  3. The Top 4 Ways Pitchers Become Disconnected - By Randy Sullivan, MPT, CSCS

    “Overhand throwing is an unnatural movement.” That’s what “they” say. Who says that? You know, the ubiquitous yet ever-elusive “they” who reign supreme as the self-appointed authority on just about everything. Well… not surprisingly, “they” are wrong again. According to a June 2013 report published in the journal Nature, throwing has been “natural” since our Homo Erectus ancestors began chucking...
  4. 5 Major Changes and Upgrades at the Texas Baseball Ranch® by Ron Wolforth

    Based upon the works of Dr. Frans Bosch and Dr. K.
