Through good mechanics your pitchers will produce more strikes.

Randy Mazey, with more than 15 years of coaching experience at the Division I level, gives a head-to-toe demonstration on how to establish proper mechanics, and develop the ability to repeat that delivery through every pitch. Coach Mazey addresses three fundamentals of pitching mechanics: balance, direction and finish, and relates the fundamentals to each part of the body.

Learn how the head, shoulders, arms, hands, hips and legs work together at each stage of a pitch. See live pitching mechanics in action as Mazey provides a frame-by-frame video analysis of his athletes exemplifying both good and bad mechanics.

Mazey identifies the five most common mechanical problems seen at all levels of competition, and explains how they affect a pitch. He runs his TCU athletes through five drills that work specifically on correcting the common problems of head tilting, shoulder tilting, throwing across the body, over rotating and falling off the finish.

If you have good balance, direction and finish, the ball will go where you want it to go.

Increase your pitching velocity this season!

Randy Mazey, who's pitching staff at TCU finished the 2008 season with a 3.63 ERA (fifth in Division I), identifies four areas that aid velocity - Linear movement, Finger placement, Large muscle strength and Rotation - and demonstrates simple, yet effective drills that will build each area in your pitcher. In a frame-by-frame video analysis of his athletes pitching, Coach Mazey presents you with examples of how leg strength, hip rotation and timing will aid your staff in developing greater velocity in their pitches.

Without the use of a state-of-the-art weight room, Mazey demonstrates simple exercises that can be done anywhere and require minimal equipment, yet deliver maximum velocity. Mazey shows you how to improve velocity by simulating the pitching motion in conditioning exercises, including a long toss drill that can build arm speed and affirm the proper release point of the pitch. He also discusses the importance of implementing rest into your pitching program.

In addition, a series of stretch band arm exercises are demonstrated that can improve arm and shoulder strength, keep pitchers healthy and mechanically sound and increase velocity over time.

By using these simple shoulder and core exercises you will see an increase in your pitching staffs' velocity, which should translate to more quality starts from your staff.
