I'm best know for my work with baseball hitters and pitchers, work that grows out of my interest in Innovation and why it does -- and doesn't -- happen. I've also devoted some time, especially of late, writing about the Catholic clergy abuse crisis and the impact it's had on my life and the lives of others.

Hitting
Andres Torres 2010 World SeriesI'm nobody.

And I've helped transform the swings and careers of multiple major leagues hitters.

With my help...

Most recently, I helped reinvigorate the offense of HSSU, an NAIA baseball team and HBC for whom I was the Hitting Coordinator from February 2016 thru March 2017.

While it kills me to see the HSSU offense regress since I left in 2017, I hope it proves I know what I'm talking about.

Pitching
On the pitching side, I've spent the past two years studying Justin Verlander's pitching mechanics and trying to figure out how to prevent what's happening to pitchers like Alex Reyes...

Philosophy
More is more.

That's what people seem to think when it comes to hitting and pitching instruction.

More drills, more videos, more of everything. All of which take more time to read, view, and process. While that's fun for some, it didn't work for me.

So I take the opposite approach.

Less is more.

I invest significant money -- and, more importantly, time -- in getting to the essence of a subject. To its core. To editing, not writing. I do that to serve people who value their time.

Student of the Game
When I started coaching and working with my kids and their friends, I didn't know anything -- less than nothing, in truth -- so I did what my Big 5 consulting background taught me to do.

I started studying the industry.

That meant benchmarking the best practices of great hitters like...

  • Ted Williams
  • Mickey Mantle
  • Stan Musial
  • Albert Pujols
  • Mike Trout

...and great pitchers like...

  • Nolan Ryan
  • Tom Seaver
  • Mariano Rivera
  • Justin Verlander 
  • Aroldis Chapman

...to see what they did and what made them successful.

Actually.

I say "actually" because I quickly came to understand that what I was taught, and what most people were and are still teaching, was and is not what the best players actually do.

If you want to learn what I discovered and what I taught my kids and now my clients, I offer a series of baseball webBooks, eBooks, and streaming DVDs.

Chris,

Coastal Carolina LogoI appreciate all u do.

I have nothing but great respect for your passion and conviction.

Stay on plane, my friend.

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.

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.

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.
