The rocker is one of the simplest drills you can do to work on rotating out of glute load instead of pushing. There’s virtually unlimited variations. It’s a flexible drill. I have him using a ‘King of the Hill’ to give him feedback when he’s loading correctly.

How do you increase tempo the right way? Just moving faster isn’t the answer... Build lots of hip stability. Without stability, you won’t be able to increase tempo without compensation somewhere in your delivery. Stability allows access to your full engine.

Take a look at his back foot. Notice how ankle eversion makes it possible to hold the ground longer. This improves his direction & energy transfer towards the target. Rather than popping heel up right away, he stays on inside of back foot & rotates from there.

“Throw in a hallway” Simple drill to work on direction & getting your energy going toward home plate. Rotating in a tight window.

Jackson Ertz is a lot more efficient. He’s simplified his direction by cleaning up his load. He can be a starter at the D-1 level right away. He fills up the zone, holds runners well & fields his position. Currently at Mission College. 6’8, 235lbs 89-92mph

Focus on simplifying your delivery. Development is often addition by subtraction. Limiting inefficient movements. ⁣ 1)Load Phase (drift, & drop/hinge)⁣ 2)Explode Phase (rotate into firm leg, trunk stays closed) ⁣ 3)Drive/Finish Phase (throw w/intent)⁣

When I write a program, I work backwards. I start at the end goal of each month & reverse program from there. It’s an approach I’ve had success w/for 8 years. It’s like running a maze backwards. Makes it easier to see the big picture. Minimizes mistakes.

A fast tempo is key. He’s around 1 second from the time he picks leg up, to the time his front foot hits the ground. That being said, just moving faster without adequate stability will exaggerate bad patterns. Focus on improving stability before increasing tempo.

Cutter tips: • Go to FB grip, then move index & middle finger together touching to the outer half of the ball (lots of grip variations) • Stay BEHIND the ball on the outer half • Pull down hard to create some side spin • Play with middle finger pressure

A common SL that my guys use; think about a standard 2-seam fastball grip, from there move your fingers touching together to the outer half of the ball, middle finger on outside seam. • Pull down on the side of the ball •”Chop” diagonally through the zone

Most pitchers I work w/have adequate mobility to throw hard. It’s a lack of stability that’s holding them back. I like the water filled ball to improve stability throughout the delivery. It’s simple & it’s helped lots of my guys. It’s filled to 6lbs. Very light.

Pitchers want an A+ arm but their report card looks like, •Sleep: D •Training: C- •Nutrition: F •Skill Work: B+ •Mental Health: C You have to excel in all your classes if you want an A+ arm. Here’s an example of a guy whose report card looks tremendous.

He’s not perfect, that’s why we’re working on it 😉 This is harder than it looks.
