Your pitching motion blueprint. Once you set your feet, your in-built urge to stay in balance reads your foot placements to determine (1) your body position at the top of your front leg lift, then your spontaneous urge to stay in balance uses (2) your body position at the top of your front leg lift to control…See More

"Hey Skip...nice response, but comparing to smaller aspect of pitching, not a specialist that typically comes in throwing heat, is easier to figure out. It may not be easier to hit, although by your stats it appears they are, but when throwing a…"

To have an advantage over the hitter, you use your lower body to place each pitch into your Catcher’s target.No matter the grip or release, every pitch shows a fastball throwing arm speed, comes out of the same release window and goes into the Catcher’s target with extremely late ball movementYour Team bases their selection…See More

More About Me:
Our domination instruction IS the ONLY pitching instruction you'll ever need!

You're undoubtedly proud, and should be, of your pitching accomplishments.

At the same time, you have some lingering concerns whether your current skills will hold up at the next level.

In today’s increasingly competitive baseball climate, to move up the baseball ladder, you need to be more dominant than the next guy.

As a Pitcher, you need to use pinpoint location, later ball movement and a deceptive Arm action to make all onlookers believe you'll be able to immediately be competitive at your next level.

In as little as 1/2 hour, we guarantee* to give any Scout seeing you pitch all the evidence they need to know you possess superior pitching skills.
