Are you addicted to mis-informaton?

Unless you have the stomach to embrace facts that directly contradict what you hear, think and believe, you're wasting your time reading any further.

Check this out!!!
Drew Westen, an Emory University psychologist, and his colleagues proved that when you reject facts contrary to your beliefs, your brain lights up like an addict when they get a fix.
Therefore ...
-  Regardless of the facts, you're programmed to believe what you believe.
-  The positive physical response you receive when you reject contradictory facts builds upon your drive to reject any conflicting data???
You're hardwired to discard information that contradicts your beliefs.

To improve, you need to overcome the urge to reject facts contrary to your beliefs and begin focusing on how your body actually works.

When you make a throwing action without aiming at a target, your energy naturally flows from your lower body, up your core and into/out of your throwing hand.

As soon as someone places a target a few feet away, everything changes.

When you miss your target by an unacceptable distance, common sense has you thinking you can simply change your next outcome by changing your arm slot... but you CAN'T really control your throwing arm path?

How do you control your throwing arm path?

As soon as you realize you must abandon your “common sense approach” and begin managing the messages your mind’s “built-in response mechanism” sends to your brain will you gain complete control over...

  1. Your throwing arm path,
  2. Your next pitch release window and
  3. Your ability to challenge every opponent to drive your next pitch.

Until you embrace the fact that your your “common sense approach” doesn't work, you'll continue to struggle with your command and, at the same time, you make yourself a Tommy John risk.
