Building Your Own “Velocity” Program – Step 3: Training “INTENT”

Posted by:

Okay, LOOOoooong overdue…

Finally back with Step 3 for building your own velocity program… This is very often the #1 Missing Ingredient in a pitcher’s development… And this, in my opinion, is mainly for two reasons, or two trends that have become commonplace these days:
