Thanks Coach I will do that and post it.
Thanks Coach, I will do that and post some video to make sure we are doing it right.
Hi Coach, thank you, this is very informative feedback. Zack and I will view the video together later and go to work on the suggestions tonight. On what we did, we did the water bottle drill. The water bottle drill is really effective. For anyone whose going to do it, I recommend doing what we did which was doing it daily until you got it down. In fact, as maintenance, Zack will continue doing it. Coach, on the pitching rubber placed near the landing foot, do you mean on the inside of the foot since he points towards 1st? FYI, he’s been working on this too and its blocking off less than before, I can see how this will finish that issue off.
Thanks Coach. On another note, Zack has been working hard on his list of issues.
Thanks Coach, I have not.
Hi Coach, Please review the attached video of my son. He has been working very hard with and without the ball, including drills. I would appreciate it if you could provide some updated feedback on his progress before we see you in December. Thank you. Jim http://vimeo.com/107165631
Hi Coach, I did see the video of the 21 year old, and we are videoing. I am going to post another video over the weekend to make sure we are headed in the right direction. thank you
Coach, I did see the videos and didn’t recognize it on my son. Thank you for your analysis. I will be looking at the videos and implementing them with him. Jim.
Thank you coach. I will work on that with him and you can assess again live in December. Jim
Hi Randy, Here is the video we took yesterday. Appreciate any insight you could give us to help our son. Thank you. Jim http://vimeo.com/106004275
Hi Randy, thank you, yes that was his diagnosis, and he did return very slowly and since he has been holding back he’s still coming back slowly. I do have video from last night, you will see him pulling back I will ask my wife to post it now and if not I will post it tonight. 60’s (spiked at upper 60’s) this past season.
Hi Randy, I’m Jim, you’ve commented on my posts in the past, especially on curveballs, and I have read your comments on other posts, and I value your thoughts. I just posted “inflammation of Elbow” I’d really appreciate your thoughts on this one. FYI, I saw the video’s you posted of your son and I am going to show them to my sons (13 and 9) and later, your son looks really good.
<p>My experience is there are some good “people” trying to do the best they can, but have no clue what they are doing…dangerous. There are those that don’t care about the kids…dangerous. And I’m sure some teams with a guy like Coach Mills whose son is on the team and you get quality advice from him…rare.</p> <p>I live in a small town, and told the coaches, don’t touch my kids pitching mechanics…at all. I understand the difficulty with that. But I am not there to make friends with a guy that either has no clue what he is doing, or doesn’t care about my kid, or both.</p> <p>Last year I pulled my older son from a travel team for all the usual reasons: manager was over-pitching the kids, didn’t video tape and this may surprise you…all the daily practices interfered with our fall bullpens. This year, he is working very hard with proper conditioning and bullpens, and suggestions both Coach’s Mills made this summer to his mechanics and his velocity has just jumped. I am in the YOU know what’s best for your kids camp.</p> <p>I found a team that will allow him to join them a “few” times this fall to get some feedback on his changeup by facing batters. Following Mills’ suggestions of pitchers are made in the fall. I’ve never seen my kid pitch like he did Saturday. He threw fastballs by good hitters at will and his changeup was really effective. They couldn’t touch him. I have put too much time into my sons (and learned too much) to not be the main coach for my boys.</p> <p>To all reading this string…go back and read Randy’s comment above. To Randy..I still appreciate your comments to my curveball post earlier this year, if you read this far you know we worked on his changeup.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Thanks Coach. We will continue our focus on the 4 and 2 seem fastballs, and his change up. By the way, he’s been working very hard on his change up, and it looks very good.</p>
