What's in a Name?

Webster’s dictionary has two definitions for the word Foundation.

Foundation: a body or ground upon which something is built up or overlaid.


The key to a well-built, sturdy building is laying a proper foundation. Without a stable base, the rest of the building risks being damaged by wind, weather, and other elements.

Another definition provided by Webster’s is:

Foundation: a basis such as a tenet, principle, or axiom upon which something stands or is supported.


A second critical interpretation of the word Foundation is the basic principle upon which a belief, or philosophy is built upon.

When Mike, Rich, and I were trying to come up with a name that captures our core principles for our company we debated on several names. We took our time and considered a lot of factors. After several months, we agreed on Fastpitch Foundations. We felt like it clearly defines what we are all about.

In order to maximize your performance as a pitcher, you must spend the time necessary to physically learn the fundamentals to build a firm foundation. It all starts with establishing a solid base on which all other aspects of pitching can be built on. Velocity, accuracy, movement, and every other aspect of pitching can only reach their full potential once your foundation is built/laid.

Just like it took us months to come up with our name, you shouldn’t rush building a proper foundation either. It’s too important to everything that comes later. We are excited about you joining us on this journey to improve your effectiveness as a pitcher, and look forward to helping you build a firm foundation based on science, anatomy, and best practices.
