Editorial Reviews


I wish I would have had access to some of Jeff s training methods as a young player. I know I would have had a much stronger and accurate arm. The information is presented in a way that even if you aren't a polished coach, you should be able to help your young players develop throwing mechanics that will work for the rest of their playing careers. As a former major league player and little league coach, I highly recommend this book for all coaches through the high school level. --Bill Buckner, Boston Red Sox

This book expresses all of the basic mechanics I use, and would teach to any of the young people I instruct. All of the strength and conditioning exercises displayed in this book are paramount to strengthening and maintaining an athletic body and a healthy arm. It is a great step-by-step guide to follow for any parent or coach wishing to teach the proper mechanics of pitching to young aspiring players. --Rommie Lewis, Pitcher, Toronto Blue Jays

For over 30 years I worked with some of the most talented athletes in Major League Baseball. As one of the team doctors for the Seattle Mariners I developed a love for the game of baseball which still exists to this day, and my concern for the health and well being of our players has always been a top priority. Rick Griffin (Seattle Mariners Athletic Trainer) and I have worked for years to try and instill in our athletes the importance of proper training to improve flexibility, and strength of both the arm and the core muscles. Our techniques changed some over the years, but the vision was always there to develop a routine that would include the following: Five Points of Emphasis 1. Flexibility 2. Strength 3. Muscle Balance 4. Endurance 5. Technique Jeff touches on all of these important areas in his book and I would encourage all parents and coaches to pay attention to these details. Their kids will benefit from these teachings, and enjoy the experiences baseball can offer. --Dr. Keith Peterson, Seattle Mariners Team Doctor Emeritus

More About the Author

Jeff Anderson has played the game of baseball at every level from the youth leagues up through the professional ranks and has coached at all levels except the professional baseball. For the past 30 years Jeff has been developing his teaching technique so that even the least experienced coach and parent can teach their young players the correct mechanics involved in pitching. Jeff has received rave reviews from professional players and coaches, college coaches, high school coaches, and numerous youth league administrators for his concise and easy to read manuscript on pitching.

Jeff has broken down the movements of pitching and explained all the details so that you the coach can simply plug in the material. Through the years it became apparent that just teaching throwing though was doing his students an injustice and he began to develop the whole body in order to help protect the pitchers throwing arm. You'll find drills, and exercises meant to strengthen the legs, core and shoulders for players of all age levels.
