Successful Pitchers build their motion around their subconscious responses.

Consider the 4 ways your subconscious works.1. To your subconscious, the only real thing is your present position.   The good news is that you have complete and total control over your current body position. 2. Your subconscious only acts in the present.  Your subconscious only responds to your current body position. 3. Your…See More

Bruce Sarte commented on L.A. "Skip" Fast's blog post Velocity Doesn’t Define You
"True enough - velocity isn't everything, and depending on the level it does not even have to define the pitcher.  Yes, a kid in high school hitting 90 is going to be noticed.  But a kid in high school throwing 80, and has 3 pitches he…"

Velocity Doesn’t Define You

All too often your pitching is defined by your velocity and not where your pitch ends up.Sadly, People make instant conclusions about you as a Pitcher based upon your velocity. Even worse, Pitchers with lesser velocity and pinpoint command come to feel inferior to Pitchers who throw harder, but don’t know where their next pitch is going to end up?You’re led to believe velocity is the end-all-be-all, but, once a hard throwing pitcher moves to the next level, they’re just like everyone else… they…See More

Your Coach determines your success.

Your subconscious is your Coach’s primary tool.Studies show your subconscious constantly monitors your state of balance and processes what you need to do to stay in balance 500,000 times faster than your conscious.  In cases of an extreme imbalance, your conscious mind tells you that you’re not in balance, but it’s your…See More

Elite pitchers focus on their motion, not their results.

When a pitcher’s results are unacceptable, they adjust their motion. Their motion’s efficiency, functionality and sustainability becomes only as good as their most acceptable last pitch result.For any pitcher to distinguish themselves, they become more efficient than other pitchers, make their movements more functional than other…See More

Are your pitchers rated as an “A” or “B” pitcher?

The difference between an "A" and "B" rated pitcher is like day and night.An "A" Pitcher's foot placements keep their throwing arm uninvolved with their balance.A "B" Pitcher's foot placements force them to use their throwing arm for balance. There's no middle ground. Either your body uses your throwing arm for…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.
