About this product
- DescriptionThis book presents a scientific but easy-to-understand explanation of pitching power, describing how pitchers can achieve phemenal fastball velocity and record-breaking strikeout numbers. It fills the gap between hyper-technical and folk science, answering some long-standing questions, such as: How was a 17-year-old rookie named Bob Feller able to strike out Major League batters in record numbers? How do the tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the arm and shoulder work to amplify power for greater pitch velocity? How was mir league pitcher Steve Dalkowski able to throw the most phemenal fastball ever seen (or heard)? Why do young pitchers with exceptional velocity often issue walks at exceptional rates? What is the physical reason good pitchers occasionally pitch badly? Why is exceptional hand speed important? Why should Nolan Ryan still be considered the fastest pitcher of all time? What is it about overhand throwing that causes elbow and shoulder injuries? How can a pitcher achieve greater endurance and durability? What is the most reliable way to increase fastball velocity? This book addresses these and other questions for pitchers, coaches, managers, trainers, and fans.
