This blog is dedicated to helping all pitchers improve their pitching performance. How will I accomplish that? I will use this space to share my experience as a coach and a player over the last 15 years. My experiences have shaped and molded my understanding of what it takes to be a successful pitcher. Future posts will address specifics of how a pitcher can be successful regardless of size, velocity, stature, etc.
Here are a few quotes that encompass my belief about not only how to be a successful baseball player but also how to be successful in life after baseball"
"Most battles are won before they are ever fought."-General George Patton
"The harder I work, the luckier I get"-Samuel Goldwyn
"There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do - and I believe that."-Derek Jeter

What others have to say:
"My son is in Grady's VIP program and this was his first time focusing on training to be a pitcher. The program is exactly what you want, there is a movement screening, data driven approach to pitch design, mechanics, velocity , and command, along with strength training. My son has improved his velocity, command, movement and off-speed pitches but most importantly he has improved how he thinks as a pitcher and how to actually pitch, not just throw.
My biggest takeaway from the program is that Mike and his coaches care about helping my son reach his goals and support him. My advice to any parent is to sign your son up for the VIP program and make sure he follows it, you will not be sorry!" - Mike Hampu
"My first and lasting impression of Grady's Pitching School is the enthusiasm Mike and his instructors bring to EVERY lesson. They genuinely interested in your players growth and improvement. Mike isn't trying to make every pitcher throw the same way. He analyzes and experiments with each pitcher, e.g. different release points, different grips, etc. to try and maximize their individual skills. Mike's understanding of pitching and pitch design coupled with the technology is second to none. Mike truly uses the technology to enhance the players' training experience. A lot of young players don't understand or possess the self-awareness to make adjustments. The technology and Mike's analysis with your player allows them to not only see what they are doing, but to see how the adjustments immediately impact the results." -Ian Schechterman
