​Mississippi Ranch


  • Focused work on athleticism, balance, strength, explosion, and rotation. 30 minutes of work on the drills, stretches, and warmups we do at each pitching session
  • Included as warmup routine prior to and after each pitching workout
  • Ranch type workouts that specifically target the shoulders, hips, legs, core, small muscle groups, elbow, tendons / ligaments related to pitching. Very pitcher specific

 
Consistency


  • We work together in formulating a comprehensive pitcher development program to improve mechanics, pitches, command, strategy, strength, flexibility, explosiveness, and athleticism
  • We develop our drills that implement current research from ASMI (Dr. James Andrews), Cressey Sports Performance (Eric Cressey), and The Texas Ranch
  • Workouts are progressive. Each workout builds on the previous workout
  • Workouts are individualized per workout. We will veer from our workout to focus on individual needs as identified during the workout. We will recommend individualized “Homework” per pitcher related to identified strengths and weaknesses. Progress and development is dependent on each pitcher doing their workout 5-6 days each week... 1 with us and 4-5 on their own.
  • Ranch workouts are designed to work in conjunction with Pro Pitching workouts



Research and Experienced based


  • American Sports Medical Institute
  • Eric Cressey… President and co-founder of Cressey Sports Performance, with facilities in Hudson, MA and Jupiter, FL. I worked with Eric while pitching coach in Cape Cod and continue to consult with him periodically
  • Research from the Texas and Florida Ranches 
  • 30+ years coaching and instructing pitchers



More Than Lessons
 

  • We don’t do lessons or bullpens, we do workouts that focus on developing sound pitching mechanics and building athleticism, explosion, balance, strength, flexibility, and power. Every workout includes work in the following areas… body warmup / explosion, strength, flexibility / warmup throws / explosive throws / and mound work
  • Our program is designed to prevent future injuries. We do pre-hab work (prevent injuries) instead of re-hab (after an injury). 
  • Our program is designed to develop velocity and power pitching
  • Workouts generally last 1 hour
  • We provide “homework” to be done between workouts and hold our pitchers accountable for doing their work. We guide and instruct our pitchers to take ownership of “their” individual training
  • Recruiting Assistance and Placement
  • No need for a recruiting service. Through our contacts and experience, we promote our pitchers with college coaches and scouts. We also can provide assistance with placement with our younger players on high level travel teams 
  • We train pitchers mentally. We incorporate mental strategies and routines in our workouts that produce mental toughness and enhance performance
  • Closed FB Group Page for pitchers... videos, notes, photos, instruction
  • Optional live videos for pitchers to use for reinforcement, additional learning, and “homework” between weekly workouts.
