Why Do Elite Pitchers Outperform Everyone Else?

Pro Pitching Institute Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

There are two categories of Pitchers in the World.

There are …

  1. The Elite Big-League Pitcher who can expect their pitches to travel directly into their target.
  2. Everyone else.

What do Elite Pitchers do that others don’t?

Watch any elite Big-League Pitcher and you see a Pitcher who begins their hand separation at the same time they begin their stride.

Why does this happen? When your hand separation occurs at the same time you stride, you allow your lower body to produce the Big-League fastball command needed to challenge Big-League Hitters to reach base.

What does Everyone Else do?

Watch any Pitcher who begins their stride then separates their hands and you’re watching a Pitcher who can’t establish their fastball.

Why does this happen? When you stride out of your front leg lift, you naturally use your throwing arm to offset your forward weight shift. When you see your hands separating after you begin your stride, you know you’re using your throwing arm for balance, you’re forcing your throwing arm to always catch up with your body and, consequently you can’t know with any certainty where any one pitch will end up.

Become an Elite Pitcher.

We teach Pitchers how to separate their hands at the same time they stride. As a result, they can expect to deliver their pitches directly into their target and, consequently, keep their Team close enough to win each game they pitch.

Baseball Pitching Predicament Becomes Your Dilemma

Pro Pitching Institute Teaches Big-League Pitch LocationPro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

As a Pitcher, you mistakenly grow up thinking velocity, not pitch location, is your ticket to your Big-League pitching dreams.

By the time you realize Big-League Hitters are better equipped to drive your mistakes than you’re equipped to hit your spots, it might be too late to change the course of your pitching career.

How does Baseball deal with this disparity?

Professional Organizations invite Lower-Level Pitchers with the best “feel” for their pitch location to fill their Big-League openings.

When these Lower-Level Pitchers test their skill against Big-League Hitters, the Pitcher can only “hope” to keep their pitches out of the Big-League Hitters hitting zone.

Unfortunately, a “feel” for the strike zone is something that’s very personal and, consequently, isn’t teachable.

Therefore, the Lower-Level Pitchers who get a chance to pitch in the Bigs rarely live their Big-League dreams for long.

We build pitching futures.

Our “Pitch Location Success Plans©  …

  • Shows you how to turn your “feel” for the strike zone into the expectation that your pitches will travel directly into your target
  • No matter your age or skill level, teaches you how to discourage Hitters from driving your pitches.
  • Gives you the opportunity to move up the Baseball Ladder smoothly and seamlessly.

Don’t Let Hitters Steal Your Big-League Pitching Dreams

Pro Pitching Institute                                                              Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

The Big-League Business Model wants you to succeed but doesn’t support your success.

Every Professional Pitcher and every Positional Player dream of having an Big-League career.

– A Pitcher’s Big-League pitching dreams ride on their ability to neutralize a constant flow of extremely talented Hitters.
– A Hitter’s Big-League dreams hinge on their ability to make the Pitcher constantly pay for their mistakes.

A high-end fastball can turn you into a Professional Pitcher, but to realize your Big-League pitching dreams, you need to navigate your way around a constant stream of Hitters wanting to achieve their Big-League dreams.

The only way to stop these skilled Hitters from stealing your Big-League pitching dreams is for you to deliver your pitches directly into a target that’s been placed in a hard to hit spot.

Reality Check

Because Big-League Organizations have lots of Pitchers in their Minor League system, they can fill their Big-League openings with Pitchers who they think are ready to challenge Big-League Hitters.

When a Pitcher gets their Big-League call-up, but can’t locate their pitches, a stream of top-notch Hitters will reach base and the Organization will have no choice but to send the Pitcher back down.

We bridge the gap between professional pitchers and Big-League inning eaters.

As just one example, after registering an 8.22 ERA over 7.2 innings during his first-ever Big-League call up, a first-round Big-League draft pick asked us to help him with his pitch location. We eliminated what was negatively impacting his location and, in his next call up, he started 22 Big-League games while posting a 5.08 ERA over 117 innings.

Achieve Your MLB Dreams

Achieve Your MLB Dreams Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

Failure is not an option.

You can try and try and try and try, but nothing seems to work.

