Description

Your will learn the 5 key moves in the pitching delivery that must be present to throw to your maximum velocity.  Regardless of your personal pitching style, these moves must be in your delivery to get the most out of your god given ability.  

The program has 5 feature videos by Coach Mazzoni, backed up by 15 videos of today's current pro pitchers that show these key mechanical moves in action.

The program also comes with a take to the pen workbook to help those put the principles into action.  The workbook has reminders, drills, and a way to track your progress.

From my years of coaching, recruiting, evaluating, and watching video I have determined that only 1 in 10 pitchers actually uses his body and his delivery in a way that produces his maximum velocity.  

With this program you will be able to incorporate the 5 key moves into your delivery and gain velocity in under 21 days.

Wayne Mazzoni has been a college pitching coach since 1992 and has helped thousands of pitchers improve their game from little league to the big leagues. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Pitchers age 12-18 (or their parents/coaches)

The 5 Key Mechanical Movements (Detailed Videos)
7 Lectures 56:49

From the moment we first pick our foot up off the ground in the wind up or stretch we are either gaining momentum or not.  The typical balance point, where you lift you leg and knee and get balanced is not what any legitimate pro does, yet it is being taught by pitching coaches all over the country.  Find out why some athleticism in leg lift is crucial to your velocity.

Preview 14:19

Coming out of our leg kick in the wind up or stretch is now out first real attack move to the plate.  Most pitchers do so with level shoulders and the back foot barely driving into the ground.  Think of a QB throwing a football 70 yards.  The same move that QB would get to prepare for throwing the ball is what you want to do coming out of your leg kick.

Preview 09:08

The stride and the role of the hips is crucial to our delivery.  Too short,  not enough power.  Too long, can't use the hips fully.  Find out your idea stride and how the delivery transitions once your plant foot comes back to the ground.

Preview 09:01

While the release point is unique to each pitcher and his style, what we do following our release is crucial and really effects out velocity.  So many kids are taught to finish in a fielding position which limits their ability to fully delivery the ball.  In this video you will see what really is the ideal finish and healthiest for your arm.

Preview 12:29

The purpose of your delivery is to produce arm speed.  To throw at your max velocity you need your max arm speed.  Find out the way to determine your best arm action and thus arm speed.

This can be printed and taken to your bullpen sessions, field, or training facility.

NCAA Coach at Sacred Heart University, Author/Speaker

I have been a college coach since 1992 and am currently coaching at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. An NCAA Division 1 school in the Northeast Conference. Previously I have coached at Nova Southeastern University, Fairfield University, Post University, and College of the Holy Cross.

I attended Gettysburg College and played football and baseball, graduating in 1991 with a degree in economics that I have not put into action yet! I also have a Master's in Sports Management from St. Thomas University in 1992.

In 1996 I founded a company (Mazz Marketing Inc.) with the intent of educating athletes and parents on the recruiting process. At that time (before the internet and cell phones kids) I wrote book which is still going today, although updated and upgraded many times (it comes with this court, hint, hint).

This book has changed my life. Besides appearing on Fox, ABC, News 12, WFAN (check me out on YouTube) I have also been invited to speak at over 500 high schools on recruiting. Athletic Directors of high schools hire me to speak to their athletes and parents on the recruiting process. I have been doing this for over 15 years.

Along the way I have done countless blogs, articles, interviews, and coaching work all on this topic.
