CONGRATS MARK TRUMBO!
Mark Trumbo's Hitting MechanicsCongratulations to client Mark Trumbo on winning the 2016 MLB home run title. My Power Hitting Mechanics webbook and accompanying ebooks and flipbooks helped him improve his ability to hit for both power and average. My Mark Trumbo Hitting Diary explains how.

MAJOR LEAGUE CREDENTIALS
Major league hitters who I have helped get to the big leagues, or improve their performance, include...

I also consulted on the swings of several Cardinals hitters during August and September 2016...

  • Matt Holliday
  • Jhonny Peralta
  • Stephen Piscotty

I continue to work with prospects. I only charge my clients when they reach the major league level.

Contact me to learn more.

THE EPIDEMIC
The Epidemic
My focus of late has been on identifying the root causes of the Tommy John surgery and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome epidemic. That starts with three common, but dangerous, movement patterns...

Tragically, they are being sold as proper pitching mechanics but, in truth, they tend to create a severe problem with pitchers...

...that I call...

...and are the root cause of the injury problems of pitchers like...

GREAT NEWS FOR ELBOWS!
Matt Harvey's Pitching MechanicsDr. Glenn Fleisig of ASMI has come to agree with me that, at a minimum, there is no good reason to teach throwers and pitchers to point the ball at second base, a movement that I call the Tommy John Twist. As a result, he has recommended that USA Baseball change how they teach throwing and pitching.

FREE 10-MINUTE CLINICS
Increasingly, instructors seem to believe more is more; that to stand out, you have to overwhelm people with information and drills. The more I work with both youth coaches and college players, the more I'm finding less is more. That's the logic behind my 10-minute...

It's also the logic behind all of my hitting and pitching products.

DOMINANT & DURABLE
While I spend a lot of time thinking about pitching injuries, I also spend a lot of time thinking about two questions.

Comparison of Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver, Matt Harvey, and Jose Fernandez

Harvey, Seaver, Fernandez, and Ryan

Why are some pitchers both dominant and durable while others can't stay healthy? Is it due to more than just luck?

JEFF PASSAN, THE ARM & TIMING
Jeff Passan's The ArmWith the release of the hatchet job that is Jeff Passan's The Arm, I have put together my thoughts about the experience of being part of The Arm. Contrary to what Passan would have you believe, key to it is the topic I've focused on since 2007 and that you should as well...

WORLD SERIES PROVEN RESULTS
Andres Torres Home RunIn addition to coaching hitting and pitching at the college level, I have a number of clients in the major leagues. Andres Torres was literally my first client and put up 6.5 fWAR in 2010. He is shown hitting a home run during the 2010 World Series.

Tommy Pham 2015.10.9 Home RunMost recently, I worked with Tommy Pham of the St. Louis Cardinals, shown here hitting a home run to deep left field during Game 1 of the 2015 NLDS.

ELEVATOR PITCH ESSENTIALS
I have long been interested in innovation and entrepreneurship and have worked for a series of software start-ups as a result. Drawing upon these experiences, Elevator Pitch Essentials explains how to get your point across in two minutes or less.

How to Get
Your Point Across in
Two Minutes
or Less

You can buy Elevator Pitch Essentials via my web site. My Elevator Pitch primer is a good place to start if you are unfamiliar with the concept of an elevator pitch.

THE PARADOX OF PAIN
I am in the process of writing a second book entitled The Paradox Of Pain that explains the critical -- but too often overlooked -- relationship between pain, change, and innovation.
