“Specializing in Pitching Development, Arm Care, Throwing Programs and Team Consulting.”
I pitched professionally for 15 years and I have learned many skills to improve performance, but the foundation of my success came from three principals:
1. Mental and physical preparation
2. Unquestioned work ethic
3. Willingness to learn
Preparation is the key. Whether it's studying for a test, getting ready for the holidays or warming up for an athletic event. Preparing properly takes away unexpected surprises. I educate players on preparation and being able to use all their skills as efficiently as possible to create and build routine.
Proper warm-up, stretching and understanding of the games needed skills will make these players more confident on the field and allow them to showcase their talent at their highest level. Developing a solid foundation of self-discipline and the understanding of what it takes to be great.
Success is achieved through confidence. Confidence is built through preparation, hard work and self-discipline. The game of baseball is tough enough to play on its own, so my job is to simplify and eliminate the unnecessary. Always remain positive and learn from the failures.
Work ethic is derived from an athletes will to be self-disciplined. Do you work harder when no one is watching? Accountability of yourself and your teammates drives success.
The ability to "Control what you can Control" is a tool I live by each day. In baseball, you can't change the weather, the umpire or even what teammates do, but if YOU prepare yourself the right way, these outside factors won't affect you.
