An Athletic Stance Guarantees Sustainable Command

Posted by L.A. "Skip" Fast on March 15, 2019 at 9:45am 0 Comments

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.

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???

A lifelong dream washed away

A lifelong dream washed away

The major league shot he chased his entire life finally arrived. Then it drowned.

In the middle of it all, the entire, emotional ordeal that would come to define his career, in the midst of the literal storm that was drenching the Eastern Seaboard on the afternoon of Sept. 5, 2006, and the perfect, figurative one that was conspiring at that moment to make him the…
