Total Running Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
Most pitchers make throwing another pitch more difficult than it is. There is a simple way to throw any pitch successfully without putting undue stress on your throwing arm or changing your throwing motion to do so. In this Pitching DVD you will learn how to position your wrist and forearm with many different pitches to impart correct rotation on each pitch. Let us simplify the process for you!
If you want to dominate on the mound you must learn how to throw at least three different pitches. There are three keys elements to getting a batter out and becoming successful on the mound; movement, change of speed and location. Without these three fundamentals you will surely fail. In this DVD we show you how to throw seven different pitches that will not only keep hitters off balance, it will keep your opposing teams batting average below .300. That means you will win more games!
Learn how to properly grip and throw the following seven pitches
Four seam fastball: the straight pitch
Two seam fastball: the movement pitch
Split finger fastball: It’s really a changeup
Bonus: 4 Deadly Changeups
In addition to the seven other pitches you will learn; here are a few more changeups you can experiment with and see which one is best for you at this time in your career:
1) Claw Change: This is one of the first changeups we teach our students. Learn the psychological factors when first learning any pitch. Don’t alter your mechanics to throw pitches
2) C-Change: Many pitchers think they know how to throw this pitch effectively. Maybe it works for you right now and that’s great. But are you throwing the C at the glove? The real C-change has wicked movement. We demonstrate how to accomplish that in this section when we discuss the release.
3) Circle Change: Learn the difference between the C-change and the circle change. I think the ultimate goal should be to master the true circle changeup more than any others because of the movement that is created when thrown correctly. This pitch has a screwball type effect and hitters knees buckle when they see it.
4) Nate Barnett’s Special Changeup: Nate Barnett is a George Fox University Hall of Famer. Although he was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his outstanding accomplishments at the plate, he also was a successful pitcher. Imagine that! Nate instructs you how he threw his most successful pitch in college. It can work for you too as it has for many pitchers.
Bonus: Pitching Drill: Learn a pitching drill that will teach you how to throw different pitches, in half the time, without putting undue stress on your throwing arm. Throw hundreds of pitches like this and learn how to “feel” how to throw each pitch effectively. In this segment I demonstrate how to throw the C-change using this drill.
