  1. Is Improper Weight Lifting A Problem? - by Randy Sullivan

    Company Logo Hi, Last week, a young man flew into Tampa to train with us for a few days. I’ll call him Cade. A barrel chested Lefty who, at 6’0” and 210 lbs, Cade clearly excelled in the weight room, He was having pain in the lateral upper arm and forearm. He said he had experienced the same symptoms during every high school outing this year.  Each day, when he started his throwing routine here, he could only manage about 10 throws before succumbing to throbbing/radiating pain and weakness in his left arm.

  2. The Process of Progress By: Coach Flint Wallace

    It seems like every time I drive somewhere I see some type of infrastructure enhancement going on, AKA...Road Construction. There always seems to be a road that is getting fixed, expanded, or a whole new road or highway being built. Most, if not all of these things, would be considered by most as progress. But, with progress there is always some inconveniences. Like, when road construction is taking place, often the traffic is actually worse than it was before the construction started. Usually, before the construction started, traffic moved ok, but not great. Then when the construction starts, the traffic moves much slower than before the actual project began. There are back ups and jams and the project always seems to take longer than planned. Usually because of an obstacle, that was not originally foreseen. Like a week straight of rain, or a busted water line, or a piece of equipment breaks down. But, once the project is completed, the road is better than before: the traffic flows much better, much faster, and more smoothly. Continue reading →
  3. Pump the Pump - from Flint Wallace

    The other day I across some of my old practice plans from when I was coaching at Weatherford College. At the bottom of every practice schedule I would put a quote or saying. One of those old plans had a saying that is one of my favorites, Pump the Pump. This saying came from a story that I got from Fred Corral, the pitching coach at the University of Georgia. I changed part of it to adapt to our team, and I would give my pitchers a copy of the story at the beginning of the year. Whenever I felt we were close to a break through or going through a tough stretch, I would post the saying at the bottom of the Practice schedule as a reminder of how close we could be to something great. Here is the story as I would give it to my Players. Continue reading →
  4. Always Keep the BIG Picture in Mind - From Flint Wallace

    This past week I had the privilege to watch a professional photographer do a photo shoot at the Texas Baseball Ranch for an upcoming article in Sports Illustrated about Ron and the Ranch. I believe it is to come out in the April 15th issue. So be sure to check it out. It was truly interesting how the photographer had the main picture, or Big picture, that he wanted in his mind, but how much detail he went into to capture the shot he wanted. He had a plan.
