How to Create Your Own Velocity Program

Posted by:

I get asked this question a lot. Looking through my email inbox, seems everyone (pitchers, parents, coaches) wants to know the secrets to increasing velocity.

“How do I help my pitcher, my son (whatever the case might be) throw harder so he can compete against tougher competition.

And as I was about to set on putting together a new in-depth blog post on the subject, a thought came to me.

What if, instead of the typical email or blog post, I did something ...

Motion Analysis: Tracking A Pitcher’s Progress

Posted by:

I want to let you in on a little secret.

As you know, I’m a big fan of using video with my pitchers. Motion Analysis can be a powerful tool…

But here’s something that might surprise you…

When I’m working with a pitcher, I DON’T record every pitch. In fact, there might be entire sessions where we don’t look at video at ALL.

“Things are a lot different from when you and ...

Secret Writing Tip for Better Pitching Mechanics

Posted by:

When it comes to pitching mechanics, it’s important to remember this.

No two pitchers are exactly the same…

I mean, you’re an individual, right? You’re not built exactly like that 95 MPH pitcher you see on TV… you’ve probably got your own strengths and weakness, your own physical constraints…

So it doesn’t make any sense for you try to COPY that pitcher’s delivery, right?

Or does it? 

This may seem a little off-topic, but I want you to ask yourself a simple question.

How do great writers ...

Motion Analysis for Fixing Mechanical Flaws

Posted by:

Okay, so in my last post I discussed what I consider some misrepresentations out there when it comes to coaches selling parents and pitchers on the importance of “good pitching mechanics.” If you missed it, click here: “Safe” Pitching Mechanics is a Lie

Now to be clear, the point there was NOT that injury prevention is a bad goal or that pitching mechanics don’t matter. And there are absolutely mechanical ...
