The truth is, most amateur coaches have only a vague idea when it comes to developing a pitcher's arsenal.
And with all the different opinions on the "right technique" for throwing a fastball, drop ball, or rise ball out there (not to mention concerns over arm health and safety) it's almost impossible to figure out on your own.
But here's the bad news. You're the coach. People expect you to know this stuff. And the pressure is on.
Your pitchers are desperate to improve and need your help.
Their parents are impatiently watching from the sidelines.
And your competition is ready to jump all over your weak pitchers and embarrass your team if you give them the chance.
The good news is - developing an arsenal of "go-to" pitches isn't as hard as it looks.
With the right technique... the right coaching tips... and the right developmental drills... even the rawest beginner can become a dominant force on the pitcher's mound in no time at all.
But - like most "real" coaches in the trenches - you don't have time to read through dusty old textbooks on the "Science of Pitching," or attend some overpriced coaching clinic halfway across the state.
That's OK. This is what I do, so help is on the way.
