Select baseball has been taking a beating over the past 4-5 years.


When injury rates to MLB pitchers began to rise to epidemic levels, the reflex from MLB officials and other "experts" in the medical and baseball communities was to isolate "overuse" at young ages as the only possible explanation for arm pain and injury.

They claimed the travel baseball industry was at fault for arm pain and injury. They blamed coaches and parents for recklessly ignoring recommended pitch counts and maliciously sacrificing young arms in pursuit of their own personal ego fulfillment.

I coached travel baseball and gave pitching lessons at a high level for many years. I met a lot of really good coaches. No matter how competitive it was, I never saw anyone intentionally put a child at risk just to increase velocity or improve his game. While I didn't always agree with their methods, most seemed to have the best interest and long term development of their players as their main goal.

This obsession with pushing players to increase velocity and improve overall at the expense of their health has never been as common of a problem as these “experts” presented it to be. So, if pushiness isn’t the main cause of young players’ arm pain in pitching lessons, what is?

Arm Pain Is Not The Fault Of Pushy Parents & Coaches It’s The Fault Of Improper Technique


More often than not, the cause of arm pain is improper throwing. Even the smallest flaw in technique (that’s tough for even coaches to catch) can cause serious pain after a player throws this way thousands of times year after year. This is where a player can benefit from specialized pitching lessons with a coach who has expertise in arm mechanics.

This type of coaching during pitching lessons can eliminate the pain that holds players back. As an elite travel ball player, parent, or coach, I'm sure you share the goal to increase velocity and develop your player's arm without risking injury. That's where I come in.

Increase Velocity & Improve Command Without Arm Pain


I am a physical therapist in private practice specializing in the management, development, and rehabilitation of elite throwing athletes. I team up with other coaches to help players increase velocity, and improve command, while eliminating arm pain during games and pitching lessons.

For over 23 years, I’ve studied the variables that contribute to arm pain and injury, and I’ve developed a world class process to eliminate arm pain, keep pitchers off the operating table, and even to help them return to action at the highest level if they have undergone surgical intervention.

An injury or a history of arm pain doesn’t have to mean giving up on your goal to increase velocity and become a better overall player. When athletes are liberated from the shackles of arm pain, they are free to develop power without fear of getting hurt… and that’s when the magic really happens.

We are located at 1411 S Wiggins Rd, Plant City, FL on 18 acres of beautiful land. We have a 120’ x 50’ turfed training center featuring 5 throwing lanes, a full weight training gym, a yoga studio, and a practicing physical therapy clinic on site with all the leading edge technology your athlete will everIMG_4216 need. We also have 5 outdoor regulation bullpens, a 10’ x 16’ concrete plyo wall, and a 400’ x 80’ long toss lane. As you can tell, we are set up to optimize our athletes’ recovery and performance through every phase of progression.

What We’ve Accomplished:


Over the past 8 years we have helped hundreds of athletes completely eliminate arm pain and, at the same time, increase velocity and increase hitting power. Many of them came back better than they were before they were injured!

Over 140 athletes have been able to increase velocity to reach the 90 mph threshold off the mound. Several MLB clients consult with me regularly and fly me out to help them during the season anytime they experience arm pain.

Increase Velocity With Quality Over Quantity


You see, the common approach to managing arm pain or injury is to rest, do some physical therapy to reduce “inflammation”, and then gradually return to throwing. This approach has a major flaw in that it assumes all injuries are due to overuse. We have discovered through years of research that, while workload is a variable to consider, it is being given far too much weight.

In our experience helping players increase velocity how you throw and hit, is far more important than how much you throw and hit. Other contributing factors are: how your connective tissue is prepared, your physical constraints in joint mobility and stability, your training habits, your recovery plan, and your sleep, nutrition, and hydration status.

How Our Pitching Lessons & Workouts Eliminate Arm Pain


Our Baseball Ranch Assessment Tool (BRAT) is the first of it’s kind and combines a thorough physical/medical exam. After the exam, we’ll do a meticulous high-speed video analysis of an athlete’s biomechanical throwing patterns to create the template for hyper-individualized, customized training plan. This plan will help you increase velocity, improve commend and eliminate all possible contributors/risk factors for arm pain or injury.

Once inefficiencies or limitations are identified, it’s a matter of implementing a proven process to shift those variables to the athlete’s favor and teaching the athlete to implement them, not just during pitching lessons, but forever.

We assign and instruct corrective exercises to improve all contributory physical constraints, we create a healthy and effective recovery and nutrition plan, and we employ a variety of corrective throwing drills to elicit safer, more efficient movement patterns without compromising velocity, command, or “stuff”.

As you matriculate through the process, you’ll begin to feel the pain in your arm decrease, you’ll increase velocity, your strike percentage will improve, and you'll become a better player overall. What’s not to like about that?

Here’s what the parents of one recent attendee had to say about the camp:


“I run a pitcher development program and teach pitching lessons just outside of Philadelphia. We are doing everything that you are doing i.e. pain assessment, decel, connection, functional strength, mobility, etc... But I know that there is NO ONE in the country (world) doing what you are doing in the way that you do it. You guys function at an unparalleled level. You engage your students at an emotional level, (key to motor learning) create a super-charged environment of excellence, and then pull the boys through the wormhole. What we find on the other side is life-altering opportunity. Untold thanks for identifying my son's constraints & unlocking his potential. He has never been so enthused in training. I will forever sing your praises...

Ever Grateful”

Jim D - Philadelphia, PA

Here’s what 2 injured college players said about their experience (because of NCAA rules, we cannot divulge their full names or photos).


“I came to the Florida Baseball Ranch this past summer while working back from Tommy John surgery looking to regain/increase velocity and throw pain-free. Everyone there was extremely knowledgeable and motivating. They helped me increase velocity higher than it was before surgery, and I am now pain free. Also, my command improved a ton. I definitely recommend any pitcher who is rehabbing or simply trying to get better to come to the Florida Baseball Ranch for pitching lessons and training.”

Colin P. NCAA Division 1 Pitcher

“Training at the Florida Baseball Ranch was by far the best decision I have ever made for my baseball career.

Like everyone else after tommy John surgery, I was worried about how my velocity and command would turn out. There are always a multitude of unanswered questions after any surgery, especially as a pitcher. How will I perform after I come back? Will I have my same stuff? Will I increase velocity? What will happen to my off speed? How can I prevent it from happening again? What can I do to make my arm more durable? Not to mention all the other doubts you have in the back of your head during rehab. Randy Sullivan and the Florida Baseball Ranch answered every one of my questions and then some. The program and pitching lessons they designed not only allowed me throw pain free, but it also made me a better pitcher at every aspect of my game. Not only did I come back sitting 91 to 92, but I was also throwing 75 to 80% strikes in my bullpens. For anyone who has had TJ, you know that's huge!

If you want to play at the next level, and your willing to grind and work your ass off, there's no better place to go. Like I said, it was the best decision I ever could have made.”

Cody B. – NCAA Division 1 pitcher
