New England Baseball Journal - May 2014

As all of A1's high schoolers are amid their 2nd week of "tune ups" before the season, I wanted to offer this very sound piece of advice... DON'T LET THEM SCORE.

The message comes from an article I wrote for New England Baseball Journal back in May, of 2014 found here:

The article references a conversation I had with an A1 client who had put on 10 lbs as a sophomore back then. Now, he's a senior who's put on about 50 lbs since then and A1 is excited to see what he, and the rest of the A1 High School family can do this year.

New England Baseball Journal - November/December 2014

A while back I wrote and article for New England Baseball Journal in which I challenged coaches to step up their game (myself included.)

Likewise, I'm offering an introductory Webinar on Monday, April 4th @7pm, to help coaches and parents with what to look for in developing their young, aspiring pitchers.

It's a 100% interactive experience where I'll be able to answer any questions right then and there. I am very confident that this can help you, your son, or your team in several ways, with included outlines and drill sheets.

I hope to see you there! Follow this link for more information or to register.

The effectiveness of this program is in it's possible reach. I you know of ANYONE who you think might be interested, please share with them. You help is greatly appreciated.
