What aspect of pitching are you wanting a book about? Tuff Cuff is a strength and conditioning book. The Act of Pitching is - I think - more about mechanics. I don’t know about Ball Four.

BTW, my personal opinion about Bagonzi is that he is very “old school” and I wouldn’t recommend him from a mechanics standpoint. But I’m assuming he hasn’t come out with anything new recently - I don’t claim to be up to date on his latest teachings. Just my opinion.

check that out and scroll thru the pages to see whats in the book

everything…
from mechanics to drills to explaining mechanics to how to throw all the different pitches to finger pressure to workout programs

everything about pitching


#7

Well I must admit the table of contents for Bagonzi’s book looks decent. But my knowledge of him comes from some instructional video clips that are on the Internet and, based on those, I don’t care for what he teaches. Again, just my opinion.

As for books I’d recommend…

The Art and Science of Pitching - This is the latest book on mechanics by Tom House

The Louisville Slugger Complete Book of Pitching - Been a while since I read this but I thought it was one of the better books out there at the time.
