HASH(0x9d1ab660) étoiles sur 5 A great resource for pitching information 20 février 2013
Par Rob Smith - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Derek Johnson's "Complete Guide to Pitching" is a great blend of the latest information mixed with a common sense approach to pitching. His delivery is excellent as he takes several complex ideas and presents them in a manner that is easily understood. The use of the "quick pitch" and "pen session" side bars are an excellent tool to help further simplify the ideas being conveyed. The Complete Guide to Pitching is the most comprehensive book available on pitching today. It is a must read for coaches working with pitchers of all ages. As a Division One NCAA head coach, this book will certainly be a great resource for me in developing our pitchers.

This book had that more up to date feeling than others. It was very easy to read with clear instructions. The DVD that came with it made things even easier. If you have a first time pitcher then this book is a must.

HASH(0x9d1ab870) étoiles sur 5 The most complete guide to pitching 5 novembre 2013

This is the most comprehensive book on pitching that I have read, written by a coach with an excellent track record in developing pitchers. I have been coaching kids for over 5 years and I'm constantly looking for the latest proven techniques, drills, approaches, etc versus the old-school mantras such as "pitch downhill" and "follow through". This book details both the "what" as well as the "why" in terms of biomechanics, explained in layman's terms. It covers mechanics, how to throw different pitches, how to utilize this to attack hitters, how to mentally prepare, and physical conditioning. The complete guide!

HASH(0x9d1abaa4) étoiles sur 5 For what it is great information 5 février 2014

I almost never give 5 stars and this book came close. Anyone can use this book as the framework for their pitching program. I have never read Wolforth’s, Nyman’s, or House’s material, nor have seen their DVD’s, but Johnson talks about these three along with Brett Strom in this book, I would blend their current stuff with what is in this book. I have seen Strom lecture at a clinic, I absorbed everything he had to say.

This book is the best for “scope” when it comes to what actually matters in pitching. Part II the Art of Pitching has good “depth”, covering, Developing an Arsenal; how to use the strike zone, and how to throw different pitches; The Role of the Catcher, the pitcher/catcher relationship; Pitching with a Plan, how to pressure the strike zone and attack hitters; Fielding the position, basic pitcher defensive plays; The Mental Game, the me vs you, and me vs me battles.

Part III is probably the most useful part of the book. Derek Johnson basically gives you his college year round throwing program, and if you are not a moron can tailor it to what you are doing. Part III includes Arm Strength and Injury Prevention, Total-Body Conditioning for pitchers, In-Season Throwing Routines, and Year-Round Programming.

Part I, first chapter Foundation, great chapter, focuses on why we pitch, it boils down to joy. The rest of Part I covered mechanics, and basically better than most books, but I expected more. The section was somewhat hard to follow with multiple examples of possible ways and some were not what Johnson teaches but something to throw in the book. I actually bought the book to get a mechanical breakdown, and just didn’t find what he was teaching detailed to my liking. I have actually found some other books with a more complete breakdown of mechanics that are along the some blueprint as Johnson.

In the end I am going to read this book over and over again until I memorize it, and after I am done with that the frame will be in place to add the other details.

One of the more comprehensive pitching books that I've read. Great read . Covers all the bases so to speak. Conditioning and exercises as well.
