S8E8 - Sticky Fingers and Sticking your Landing: Part One…and how they are related

In this episode, Coach Larry Owens and I dive into the topic of the day: the use of sticky substances by MLB pitchers. I interviewed three younger pitchers and you will hear their take-home messages about the subject.

You will also hear Part One of “Sticking your Landing”; the importance of stability of the front leg for power through the acceleration and follow-through parts of the delivery especially as it relates to maintaining a good grip on the ball.

Season 8 Episode 7 - June 2, 2021

S8E7 - Pitching Velocity and Command: how it can be compromised by Leading with the Elbow

Using a comparison to a quarterback's arm position, I discuss one of the most common flaws in shoulder mechanics that can cause inefficient spin, loss of velocity, and diminished command of the baseball. Leading with the elbow is especially common in youth pitchers. With an anatomy lesson in the forearm, and excellent questions from Coach Larry Owens of Bellarmine University, I teach how to see what it looks like and offer some tips on the why and how of understanding the issue.

S8E6 - Finger "tips" for controlling the fastball: my six-drill plan to increase your feel for the release of the most important pitch in your arsenal

The fingers and fingertips are the last body part to have contact with the ball which makes them the most important body part to understand, have feel for, and strengthen. This episode was created to give you a new way, or a reminder, about the importance of what happens as the ball leaves your hand.

Head Coach Larry Owens from Bellarmine University is my Co-Host and as always, he sheds his unique perspective on this topic and the current increase in the hit-by-pitch statistic.

Season 8 Episode 4 - April 13, 2021

In-season Troubleshooting

  • Incomplete rotation to the plate
  • Timing
  • Stretch vs. Wind-up stride differences...

...are the topics discussed in this episode of The Fix.

Troubleshooting a pitcher's issues during the season must be done differently than in the off-season. If pitchers start to show sudden location, velocity, or arm-soreness issues, as coaches you need easy and simple ways to recognize the issues and make simple adjustments. This episode will give you some of the easiest fixes I use to get the job done without doing a complete overhaul to the pitcher's delivery.
