Much of what you will learn or be encouraged to purchase online is a money-grab; "by using (insert product here), pitchers gain an average of 5-7mph on their fastball." Great promises, little substance. Did you know that the average velocity of A-level Minor League pitchers is greater than that of the Major League pitchers you see on TV? So, while a 95mph fastball is a significant skill and advantage, for long-term success it must be combined with accuracy, consistency, and health.
A pitching coach/instructor should be expected to give you the best chance to stay healthy and continue to advance as a pitcher. Velocity development is important, no doubt, but the individual nature of pitching makes universal velocity-gain promises impossible to deliver upon. Portland Pitching develops your all-around game and velocity is most definitely a part of that. What works for someone else might not work for you. We will take the time to ensure the path you are on is the correct one for whatever your goals may be.
Far too many programs and coaches advance pitchers too quickly. In professional baseball, what do pitchers who are struggling attribute their problems to? The basic fundamentals. Pitching is repetition and engraining great fundamentals is what makes you a better pitcher both in the short and long-term. You will always need them and, if you don't master the basics now, you'll wish you would have in the future.
Whether it is your first time pitching or you're trying to get a college scholarship, before you are "allowed" to advance to the next step of our programming, we are committed to mastering the fundamentals of good mechanics. What does that mastery do? It makes you more accurate, more powerful, more consistent, more comfortable, and more successful. You simply don't develop into a great pitcher who stays healthy by taking the basics lightly.
Once those great fundamentals are habits, we get to continue on the road to greatness through developing the finer points of our game: changing speeds with sharper, more effective breaking pitches and big-time change-ups, setting hitters up with situational pitch selection, how to make in-game adjustments, and much, much more.
Take a few minutes, look around our website and let us know when you are ready to take the next step toward becoming an elite pitcher.
