Andres Torres 2010 World SeriesI'm nobody.

And I've helped transform the swings, and careers, of a number of major leagues hitters, including...

And helped reinvigorate the offense of HSSU, an NAIA baseball team for whom I was the Hitting Coordinator from February 2016 thru April 2017.

On the pitching side, I helped Adam Wainwright get back on track, after a rough start to the 2017 season, by helping him understand Timing in baseball pitchers. That understanding grew out of my study of how Justin Verlander creates velocity and how that differs from what so many teach.

I hurt my shoulder pitching when I was a kid, and wasn't able to play the game at a high level, so I'm not at all popular among the baseball establishment. They can't believe I know what I know and do what I've done since I "never played." In fact, I've been accused, by fellow college coaches, of at best confusing young ballplayers, when I'm not lying.

Whatever.

I've worked my butt off to learn what I have, and get where I am, and the only thing that really matters to me is that my clients are successful.

And they are VERY successful.

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 (AC and E&Y) 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.
