Philosophy:

  • Training physical and mental skills of pitching- positive thoughts/encouragement, goals setting, visualization drills, aggressiveness
  • Focus on foundational mechanics, speed enhancement, location, basic pitches (fastball, change up, drop), development of specialty pitches (curve, screw, rise)
  • Use of training devices/aids- such as: spin right spinner, cannonball, weighted ball series, resistance band, and more!
  • I do not mold pitchers according to my personal preferences of pitching style!- I accept any pitching style (I believe it is what makes ‘us’ unique) as long as the basic mechanics are solid. I will adapt to the pitchers style and personality!

Skills covered:  basic fundamental mechanics (wrist snap, perfect circles, launch), basic pitches (fastball, change up, drop), speed, location, specialty pitches (curve, screwball, rise-ball).

Special Note:  The first session is half price! It will be more of an introduction, goal setting, identifying pitching tech. etc.
