Videos My Guys Have Posted
In the summer of 2007, eight of my guys traveled to Colorado to pitch in a summer college baseball league.  I received few reports, except how, without Bill Peterson's and a young catcher's expert coaching, they could not even play catch.  However, earlier this year, one of my guys posted a video that showed his pitching.  This video told the truth about how well my guys pitched.

In the spring of 2008, Dr. Glenn Fleisig telephoned me to ask that we work together to eliminate baseball pitching injuries.  I told him that, because no baseball pitcher I have trained has ever suffered a pitching injury, a good first step would be to analyze my baseball pitching motion.
A couple of months later, I piled my guys in a rental car and drove non-stop from Zephyrhills, FL to Birmingham, AL.  After a quick night's sleep, we arrive at the American Sports Medicine Institute's lab.  Dr. Fleisig and his staff took 250 frames per second video of them with their eight camera setup.
Then, unbeknownst to me, Mike Farrenkopf posted the video of his baseball pitching motion.

Once again, without my knowledge, in response to questions that bloggers on BaseballFever.com and DrivelineMechanics.com, my guys have made and posted several videos.  For their kindness, both websites have banned my guys from posting their comments.  Nevertheless, they continue to ignore these fools and post more videos.

In the 1980's, to teach my baseball players how to drive down their acromial line, I had them stand at home plate with their acromial line pointing at third or first base depending on whether they were right or left-handed in my Pickoff body position.  To throw to second base, I asked them to keep their feet planted and reverse rotate their hips and shoulders to point at second base while their pendulum swung their throwing arm up to driveline height and throw the baseball to second base.
Because, in this body position, they could not take the baseball laterally behind their body, they had to drive down their acromial line.  To make sure that they did not pull their pitching upper arm across the front of their body, we watched their pitching arm to make certain that they kept their entire arm behind their body.
Again, unbeknowst to me, for the benefit of those who want to learn how to eliminate pitching injuries and increase the velocity of the inward rotation of their pitching arm, they took video of themselves performing this drill and posted it.
