Pitching is more than physical talent

Finding the answers to these questions is very important. We all have seen extremely physically talented players who never live up to their "potential." And we've all seen less physically gifted players excell to levels no one thought possible. What can explain this?


Be a student of the game

Success at baseball pitching is more than how hard someone can throw, although society wants us to believe otherwise. Learning how to truly pitch requires a broad knowledge of not only the physical aspects of the pitching motion but so much more. It requires an in-depth knowledge of strategy, technique, a basic knowledge of how to play baseball at all baseball positions, and a mental awareness of what skills you as a pitcher possess and how to maximize them.

Think of becoming a pitcher like building a house. A house will crumble unless it has a strong, solid foundation. But you must build upon that foundation a solid internal structure so that it can stand tall. And the outside structure must be strong as well to ward off any harmful external forces. A successful baseball pitcher is built upon:

  1. Knowledge of the position and what its true purpose is
  2. A rock-solid mechanical approach, with help from critical video review
  3. Physical strength gained from functional, specific-to-pitching workouts
  4. Mental strength allowing the pitcher to overcome any situation
