What Makes You Different? | The Mental Game | TopVelocity Baseball Forum
August 28, 2011
My post on the topic “Throwing a bullpen in front of college coaches in 4 hours..” https://www.topvelocity.net/for…..n-4-hours/ sparked me to ask this question.
On this website we are all friends and we are all family — At the same time, every one of you is trying to make it to the top. So the question is simple:
You’re doing the same training and using the same programs, what separate YOU from everyone else here??

Great questions! You could also take it from a different perspective. What makes the people HERE different, is that they are HERE. In other words- the players, parents, and coaches that are following this program are in a very small minority compared to the traditional pitching instruction that is out there. What you get here is very different that what you see in LL, HS, College, and even the pros. So the people in the 3x program are in a select group. And the people who stick it out are in an even smaller group.
Coach Robo made a great point to me one time that applies to anyone here:
“Scott, you and Brad are going through a process of improvement that not one coach in a hundred would understand or could help you do. And it’s still a long, hard process. But, imagine how many pitchers are out there completely wasting their time trying to get better doing things that don’t make any sense at all.”
THIS is what gives everyone here an edge. And I can confirm that most of the prominent coaches in my area have no idea what hip and shoulder separation is, never mind how to teach it. Current instruction in my area is:
1-Stay tall and balanced
2- Long distance running (poles)/cardio
3- Band Work
4- No weight training (maybe some light high rep shoulder routines)
And Brent, please bear with me:
5- Long Toss (and even more destructive version than Alan Jaegars program). Yep the only thing the traditional community seems to be embracing is long toss. And they even get that wrong. So lets see how many more arm injuries occur over the next 5 years or how many more pitchers see their velocity decline like barry zito.

What separates the best? Great question.
- Desired Outcome. What are you looking for out of baseball and being a pitcher?
- Motivation. Why do you want to be a pitcher?
- Specific Action Plan. What are you willing to do to achieve your desired outcome?
- Work Ethic. Will you do the work it takes to execute you plan?
- Faith. Do you honestly believe in the very depth of your soul that you want to be great and do you believe in your plan.
A specific action plan for mechanics and strength and conditioning is what Brent is trying to teach and share.
The question is do you have a plan?
If you have the desire, motivation, work ethic and faith then Brent’s program will work for anybody.
Take away any of the those 4 qualities and No Program is going to work for you.
Stop and Think about it, those 4 qualities are the mental side of pitching.

The best understand that the mental side is what separates them from the rest.
Post game evaluation
Test. Track. Tweak
The best are always working to get better.
their work ethic is who they are.
That’s how you tell. Their actions speak louder than their words.
