There is simply no substitute for hands on experience coaching an art form like ours – pitching. And if that wasn’t enough, the age, comprehension, tolerance range, interest level, and playing sprit from all those that seek responses of a wide attention span tests even the best of intentions of those that respond. Yours truly included.
This is a written media, and as such is riddled with weakness due to the interpretation and narration of all who visit here. BUT, in all my 33 years of coaching at various levels, and my last 19 years as a pitching coach, I’ve found nothing that even comes close to this place, again, taking into consideration the written word and the media that supports it, and you. And no matter who comes here, sincere support should be the first thing that comes across their radar.
Also, take special note of the lack of one person’s agenda.. In other words, what’s deliberately missing is ..”my way or the highway.” But, what’s not missing is the willingness to help you and even guide you to other areas of interest that hosts alternating views and opinions. Flexibility and doing the right thing FOR YOU is evidence enough for even the most skeptical visitor.
You won’t find solicitations in the mail, pay up first, or demands of any kind. And the discreet, reasonable exchanges of ideas and the maintenance of that format speaks volumes for its host Steven Ellis and his Administrators. Also, the regulars that contribute here bring an impressive set of credentials .. that’s obvious based on their response side of this equation.
Rookie or veteran, youngest to the not so young… we all ask “what can we do to help you?” Oh, other sites are just as good and impressive, and I will give credit where credit is due. Here though, your credit is always good .. no need to pay in advance, no hidden fees, and no exact change lane to get into to. Just come on in and enjoy the ride.
Some of the questions that I’ve been asked here have tested my competency and communication skills, and I will freely admit .. it has been a very humbling experience for me. On the flip side though, your questions have made me a better coach. I can’t thank you enough for the lessons.
