[h5]Navigating the Recruiting Landscape with Andrew Beinbrink[/h5]  
Things have changed a lot in recent years in the world of college recruiting. With the rise of the internet, college showcases and elite travel ball, the whole landscape has gotten a lot more complicated since I went through it (which I guess was a long time ago now, even if it doesn’t feel that way)…

For today’s parents and players, navigating the complexities can be challenging, confusing, and downright overwhelming. And I hear the concerns of parents out there who want to make sure they’re doing all they can to help their kids get the right exposure and realize their goal of playing at the next level.

As I mentioned, things have changed so much since I went through it… so when parents and players come to me with questions, I try to rely on guys who are more plugged in can really help you navigate the today’s challenging recruiting landscape.

I recently caught up with SportsForce Recruiting Co-Founder, Andrew Beinbrink. Andrew is a former pro ball player and Arizona State standout. With SportsForce Recruiting, a leading college recruiting service, he has really great insights into the entire recruiting process, what works and what doesn’t.

[h5]Lessons for Pitchers and Parents from a Former Pro Sidearm Pitcher[/h5]

I think every pitcher, at one time or another, toys around with throwing sidearm. I know I used to mess around with it when I was a kid playing in the backyard with my friends. In today’s interview, I sit down with Ted Sullivan, former minor league sidearm pitcher turned successful Tech Entrepreneur.

If you’re involved in baseball at the youth, high school, or college level, there’s a good chance you know his company. Ted is the Co-Founder and CEO of GameChanger, the leading scorekeeping app on the market.

[h5]Why I think you’ll love this interview:[/h5]  
First of all, Ted’s got a really great baseball story. Ted and I were teammates in the minors, and when I first met him, he was already an established sidearm pitcher with pretty filthy stuff. What I didn’t realize until last night was that Ted didn’t really make the switch to pitching sidearm until midway through his junior year of college!

In the interview you’ll learn how he went from accepting a job as an investment banker to getting picked by the Indians and making a call he’ll never forget… telling the big investment firm, “Thanks, but no thanks.”

You’ll also hear about how Ted took his passion for baseball and combined it with his business expertise to form GameChanger. Today the app has been used to score over 2,000,0000games, and is used by over 90,000 coaches.

Ted really delivered some great tips for pitchers and parents in this discussion. So if you’re a pitcher thinking about playing at the next level, or you’re a parent of an aspiring pitcher, you have to check out this interview.
