567 Dad Book- Free Book
Have you missed your 'moment' with your son? Are you actively missing your moment, or fearing the moment is going to be missed with your son? Listen in as Paul Reddick discusses his new book '567 Dad. Actionable exercises to help you unleash the full potential of your son in baseball.' In this episode we dive into what a real connection is with your son, how to have it, and what not to say.
The 5-6-7 Pitcher with Paul Reddick
I first heard Paul on a non-baseball related podcast. I was impressed with what he was saying from a motivational standpoint, and the tactics he used to create this motivation; both in business and for those that he mentored in baseball. I liked Paul's intensity, and his passion--and I think I like him even more now after this interview.
Paul had already been making baseball performance products when I was first dipping my toes into the info. product market (I was doing lots of research myself for my Arm Care/Recovery program). His programs didn't seem flashy or all too hard to understand...much different from every thing else I was reading. And after talking to him recently, he wants his programs to be simple to understand, and simple to use. Duh, right!?
What I liked all those years ago, when I bought one of his programs for my research, was his "Queen Bee" theory. Basically, if you want to fix a problem, you have to need to tackle it from the root. If you want to change the mechanics of a baseball pitcher you, you change how he/she gets into that faulty position to begin with. If you want to move the beehive that's above your front door, you don't kill or swat the worker bees, you need to get to the Queen bee.
Paul is the real deal. He's a self taught coach (for the past 20+ years), un-biased by the very system that he's trying to change-- one player, one dad, and one coach at a time. Paul cares deeply about the well being of the baseball player and is a master when it comes down to uncovering motivation behind WHY and HOW the baseball player performs the way they do. He uncovers this with a system he calls the 5-6-7 Pitcher.
In this episode we get into:
The 567 Pitcher....and learn arguably the most important sticking points in your relationship with your son/daughter/players, that once resolved offers limitless performance benefits (for both of you!)
Why the 1st sign of injury is loss of pitch command.
Why you don't really understand pitch counts, and why they don't make sense for everyone...er...anyone!
Why a whole team approach (players, coaches AND parents) is needed to keep the pitcher healthy.
If you know how to properly lift weights, you should know when to pull-the-plug on your pitchers to save their arm.
and much, much more!

Must listen to for the baseball player
Amazing knowledge being shared in Chris's show. I'm heading into my freshman year of college baseball and listen to these shows ALL THE TIME! Truly unreal how great this podcast is, keep them coming Chris!
Great guests and information! Definitely worth the time to garner some great information relating to baseball performance.
Love that each podcast covers a different aspect of baseball (Pitching, hitting, arm care, mental game, etc.) This is definitely one of, if not the best source of baseball knowledge I have come across. Dr. McKenzie without a doubt knows his stuff and he also brought in a ton of other professionals that are GENIUS' in their fields as well A+++
