    S8E12 - What to do before you make an adjustment to a pitcher's delivery

    In this episode, I talk about the importance of looking at how well a pitcher hits his "spots" in his delivery before you decide to adjust something that doesn't look right to you. You will get tips on how to make this determination.
    Coach Larry Owens and I also talk about the complicated issue of the pitcher's position on the rubber (arm-side or glove-arm side) and the latest new trend where catchers are setting-up with one knee on the ground.

Baseball arm care at it’s most eccentric

These guys are fyn to listen to, as they geek out on pitching and arm care. I never quite know whether they could cut out 9/10ths of the podcast and still get the points across, butif it did it may lose some of it’s hypnotic charm.
