High School Coaches’ Pre-Season Questions: Asked and Answered

In this special Pre-Season Series, with my guest coach Steve Harrow, and emails from two high school coaches Brent and David, we cover the issues that come up for coaches during this time of the year: how to create the pre-season calendar for getting the pitchers’ arms ready; what to do when pitchers are coming in late to the season because they play a second sport; how to rotate pitchers in a 4-day tournament without breaking recovery-rule guidelines… and more.

When position players also pitch: differences in mechanics and some warning signs of trouble ahead

In Part Two with Coach Steve Harrow as my guest, we talk about the differences in position-player throwing mechanics and pitching mechanics.

And with many position players in high school also pitching, I teach about the common errors that can be made when the pitcher doesn’t shift his mechanics from the field to the mound. What to look for, why it is so common, and some ideas for instruction are discussed.

I also address some questions from a youth coach about preparation, throwing programs, and underweight balls that were generated in response to episode 15.If you work with young pitchers, you don’t want to miss this.

Pitching Motion: some common flaws explained

In the MLB segment of this podcast, I answer the question that I have been most frequently asked during October baseball: “what is it about the motion of Verlander and Cole that makes them so good?”.

In the Teaching Moment, I connect the dots between some of the most common flaws in the pitching motion and a realization I had regarding why these flaws are so prevalent…especially among youth pitchers.The understanding of this connection can make teaching the proper adjustment much easier for coaches.

And in the Pearl segment, I discuss the importance of consistency with the delivery and site an observation during the play-offs.
