Knowing Your Unknowns Produces Instant Improvement

 

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

How do you Measure what you know?

If you knew everything you needed to know about your delivery, over 50% of your pitches WOULD end up where you want with the velocity/ball movement you expect.

Anything less than 50% and there are some unknowns you don’t fully understand or have yet to discover.

If you’re like other Pitchers, you have yet to appreciate …

– How your body reacts to your forward movement,
– How your body keeps itself in balance,
– How your shoulders and hips work together, and
– How rotational inertia affects your pitch results.

Make these unknowns a part of every delivery and your Million$ pitching results become your expectation.

Right Movements in the Right Order

With an understanding of these unknowns, these unknowns merge to produce the Million$ pitching results needed to achieve your Big-League dreams.

Once a knowledgeable Coach sees your pitching motion, he intuitively knows how to adjust your movement sequence, make these unknowns a part of every delivery and, by doing so, take you a step closer to maximizing your pitching potential.

Comparisons breed frustration.

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.It’s human nature to compare, compete and measure your success against the accomplishments of others.

Most believe, when you copy a successful pitching motion, pitching success is yours …or is it?

Comparisons are unfair.

You know yourself better than you know anyone else.

As a result, you compare the worst of you against the best of others.

You set out trying to do the impossible … make your actions duplicate another person’s reactions.

Your competition isn’t against others.

In pitching, your only competition is you.

To be the best pitching version of yourself, you need to stop these foolish comparisons from robbing you of your energy, your focus, and your pitching career.

In the moment, you might think you’re doing the right thing, but eventually you’ll come to understand what a waste of time it is trying to copy someone else.

Your battle isn’t against others. Your war is within your own heart, your mind, and your soul.

Compete against yourself and the path to your pitching dreams becomes clear.

Compete Against Yourself

The Way You Measure Your Changes Can Hold You Back!

 

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

If you’re like most Pitchers, you measure the changes you make to your motion by tracking your results.

Trying to improve your results by measuring your results doesn’t make sense???

A Better Measurement

Let’s work backwards into a more realistic measurement.

  1. Improved results come from your lower body sending your pitch into your target.
  2. To get your lower body to pull your throwing arm into release, your lower body must rotate into the end of your stride.
  3. To end your stride with a lower body rotation, you must come out of your front leg lift opening your front shoulder to your target.
  4. To open your front shoulder out of your front leg lift, you must end your front leg lift with your weight balanced between your knees.

Therefore, when you make your weight distribution at the top of your front leg lift your sole focus, you can count on your results to quickly and permanently improve.

Need Help with Your Results?

The Pro Pitching Institute teaches the 3 simple movements guaranteed to end your front leg lift with your weight between your knees.

The Key to Best-in-Class Pitching Results

 

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

When you swat a fly, you roll up a newspaper and “wham” the fly is history. This is your right brain reacting to the circumstance.

Once you had the newspaper in hand, your left-brain self-talk didn’t include your arm angle, your weight shift, how far you were going to step. You just swatted the fly!

The Best Pitchers Trust Their Right-Brain

During your pitching motion, the more your left-brain actions end your front leg lift with your weight centered between your knees, the more your right-brain throwing response sends your pitches into your target.

Change your right-brain responses as if they were controllable left-brain actions and you won’t see as many pitches travel into your target as you want and, in the end, might not realize your full potential.

The Fix is Simple

The art of producing best-in-class pitching results always follows the same progression.

– First, you understand how your left and right brains interact.
– Next, your left-brain actions send your right brain the appropriate messages.
– Finally, you trust your right-brain will send your pitches into your target.

Stop “Feeling” for Your Target

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

Fact: Your throwing action is a result of your body self-correcting your weight transfers.

Most Pitchers search for a “feel”

A Pitcher’s “feel” is the sensation they experience between their weight transfer out of their front leg lift and their throwing action.

If you’re like most Pitchers, when you experience the result you want, you associate your result with a “feel”.

However, unless you duplicate this “feel” from one outing to the next, you never really know where any one pitch is going to end up.

Find the right “feel” and your throwing arm sends your pitches directly into your intended target. Struggle to find the “feel” you want, and your throwing arm takes on a life of its own.

Elite Pitchers Don’t “Feel”, They Know.

Elite Pitchers come into their stride without having to shift their weight.

Instead, they generate a rotational force where they make their body end their stride with a glove side weight shift.

Elite Pitchers rely on their natural instincts to self-correct their glove side weight shift and automatically send their pitches directly into their target.

