Pitching – Science is changing the way the game is being played. Behavior is a result of a belief system. Changing belief systems is a process, but an open mind is key for transformation. Due to my skill set, I fully understand these science-based changes and can pick and choose what can help an individual pitcher. Perhaps I will even change some belief systems along the way.
Math / Analytics – Modeling real-world data with functions and having the number sense to understand what is viable/useable is something I excel in. I have a unique science/sport blend. Using data the wrong way is a pet peeve of mine. Bad data can be worse than no data at all.
Performance And Development – How can you bring your best self to your next event? I have spent my adult life developing a systematic way to do this. In my world, it is helping pitchers be their best on the next pitch.
Biomechanics – High speed-video and movement technology have taken the guesswork out of mechanics coaching. No longer can coaches say something and use the pitch result as proof. The details are in the data. However, it should be stated that the great pitchers of the past did something right, and that needs to be embraced.
Technology – Trackman, Rapsodo, Edertronic, etc., have had a tremendous impact in pitch design and in understanding where “your stuff plays.” I have a keen interest in technology as it relates to baseball. What is the next big thing?
Teaching – A good teacher not only is an expert in their subject, but they have the ability to explain difficult concepts in a way that their students can understand and apply. This is an art. This is extremely significant.
I currently work for an MLB team in baseball operations and on the field as a MiLB Pitching Coach.
I am not actively looking for work; however, I get approached to talk to companies about professional development within their niche and am generally available in late fall and winter to do a keynote presentation.
