When it comes to baseball, I'm nobody.
Yet I've helped transform the swings, and careers, of a
number of major leaguers, including...
And helped reinvigorate the offense of
HSSU, a college (NAIA) baseball team for whom I was the
Hitting Coordinator from February 2016 through the 2017 season.

a rough start to the season, by helping him understand
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 (AC and E&Y) taught me to do.
I started studying the industry.

- Mickey Mantle
- Stan Musial
- Albert Pujols
...and great pitchers like...
- Nolan Ryan

- Justin Verlander
...to see what they did and what made them successful.
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
I appreciate all u do.
I have nothing but great respect for your passion and conviction.
Stay on plane, my friend.

DOMINANT & DURABLE
While I spend a
lot of time thinking about pitching injuries, I'm just
as interested in velocity as you are.

So, why are some pitchers both dominant and durable

Is it due to more than just

FREE 10-MINUTE CLINICS
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
