Baseball is a game of failure coached by negative people in a misinformation environment. The baseball landscape is fractured because there is a systematic disconnect between all of the game’s “experts”
Who are our experts……
- On the field , academy, a.a.u., personal skill coaches
- Physical therapists, athletic trainers, conditioning coaches
- Exercise physiologists, kinesiologists
- Sports medicine doctors
Our On-the-Field, Academy, AAU and/or Personal Skill Coaches Create Issues By:
- Instructing with good intentions and bad information (i. opinion-based conventional wisdoms, not science- based research)
i.e., Stay tall, stay back, don’t rush, push of the rubber
Right hander’s right side of rubber, left hander’s left side of rubber to create angle
Shorten stride, get on top to create depth
Don’t stride across your body, don’t stride open, stride straight Don’t land on your heel
Pull glove to chest
- Making themselves look good by pointing out how bad their peer group is
- Not speaking or understanding the exercise science/sports medicine vocabulary.
