Episode 2: How Tyler Matzek Beat the Yips Losing Control

    • Sports

Today the Atlanta Braves’ Tyler Matzek is a World Series Champion and one of the top relief pitchers in Major League Baseball. But just a few years ago, Tyler Matzek was ready to walk away from the game, and not because he was ready to retire, but due to a bad case of the yips. Matzek had tried everything he’d heard of to fix his throwing, and nothing was working–nothing, that is, until he met Jason Kuhn, a mental performance coach and fellow yips-sufferer. Matzek’s work with Kuhn would be the catalyst that initiated a remarkable comeback, and on this episode of “Losing Control” you’ll not only hear how Tyler Matzek got his pitching back, you’ll get a behind the scenes look at the process that keeps him at the top of his game.
