Missouri State Coach Telling What He Looks For: Character, Ability & In Your Email To Him & More!

Gov ·
Please check out this Dec 2015 video interview with the current Missouri State Head Coach, half way through the video he gets into detail about his recruiting views.   I thought this would be helpful to all of us with kids that desire to play in college.  The recent posts about when to initiate contact and what to include in emails, and what is  important to him, how he recruits, how far away he recruits and why.  He covers a lot. I just watched it and I think it's a...

Are you advocating forearm 'flop/lay back' backwards with your forearm at 90 degrees? Is that what MLB pitchers do? In video 3, you are advocating using weighted balls to increase your range of motion in external rotation. Why does my ROM need to increase? What is the ideal ROM angle?

Re: External Rotation-What it is and how to improve it

jimster ·
Essentially, yes. And depending on what major leaguers you look it, it is what I tend to see. I would like to promote more of a focus of 90 degrees with the angle of your back, but there are guys that very on this part of mechanics. I have found that when my external rotation is at its max potential, the rest of my mechanics are where I want them to be. I will address the rest of your questions in two ways. ROM can refer to both static and dynamic ROM. A good way to tell the differences is...

Just to add two cents, most of the players I work with have too much external rotation and not enough internal rotation. Most players that develop elbow issues have this exact imbalance: Internal Rotation Deficit. Not trying to be negative or argumentative in any way, but just what I have seen over 20 years. Not sure why a player would want to create that type of imbalance of ER to IR. additionally, it is not just the shoulder (glenohumeral joint) that allows these folks to get into these...

Do you have an example of a pitcher who has that issue? I'm curious to see an example of a pitcher with that issue. Throughout the process of changing my arm action and overall mechanics, I was pretty consistently told that I have good internal rotation, when my external rotation was poor. So that is something I have little to no focus on that part of my mechanics. I also did very little research on internal research in general, so I am not very knowledgeable about the issues associated with...

Jimster- The DriveLine article you reference in your write up talks about the IR issues. Specifically the Sleeper Stretch. This is all new to me but has become a hot topic in my household since my son has developed scapular issues. He has very limited IR on his throwing arm compared to his non-throwing arm. This is typical of throwers acording to his Physical Therapist. Also he has been doing Jaeger bands 3 times a week for 2 years now and they are great for the rotator cuff, but don't do...

Re: External Rotation-What it is and how to improve it

I remember the part the article a little. Is internal rotation lack of ROM just referencing a static stretch comparison or you're mentioning? Or is their something when those pitchers throw that show an issue too. I have read about pitchers having the issue your son is having, but I have not heard of any issues in the actual pitching motion. Similar to how I talk external rotation. You can see the level of external rotation you achieve. Is there something that you can see when you look at...

SUAWTG ·
I am not sure of a way to tell in the actual throwing motion. I am just a dad and know very little about this. The PT showed his lack of IR by comparing his IR via the Sleeper Stretch on both sides. His throwing side would not rotate without his shoulder blade moving forward with it. He had done normal stuff (only 14) not heavy lifting. Pushups and light weights etc.. Unfortunately if your scapular muscles are not activating then instead of these exercises making them stronger your body...

Anybody want to take a guess on how many baseball players I've stretched into external rotation of the shoulder? Volleyball hitters? That's right--- Exactly ZERO. They already have excessive ER and by stretching it, all I would do is stress the already stressed joint..

Re: External Rotation-What it is and how to improve it

jimster ·
Not everyone has excessive or complete external rotation nor am I promoting static stretching of it. Or any type of stretching. My article talks improving arm action so external rotatiom(that naturally occurs)can happen. I don't really understand the purpose of your post and it seems kind of combative. If you have seething to add to the conversation, please do. But please add comments that relate to the topic on hand. Thanks!

Wesley, As a 16 year old, you have a good base to work with. I would recommend three things immediately: 1. Lose the Knee Savers. This should allow you to get lower in your stance. Also along that line...get more flexible in your hip flexors. Take a yoga class. You have a pretty good sized frame and you will need to present a low target at times. Flexibility is very important. 2. Find a long toss or arm strengthening/stabilizing program. We use Jamie Evans' Velo-City (...

I'm no expert at all in catching but why are you turning the glove down just before you receive? After you catch the ball your glove is nice and quiet but that little flip could cost you some strikes.

Re: Catching Video, Feedback Appreciated

noumpere ·
I disagree that the "flip" is going to cost any strike (in and of itself). As an umpire, I am focused on the ball, not the glove -- and by the time the ball gets to the glove the glove is back where it should be. I'll leave any comments on the value of the flip or how it might affect other aspects of the catching to the coaches here.

I will try to get video of me hitting sometime in the future. I knew someone was going to say that. A question related to hitting off the tee that I have is, how far off the tee should I be able to hit the ball? I am going into my senior year, I am 6 ft and 200 lbs.

Thanks for the advice. I will include hitting in future videos. I will shorten it some more by taking out the clips you suggested. I will get more video of my throws to second. I got this video taken a couple weeks ago and have gotten better. Got my pop time down below 2.0 and my best at a 1.8.

MTCatcherDad14 ·
Wesley, First, I think it is great that you are doing this. From experience I know that it is difficult to narrow down multiple shots into a concise video. It is important, though that you shorten it, if the intent is to get a college coach to view it. I recommend 2 minutes but no more than 3. My other points: The glove flip is common and typically used as a relaxation technique. Dont worry about that. I would definitely include hitting, maybe the first part if it is the strength of your...

Thanks, to answer your 2, I just re-edited the video and took out that part, but I want to get more football did me throwing to second because I have gotten better and they have gotten faster and are now under 2.0. And for 3 I will do that when I make a new video sometime. Also will try to get hitting. Would hitting off a tee work?

Man you look much better in this video than the one we talked over a few weeks ago. Great job in getting better with hard work. Keep it up. Few things 1. The glove flip isn't a big deal but IMO and others may disagree which is fine but personally I think you may have too much movement. You get into higher velocities it could cause you to be late in receiving but maybe not. I'm a big believer in the down tilt then pop to the spot. 2. Get rid of the throws from the knees. They don't sell you...

I do that to relax my hand and make sure that I stay underneath the ball and that I catch the bottom of the ball and it allows me to stick the pitch instead of the ball bringing my glove out of the strike zone once it hits the mitt.

Like Coach2709's idea of some recoveries after block. Also suggest being on a field that is not all dirt + has a bag at 2nd base for you to throw toward. Good job, keep working!

I will get block and recover video sometime. Finding a field with a grass infield is rather difficult with where I live and most of the time the bases are put away in the sheds which I do not have access to. I will try my best next time to do what I can.

I will work on that! What is the best thing to do for arm strength? How often can I long toss and do band work? I do band work like 3 times a week and use it to warm up before a game.
