Coach — I hope all is well.  After week 11, I feel stronger and believe things are coming together…but I’m not quite there yet.  I’m close, but the break through for unlocking what I have inside has not yet happened.  Below are the url’s of vids taken during a BP last week.  In going over the vids, I know a few things that I need to fix: 1) I was forcing a high 3/4 arm slot when I know my natural arm slot has always been low 3/4; 2) I started too far to the RT side of the rubber causing me to throw across my body; 3) my ankle kick is off because I was going up on the ball of my foot vs. pushing and rolling to the inside part of my foot.  There are more things, but these are what I saw, coach.

Hey Coach Brent — hope all is well!  My dad told me that he thought I still had an unused analysis or two from my 3X program, so I figured it was time for me to ask if you could do another analysis on my mechanics.  As you know, I completed the 3X program…spent my summer at USC working with Coach Tom House…have been training for a month with my college team at New Mexico Military Institute (under Head Coach Chris Cook and Pitching Coach Rowdy Hardy)… I’ve been really working hard on both my mechanics and conditioning.

Anyway, Coach, we had our first fall game this weekend – each of the PO’s had an inning.  I did pretty well…with my FB sitting at about 86 mph.  It took me under 6 min. to get the 3 outs (11 pitches…8 strikes…3 balls).

Batter 1 – 5 pitches (FO)

Batter 2 – 1 pitch (ground ball error to 1B) * 1st pitch strike

Batter 3 – 4 pitches (K) * 1st pitch strike

Batter 4 – 1 pitch (FO) * 1st pitch strike

 

I still have a way to go, but everything seems to be falling in place and heading in the right direction – velo is up and increasing, accuracy is pretty much back, and movement is returning to “filthy status”.  My upper half is also getting back to where it feels natural and good (I always was a low ¾ guy), but somehow got off track in HS…  My lower half is also becoming more explosive as I begin my first movement towards home plate (but still needs some improvement to make sure I don’t lose any of the ground force production I generate).  When I started training at USC this summer, my timing was off mainly because I was moving way too slow.  Once I started moving quicker, most of what I have been working on started to fall into place.  Coach Tom House would say, “ GFF”  (which meant to Go F!@# Faster)” – which is pretty good nickname and helps me not to forget!

Coach, here are two url’s:

1)      3B view of a slider thrown for strike 3

 

 

2)      Front view of the entire inning

 

 

Thanks for the assistance, Coach!

George good to hear things are going well. You have used the analysis that came with your 3X Pitching Velocity Program. I hope you are still training through it. Don’t forget the level 2 and pre and in-season programs.

Just looking at your video you are not peak ground reaction forces into front foot strike. This is why your front leg is not that dynamic. You need to get more force into your front leg. Keep us up to date on progress.

P1060776.JPGP1060785.JPGCoach Brent – I had my second outing of my college fall season today and when I was throwing my pre-game BP, something seemed to click with regards to my drive leg and my knee as I was loading and going into foot strike (the lift and thrust phase).  I think the “Torsion” and keeping my knee turned out a little longer might be my main issue with my “force production” and a more dynamic front leg at foot strike – proper triple extension right before foot strike.  Of course I need to work on the feeling the knee doing it right in my BP’s before I can really internalize it and actualize it on the mound during games, but I was sort of toying with it on a few pitches during today’s game.

 

Here’s what I have from the first look — It took me 7 min. and 15 sec to blow through the batters in two innings (6 outs):

 

 

1st two FB at 87mph with FB sitting mid 80’s today.  It took 3 min. for me to get the 3 outs (10 pitches…8 strikes…2 balls) in the 1st Inning and 4.15 min. to get 3 outs (9 pitches…4 strikes…5 balls) in the 2ed Inning.  I only needed 19 pitches to complete two innings.

Inning 1

Batter 1 – 4 pitches (FO) * 1st pitch strike

Batter 2 – 4 pitches (GO) * 1st pitch strike

Batter 3 – 2 pitches (FO) * 1st pitch strike

 

Inning 2

Batter 1 – 4 pitches (FO)

Batter 2 – 1 pitch (G Hit single…bounced over my head and 2B could not field it clearly.  The AstroTurf field at UNM is sure fast!)

Batter 3 – 4 pitches (FO / Double play)

 

The Velo point of this post is that I’m steadily getting faster with each little tweak…up 1 mph to 87 from last weekend’s game.  And I feel like I’m throwing even harder in my BP.  I’m really anxious to see what you see when the latest analysis is complete…I’m really feeling good because this time, I feel I’m close!

Respectfully, George Max
