The Top 4 Ways Pitchers Become Disconnected

2021-04-16T18:59:00+00:00

Throwing at a superior level is about being “connected”. When a delivery is connected all the body parts are acting in timing and synergy with one another. Every part is playing its proper role and performing in concert with all the other body parts…and those parts are operating around a stable spine.

What Is a Growth Plate Injury? What Do Our Baseball Training Programs Do To Fix Them?

2021-04-16T19:01:06+00:00

Coaches at our baseball training camps know that, when you have a soft tissue injury (UCL, labrum, rotor cuff) that doesn’t result in catastrophic failure, it’s very important during the rehab process that you provide controlled stress to organize the healing tissue along the line of resistance.

How NOT Long Tossing or Throwing Weighted Balls In Baseball Training Programs Could Hurt You

2021-04-16T19:04:41+00:00

And here we go again. The long toss and weighted ball police are back at it. The study from 2011 "Max Distance Throwing Changes Mechanics and Puts More Stress On The Arm.” The longstanding argument against long toss is as follows: 1) It increases joint stress in the elbow and the shoulder, and 2) throwing mechanics change with increased distance of throws. Both are true…And that is exactly why I like long toss… as a training tool.

Arm Health: Beyond Pitch Counts… And All The Usual Suspects

2021-04-16T19:07:10+00:00

At the Florida Baseball ARMory and in my physical therapy practice, not a week goes by that I don’t see an injured thrower who’s parents report that he had thrown very little prior to getting hurt. “I don’t how this happened,” they say. “He hasn’t pitched very much at all.” Does that sound like a workload problem to you?

Pitcher’s Funny Bone Ain’t So Funny

2021-04-16T19:11:38+00:00

Any time a pitcher complains of pain on the inside of the elbow, you worry about damage to the UCL — the dreaded Tommy John surgery. But sometimes it’s not the Tommy John ligament at all. Here is a rudimentary field test to see if you might have damage to the UCL. It’s called “The milking test.”

Lance

2021-04-16T19:13:42+00:00

As Lance and his mom walked away, I came up with one more penetrating thought: I suck! Ever since that day with Lance and his mom, I have made a pact with myself. I will meet every player exactly where he is physically, mentally, and emotionally and do everything in my power to help him improve himself as ballplayer and a person.

Why We Don’t Run Long Distances

2021-04-16T19:21:21+00:00

Unless your team is really bad at managing rundowns, the longest pay in baseball is an inside the park homerun, takes about 14-16 seconds to complete, and the only guy who has to run that far is the guy who hit the ball. Everyone else is about 4 seconds or less and a pitch takes about 1.5 seconds.
