Balance. Direction. Timing.
Having an open mind and a willingness to try new things is a must for pitchers to reach new barriers. I’ve always said try to make the uncomfortable feel comfortable. Good athletes make positive adjustments to become better and get at their sport; great athletes make positive, technical adjustments that last their career. Each pitcher is unique and should have something positive to build on such as velocity, movement or control.
My core pitching philosophy is built on three key concepts: balance, direction, and timing. By mastering these three points young and old athletes can become very successful pitchers.