You can accept failure, or, to achieve your MLB dreams, you can find a way to turn your failures into success.

Sounds so simple, but what exactly is the formula for turning failure into success?

Let’s do some detective work.

Whatever is holding you back is something you can’t see but is always present.

Let’s save you some time … Gravity fits very nicely into this category. Gravity is all around us all the time. So much so that we tend to take it for granted.

Gravity leads you to something else you can’t see and may have yet to consider. Balance.

Your mind uses gravity to tell your body that it’s out of balance. The instant your body senses an imbalance, your mind manipulates your body position and, more importantly, while your body performs its balancing routine your movements take on a life of their own.

Therefore, to produce MLB ready results, you want your throwing action to become the balancing routine your body uses to get itself back into balance.

How do you do this?

You start with and stick with ONE pitching plan. Once you have a pitching plan, you discipline yourself to adjust to trends.

Every time you experience 3 or more unacceptable outcomes in a row, you know some movement within your pitching plan is forcing you to use your throwing arm as a part of your balancing routine.

As long as you stick with your ONE pitching plan, over 100’s of adjustments, you come up with a pitching plan that’ll use your throwing action as your one and only balancing routine. In the end, you can expect to deliver your pitches directly into your intended target, produce late stage ball movement and use your deceptive arm action to become an MLB inning eater.

Finding Solutions

Only One Approach Produces Pitching Success!

Only one approach produces pitching success.Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

Managing the way you think to move produces better, more sustainable, pitching results than trying to manage the way you see your body move.

The Most Elite Pitchers Use an Inside/Out Approach

When examined closely, 5% of all Pitchers use an Inside/Out process to achieve the elite pitching results you dream of having.

An Inside/Out Mental Process lets your foot placements (the outside) use your body’s inherent reaction patterns to drive your results (the inside).

  • Your foot placements drive your body position at the top of your front leg lift.
  • Your front leg lift body position determines your throwing arm path.
  • Your throwing arm path impacts where the pitch ends up.

With an Inside/Out approach, you stop trying and start producing the elite results you always dreamed you have.

The Rest of the Pitchers Use an Outside/In Approach

Until examined more closely, you represent the 95% of all Pitchers who  use an Outside/In Approach to try and manage your reactions (the outside) as if they were controllable actions (the inside).

Typically, an Outside/In Approach deals with the movements you see as you move from your front leg lift into your release.

  • When you experience an unacceptable result, you think to adjust your arm slot.
  • You use trial-and-error to figure out the arm angle that’ll improve your last pitch results.
  • Finally, you use muscle memory to reinforce your new arm slot.

With Outside/in Approach, you feel like you’re always wondering where your next pitch is going to end up.

Effective foot placements produce remarkably consistent results

Your foot placements supply the prompts guaranteed to produce 5%’er results. If you’re a Pitcher or a Pitching Dad who wants to know about their current foot placement, let’s talk.

How to Expect Superior Pitching Results

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.You’re born with a biological balance mechanism whose sole purpose is to satisfy your deep-rooted need for balance.

Your biological balance mechanism turns “on” before you even realize you have an imbalance. Likewise, once your body senses it’s back in balance, your biological balance mechanism turns “off”.

Your biological balance mechanism produces the movements you see

Prior to making any action, your biological balance mechanism must be in the “off” position. This means that any action will cause your weight to shift.

Your weight shift activates your biological balance mechanism. Your imbalance instantly uses your leg, torso and arm movements to get back in balance. Once in balance, you begin this cycle all over again.

This means the only way to control your movements is to obsess over making the right action out of the right starting position.

Your biological balance mechanism determines your arm slot

Your biological balance mechanism uses your footwork to determine your body position at the top of your leg lift.

Your body position at the top of your leg lift tells your biological balance mechanism the throwing arm path to take into your ball release.

You can expect stellar results

When you have the right footwork, your drive for balance uses your throwing action to complete your delivery.

This means, when you properly manage your biological need for balance, your pitches end up where you want and behave the way you expect.

Want to use your biological balance mechanism to your advantage?

Through our “Winning Pitch Location Strategies©”, we use your biological balance mechanism patterns to teach you how to expect your pitches to travel directly into your intended target.
