Whether you’re a Little League Pitcher, already pitching professionally or any level in-between, ending your front leg lift in an athletic position is one of the undeniable differences between sustainable fastball command and not knowing where your pitch is going to end up.

Every athletic event starts from an athletic position.

Sports Parents - What to do after games?

Posted by Jack Perconte on November 30, 2018 at 3:30pm 4 Comments

 

Sport’s Parent and Baseball Coaching tip of the day

Grilling kids in the car after games about their play is not a good thing. However, after a “cooling off” period, things you can bring up can include:

  1. Team play. Questions like, “How did the team feel after the game?” or “What does the team need to do to improve?” are OK. They help kids realize sports are more than personal accomplishment…

The way you move down the mound forecasts command

Posted by L.A. "Skip" Fast on October 24, 2018 at 1:23pm 4 Comments

When you actively stride, push off the rubber, lead with your front hip or let gravity take you straight down the mound, you’ll forever struggle to put together back-to-back good outings???

When you move straight down the mound, your lower…

Hitting approach

Posted by Spencer Trayner on September 23, 2018 at 11:52am 1 Comment

“What should I be thinking when I walk up to the plate?”

A lot of hitters are being told from a young age to look to hit the fastball and adjust to anything off-speed. This is a great approach…if you are trying to do a job such as move a runner over into scoring position. The reality of it is that this approach is unsustainable. When pitchers start throwing harder and the MPH differential between their fastball and their off-speed becomes greater, then this approach simply…

No Excuses

Baseball coaching tips of the dayLook in the mirror first. I just shake my head when I hear coaches say, “They don’t want to play.” I’m like, “Well, that is on you.” Granted, we've all been there and that is not always an easy chore. But, look within for the answer.It is your job to create and keep player enthusiasm up. Having a go to motivation trick to get youth players out of the "doldrums" is essential. When kids…See More
