“The Physics of Pitching” Review
Written on May 17, 2011 at 6:07 am, by Eric Cressey
I just wanted to quickly mention that a book to which I contributed will be out shortly. The Physics of Pitching will be released on June 6 and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.
Len Solesky, a local pitching instructor who works with quite a few of our athletes, co-wrote the book with James Cain. The Physics of Pitching also features contributions from orthopedic surgeon Dr. Scott Silverberg, physical therapist Rob Ackerly, former MLB pitcher Rusty Meacham, and some schmuck named “Cressey.” My chapter is, of course, focused on strength and conditioning for baseball.
This is an excellent read for parents and kids alike. It won’t appeal quite as much to higher level players and coaches, but if you’re looking to learn the basics of pitching and become a better teacher (or student), it’ll help you to do so. I especially like the fact that the guys went to great lengths to focus on the mental side of pitching. In all, it’s 192 pages with loads of photographs and an accompanying instructional DVD…not too shabby for a resource that only costs $16.49. Check it out HERE.
