Today marks a very special day as we are celebrating the 100th episode of the IMPACT Show. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it with someone who has been a mentor & friend of mine for over 20-years...and is a living legend. As a matter of fact, there is no one man in my career who has IMPACTED my training philosophy and methodology more than this man. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Coach Tom House.
Tom House has been considered by many to be the “father of modern pitching mechanics.” He is the world’s foremost expert in pitching and throwing mechanics and works with the likes of Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and many other elite NFL QB’s. In this episode, we talk about life, training, mindset, physical recovery strategies, and what it takes to be the best in the world at what you do.
Folks, it’s episodes like this that make love doing the podcast. I know this episode is going to positively IMPACT a lot of people. Episode #100 is pure magic as it combines a ton of life wisdom along with 50+ years of career wisdom. Without further ado, I’m proud to share one of my dear friends and mentors with you today… Coach Tom House!!

More About Tom House:
Tom pitched at the professional level from 1967 to 1979 for the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Seattle Mariners. He coached from 1980 to 1997 for the Houston Astros, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, and Chiba Lotte Marines (Japan), as well as in Latin America.

Tom’s real-life character was featured in the movie “Million Dollar Arm.” That movie was a Hollywood hit about 2 Indian baseball players who came over to the US to train with Tom and get signed by Major League Baseball within one year. Despite never having touched a baseball before, Tom trained them and both signed professional baseball contracts within 9-months.
Tom now devotes his time to coaching throwing his athletes, doing research, and living life to the fullest.
