Are You Putting Yourself in Jeopardy?

You’re putting yourself in jeopardy are when you obsess over your results.

A Performance Driven Delivery
A "performance driven performance" model means you use prematurely use your throwing arm for balance, delay your throwing arm into release and produce unacceptable results.

You can't control your results...

  • The hitter directly influences your results.  Good hitters hurt your results.  Bad hitters pad your results.
    - You can't control your opponent, so why measure your results against your opponent?
  • Your naturally unproductive performances force you to use your last pitch location to influence your next pitch arm angle.
    - You can't overpower your mind's "built-in response mechanism", so why not do something to work with it?
  • Your constant change in arm angle, no matter how subtle, creates the small ligament tears and fraying that, over many repetitions, makes you an extreme Tommy John risk.
    - You fail to address your arm slot changes and, because your throwing arm distress takes you off the mound, you won't have to worry about your results?
  • Your inability to dominate at your current level hitters translates to next level hitters totally controlling you, not you dominating them.
    - When you properly address the cues your 
    mind's "built-in response mechanism", you move past "potential" and show talent evaluators "ability"?
The opposite of a performance driven delivery is a motion driven delivery.
  • You use your footwork to position your hips to keep your throwing arm free to instantly respond to your stride
  • Your throwing hand moves through a naturally healthy, totally spontaneous and extremely acceptable performance.
  • You motion produces your results without you requiring your results to drive your results.
Want a naturally productive, Tommy John resistant motion?  … Ask me to show you how properly managed footwork gets you to pitch as good as or better than you ever expected.
