I’m gong to use myself as an example in response to your experience(s).
As far coaches goes in this sport - professionally speaking, we’re locked in time to the way and by the means in which we first started making a living. What worked for me, over a short period of time in the beginning, worked for me for the majority of my career. It’s what I felt comfortable with, things that I saw worked, methods of dealing with the “business” and the people in it.
Now I knew enough NOT to be something that I wasn’t - a coach that knew everything and tried to fit that “knowing” to every man that came across my radar. In fact, to be perfectly honest about it, I could’ve cared less how and why they pitched, as long as produced results. They produced - they had a job, they didn’t - gone. Gone, not because I said so, but gone because they no longer got along with the people paying the bills.
So, trainers and coaches like yourself are in a very special population in this business/sport. You stay on top of things that make sense, should be done, because… because… because. Any thing that comes close to telling someone like myself … " there’s a better way to do this…" usually falls on deaf years. I’ve been very guilty of that mind-set.
Because it means that something new came along that I have to learn all over again, and nothing much will change for me (and others like me) that’ll make a hill-of-beans in my favor, ever. Will I see a better contract next year, or maybe the year after - NO. Will the guys that I see everyday, who could give a hoot, actually take to heart what a man like you say, who’s make pennies compared to their contracts NO.
You say you’ve been a pro pitcher- then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
In the final analysis, if you can show someone in this business how your method(s) can put more $$$$ in their pocket right now. … you’ve got something there. If not … well, you know where I’m gong with that…