Their physical movement patterns remove the need to “feel” a productive arm slot and, as such, they can expect their pitches to go where they want and behave the way they expect.

Stop Searching and Start Doing

Are You a Behavior or Results Driven Pitcher?

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

“Behavior Driven Pitchers” Excel

“Behavior Driven Pitchers’” hand separations initiate their stride, their stride prompts their throwing action and their throwing action gets each pitch to travel directly into their intended target.

“Behavior Driven Pitchers” trust their body to help them succeed in a sport build around failure.

So much so that when a “Behavior Driven Pitcher” misses their target over the plate, they know their body puts so much late stage ball movement on the pitch that even professional Hitters will struggle to drive the ball.

“Results Driven Pitchers” Hope to Excel

As “Results Driven Pitchers” move down the mound, they use their throwing arm to keep their body in balance.

“Results Driven Pitchers” fail to realize or don’t want to accept the fact that once they begin to move down the mound, they’ve lost control of their throwing arm path.

Consequently, “Results Driven Pitchers” waste their valuable time trying to find a throwing arm path (they can’t control) to produce the results they want.

Much like a dog chasing his tail, if you’re a “Results Driven Pitcher”, until you change your focus from your results to your behaviors, your pitching career goes in circles.

Get Your Behaviors to Produce Your Results

Is Your Pitching Career in a Death Spiral?

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

Death Spirals

When army ants get separated from their main foraging group, they start following one another, the entire group begins walking in a circle, and, when they are completely exhausted, they die.

If you’re a Pitcher who starts their stride then separates their hands, you’re in the same death spiral as these army ants.

Pitching Death Spirals are All About Ineffective Sequencing

Any Pitcher who ends their front leg lift with their weight over their back foot won’t move toward their target until they stride.

If this describes you, the instant you stride your body will use your throwing arm to keep itself in balance.

When you use your throwing arm for balance, your pitching career is consumed with the impossible task of finding a way to generate the same arm slot in every outing on every pitch.

Stop Going in Circles

By ending your front leg lift with your weight balanced over your back foot, you can expect your pitches to travel directly into your intended target, you stop your death spiral and you take your pitching career in a much more productive direction.

The Survey Says … “Pitch Command”

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

A survey of 120+ College Coaches and some Travel Ball, High School and Private Pitching Instructors asked participants to rate the most important pitching-related factors.

When asked to rank these factors in the order of importance, this is their response.

Command – 81%
Movement – 18%
Velocity – 1%

This survey contradicts the myth that velocity is what Coaches want to see. Coaches are looking for Pitchers who can locate their pitches within the strike zone over Pitchers with lights-out velocity.

Lower Body Engagement Drives Command.

Getting a Pitcher’s lower body to drive his results isn’t a conscious action. Lower body engagement is something a Pitching Coach adds to a Pitcher’s current stockpile of skills.

Once added, a Pitcher produces the command that’ll tease influential baseball people to sit up and take notice.

Experience Fastball Command Today

By adding a Pitcher’s lower body to their current delivery, the Pitcher’s body flows into release, a Pitcher’s command becomes much more sustainable and the Pitcher attracts next level attention.

Need better command? Need better lower body involvement? Want to attract next level Coaches? Let’s talk.

The Orchid Hypothesis

Pro Pitching InstitutePro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Even with flaws, any individual’s pitching is as hardy as a dandelion; able to take root just about anywhere and, when ignored, come back year after year.

Anyone can grow a dandelion, but only a Pitching Coach who nurtures their dandelion with neurological, physiological, and psychological science can build the delicate, mysterious orchid called predictable fastball command.

Coaching Today

The notion a Coach can grow an orchid contradicts how most Coaches teach pitching today.

Most Coaches, even Professional Coaches, haven’t taken, don’t take, the time to discover the science behind pitch location. If they did so, the orchid would take over the dandelion as the standard for fastball command.

The Next Generation of Coaches

That’s why Pitchers we work with get so excited and are so appreciative when we show them how easy it is to expect each pitch to travel into their target.

We believe, for the health and welfare of Pitchers everywhere, it’s time for Coaches to take the science behind pitch location more seriously.

By doing so, more Coaches will turn dandelions into the orchids you see at the top of every Big-League depth chart.

Experience Fastball Command Today

We use 5 easily executed, simply presented skills to guarantee fastball command.

Not satisfied with your pitch location. Let’s talk.

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.
