Coaching the Beginning Pitcher

Teaching Pitching Safely and Effectively (3rd Edition)

Understand and learn to TEACH the pitching motion. Follow a proven, easy-to-follow plan for training and developing young pitchers. Here is your complete coaching reference to pitching mechanics, arm care, common flaws, pick-offs, and mental strategy. With complete lesson plan outlines, this book will be the most valuable piece of coaching equipment you own! BENEFITS AND HIGHLIGHTS • Learn to TEACH pitching in addition to understanding it. • Keep athletes safe, healthy, and having fun on the mound • Help athletes tackle tough mental challenges related to the pitching position • Identify and fix common flaws and errors • Set up effective training programs and throwing schedules. Since the previous edition of Coaching the Beginning Pitcher, I’ve spent an additional eight years as a professional instructor (total pitching lessons provided eclipsed 15,000), three years as a collegiate pitching coach, driven deeper into advanced mechanics associated with velocity and power production, and earned a Master’s Degree in Physical Education. With expanded write-ups on the coaching plan (Chapter 3), drills (Chapter 5), and recognizing and correcting challenges (Chapter 6), along with a completely updated and enhanced section on training the pitcher’s mind (Chapter 11), Coaching the Beginning Pitcher, Third Edition, is complete! Although it may seem that the mechanics of pitching have not changed for the last hundred years, the nuances of instructing young pitchers are constantly evolving. This book contains the most effective methods known for working with young athletes, complete with tips and drills, throwing loads and quantities, common mistakes and remedies, and valuable sample lesson plans. This book is written with the right-handed pitcher in mind. However, all examples and pictures can be easily reversed and applied to the left-handed athlete. Coaching pitchers requires much more than knowledge of the physical motion of pitching. Effective pitching instruction also incorporates a structured, efficient plan and communication methods effective with—and often unique to—youth baseball players. This book provides that plan, outlining the steps to follow when working with a pitcher, and helps the coach place a pitcher in the best possible position to experience pitching success with a healthy arm. Finally, this book helps baseball coaches and parents maximize their own enjoyment and fulfillment while working to improve the technique, performance, and abilities of the youth pitcher! TESTIMONIALS “Dan Keller’s blend of baseball knowledge, training techniques, communication skill and love of teaching kids is captured in this well-designed book. This book teaches the art of pitching from fundamentals to complexities in a manner that coaches, novice to expert, can grasp and use effectively.” ~ Abe Key, President & CEO, PONY Baseball & Softball Inc. “I’m very impressed with Dan’s ability to break down and organize pitching instruction. Arm care and pitcher development are hot-button topics taken very seriously at Babe Ruth League. Our organization believes that Coaching the Beginning Pitcher provides a solid training plan to follow.” ~ Steven Tellefsen, President & CEO, Babe Ruth League, Inc. “Keller has a great baseball mind, a terrific understanding of the pitching motion, and an un- matched ability to communicate clearly. If you are trying to learn how to coach pitching, this book can provide the foundation you need.” ~ James Keller, Special Assistant to the GM, Toronto Blue Jays “This book embodies positive youth coaching and the development of today’s athletes. Dan’s understanding of the mechanics of pitching is impressive, and he communicates in a fashion that is understandable for all. Coaching takes a plan, and Dan helps to provide that plan.” ~ Gary Adams, Retired UCLA Baseball & Hall of Fame Head Coach

Dr. Tommy John's unique program: a diet, lifestyle, and movement plan (Rethink. Rebuild. Replenish. Recover) for injury- and performance-proofing young athletes in every sport Beginning as early as age 6 and continuing through the teenage years and on into their twenties, both male and female athletes are more at risk of serious injuries at younger ages than ever before. Dr. Tommy John, son of lefty pitcher Tommy John and also a sports performance and healing specialist, offers an invaluable diet, lifestyle, and movement plan (Rethink. Rebuild. Replenish. Recover) for injury- and performance-proofing young athletes in every sport. Dr. John explores the sudden rise of Tommy John surgeries being performed on young athletes today, as well as the many injuries--and the surgeries required to fix them--increasing at an alarming rate in baseball and all youth sports. Dr. John's book outlines the three top causes behind this "injury epidemic": The American lifestyle, the business of youth sports (from coaches to corporations), and the decisions we believe as parents are truly benefiting our children. Minimize Injury, Maximize Performance focuses on prevention, and also offers tips on how to tailor the advice for athletes coming back from an injury, with over 120 black and white photographs.

Intensiver sehen, hören, fühlen – wenn Ihre Empfindungen Sie zu überwältigen drohen Wie nehmen Sie Ihre Welt wahr? Beeinträchtigen Lärm, Gerüche oder Stress Ihr Wohlbefinden? Haben Sie eine reiche Vorstellungskraft und lebendige Träume? Spüren Sie Feinheiten in Ihrer Umgebung auf und können Sie sich auf Ihre Intuition verlassen? Wenn Sie diese Fragen mit "ja" beantworten, dann sind Sie wahrscheinlich hochsensibel und äußerst feinfühlig in der Wahrnehmung äußerer Eindrücke. Hochsensible Menschen stoßen im Alltag jedoch auf viele Schwierigkeiten und werden oft fälschlicherweise als schüchtern stigmatisiert. Elaine N. Aron ist selbst hochsensibel. Einfühlsam und fundiert, basierend auf wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen und Hunderten von Gesprächen, gibt sie einen umfassenden Einblick in das Phänomen Hochsensibilität. Sie gibt Ratschläge im Umgang mit Hürden im Alltag und erläutert, wie hochsensible Menschen zu einem ganz neuen Selbstbewusstsein finden.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Golf ist eine flüchtige Angelegenheit. Das gilt für Einsteiger wie Profis. So gut der letzte Schlag gewesen sein mag - nie gibt es Gewissheit über den nächsten. Diese Situation ist typisch für das Golfspiel. Und man kann ihr auf zweierlei Weise begegnen. Wir können nach vermeintlichen äußeren Sicherheiten suchen, in dem wir uns die Technik des "richtigen Schwungs" erarbeiten. Die Fülle der damit verbundenen TO DO's können aber schnell zu Überforderung und Verkrampfung führen. Anders bei dem in diesem Buch beschriebenen Weg. Dort geht es um die Entwicklung einer inneren Sicherheit, die von äußeren Situationen unabhängiger macht. Der Schlüssel dazu liegt in einer verstärkten Aufmerksamkeit für den eigenen Schwung und im Erkennen des eigenen "inneren Spiels". Mit lebendigen Beispielen und starken Argumenten zeigt Gallwey den Weg zum Selbstcoaching auf, einer Methode, die nicht nur das Leben auf dem Golfplatz leichter macht. Dieses Golfbuch ist im englischsprachigen Raum längst ein Klassiker.
