Coach we use the Core Power for baseball program by Barry Lovelace.Great DVD a lot of great core drills on it
Comment by Bruce Sarte on February 22, 2011 at 9:15am
Ah yes, I love when people talk about "core" strength... too many kids don't spend enough time on the abs and legs.  Was listening to an interview with Matt Capps the other day on MLB Radio and he spent a few minutes talking about how he trains his core.  That is definitely something I try and convey to the youngsters who want to excel.

Coach Sarte I think they are both important to look at. I spend a lot of time on core strength must injuries occur from having a week core. We also do alot of late shoulder torque drills. I look at their strenght and weaknesses on are video analyzing program. Ito am a big fan of Tom House , Paul Reddick and I like a lot of thinks that Ron Wolforth from Pitching Central does. We work on improving the strenght in the pitchers and also improving on their wekness

Coach Krapf -- I'm a big fan of the Tom House method.. I also love Dick Mills program...  I've had success with young pitchers with both programs and have applied them based on the individual and their strengths vs weaknesses.


any thoughts on one verses the other?

Hi coach Ayres my name is coach Krapf from Newtown Pa. I am the pitching coach at Council Rock High Shool and run 3 & out pitching & hitting clinic. We  have add great success over the years to have no arm injuries. We use all of the booty drills from Tom House and late shoulder rotation drills some drills which I have made up to teach late shoulder rotation or hip and spine drills what ever you like to call them. We teach to keep the body moving from leg lift to follow through.I would like to hear your approach on giving lesson

I recently (today), joined checkswing and am excited about this site already.  I've seen a number of very good posts.  I would love to become a part of this site, and give any help where it is needed.  I recently published a book on throwing / pitching aimed at helping parents and coaches of young players teach the correct mechanics at an early age.

I want to hear opinions on Scapula Load vs. Long circular reach back arm action in throwing and or pitching.

Hey All,

I'm looking for a quality pitcher/pitching coach with a really good knowledge of the subject...who might possible be looking to create a product (electronic) for me. I have been creating the hitting side of things with good success and want to branch into pitching.

If someone is willing, I would love to chat about creating a pitching product (written/typed, audio, video, ebook, etc) and pay for your help.

email me at
