"Why I Teach Movement... Not Mechanics!"

Tell me something please...

Why doesn't every pitching coach

Teach Movement, Not Mechanics?

  • Movements are natural, mechanics are not.
  • Movements can be FELT, mechanics cannot.
  • Maybe you just didn't know?

You could make a million throws in a row and none of them, not a single one would show up exactly the same way on the video, or computer screen.

Heck.. You can't even write your…

In celebration of Rex’s 5th Birthday, I’m giving you a chance to get the entireCore Velocity Belt System for only $5. Yeah, $5., that’s not a misprint.

Typically, The Core Velocity System costs $349. However, it’s my son’s 5th birthday and I want to celebrate it with guys like you.

I’m actually having two contests. One for first-time Core Velocity buyers and the other ‘belt contest’ is for current Core Velocity Belt owners.…

"Nothing Worth Having, Comes Easy!"

If only more kids were taught the value of hard work…Or, were actually given credit for their hard work instead of being blamed and told this game isn’t for them.

Today’s long-winded email is my personal story as a college coach and how anything is possible if you actually believe in yourself and have the desire to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals in life…(This is one of the most…

(NEW) Long Toss Program for Pitchers & Position players <Download>

I’ll never forget what I learned about long-toss from a southern Baptist preacher out in the middle of Mississippi.

I’d driven almost five and half hours across the entire state of Mississippi to watch a junior college baseball game. I was recruiting a pair of right -handed pitchers, one’s name was Lump and the other, Montrell.

Both kids played for a juco out of Mississippi and I’ll be honest, I had no idea what I was going to see when I watched these two pitch that day. I…

You Ever Heard Of "Velocity Breadcrumbs?"

I don’t normally talk about the pitchers I train, but today’s story is different.

Everyone needs to hear this one.

It was cold as hell at the Christmas Camp in Nashville that night back in 2005. It was my first year at the NCAA D1 level and what I was watching had me excited, in fact I couldn’t wait until I could coach this kid.

The season passed and I can still remember the first day of practice. It was one of those scorching hot Nashville August…

(Video Review) The Cure For The Inverted W

You’re a pitching mech-addict, let’s face it.

But, here’s the ironic part.

What I’m going to show you goes against what you’ve been taught about pitching mechanics and it’s going to help you get over your addiction.

The reason you’re addicted is because you’ve been looking at it backwards, focusing on the symptom and not the cause, valuing key points and desirable positions.

Think of this as your first day of rehab and you’re about to look…

Why You Could Be To Blame For Players Body Language!

Why this may be the most important message you've ever read...

Can mental toughness be taught?

You want to know what I think?

Yes!

But you know what…

  • It starts with parents and coaches like us, we’ve got to hold our kids accountable inside every single activity!
  • We can’t let them off the hook and point the finger at the umpire, coach or teacher and when that “poor me” body language pops up…

SQUASH IT!

(Video) Why this should always be a pitcher's 1st adjustment!

Why do we make pitching so complicated?

Most coaches are quick to blame everything on pitching mechanics, but very few realize that your ability to throw strikes has very little to do with pitching mechanics!

It's true, the first adjustment every pitcher should make is....THE EYES!

You'll be amazed at how quickly this changes things for your pitchers, don't believe me....try it yourself!

Why this was DIFFERENT!

In about 5 hours, I’ll be heading over to Wrigley Field for early BP and to catch up with my guys.

But today is different than all my previous visits...

Back in 2005 I met this kid while coaching at Lipscomb.

To say he was “baseball crazy” is an understatement.

As a high school kid he weaseled his way into the clubhouse at Greer Stadium, it’s the AAA affiliate in Nashville of the Milwaukee Brewers.

He shined shoes, chased down balls, anything and everything he could do… Continue
