Pitching Camps



Objectives

  • Increase pitch velocity by creating dynamic and powerful pitching mechanics

  • Develop a strong, healthy throwing arm
  • Refine pitch command
  • Develop off-speed pitches


Areas of Instruction

  • Each player will participate in explosive pitching drills

  • Instruction to communicate the mental approach to pitching
  • Instruction to communicate strategies for getting hitters out



VELOCITY and COMMAND define pitchers


Because of these realities, Bucks County Baseball Academy has developed a comprehensive off-season program to help our players stay at elite levels.
 
Explosive Pitchers Camp previous RESULTS:
  • 20% of pitchers added 9-10 mph
  • 33% of pitchers added 7-10 mph
  • 52% added 5-10 mph
  • 81% added 4-10 mph

Coach Marlow spent time at the Arizona Baseball Ranch in Phoenix, AZ as a guest of camp owner Ken Knutson.  Coach Knutson, the pitching development coordinator with the Cleveland Indians, is doing tremendous work developing elite pitchers.

How you train this winter will impact how you perform on the mound next spring.  If you train your body to move slowly, you will throw slowly. If you train to be explosive and ballistic, you will throw harder.  Your off-season pitching program MUST have specific components to develop VELOCITY and COMMAND.  

IF YOU ARE NOT TRAINING THIS WAY, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME!
With input from several high profile, innovative training programs like Ken’s and working with Theresa Bowers, a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Bucks County Baseball Academy is continuing to improve its Explosive Pitching Program.
