When I first started pitching, the best info I could find was at the bookstore. So as a 10 year old, I read Pitching by Tom Seaver over and over. Basically, it was because I didn’t like to lose and by learning from and modeling guys like Tom Seaver, I figured it would help me win more often.
The VCR was another outstanding pitching coach. When I pitched for Jim O'Brien at Los Angeles Harbor College, he wondered aloud why we as players didn't watch Major League games to see how the best in the game go about their business. So I put the tape in the VCR and recorded my favorite Dodger pitcher, Orel Hershiser. Then I took those recordings and copied his pitching motion, modeling a guy in the middle of a 59 consecutive scoreless inning streak.
Nowadays, I'm able to talk to you directly via the internet. Now I can take all the baseball I have learned and experienced and continue to learn and impart that to you wherever you are and wherever I am. I'm glad you are here and that I'm able to coach you. Thank you for the opportunity.
