The Podcasts

Podcast 1: Answering Member Questions

Mental Toughness in Games & Arm/Hip Bruises

Rich & Mike get together in this podcast to answer some questions submitted to us by Fastpitch Foundations members. The topics discussed in this 30-minute session are: 1) How to respond after giving up a homerun in a game? 2) What can I do to keep my daughter from getting a bruise on her hip and or arm?

Rich will take us down memory lane, as he discusses some of his experiences during his spectacular playing career. Both Mike and Rich will then end the broadcast with a detailed discussion regarding the arm connecting to the pitcher’s throwing side.

Podcast 2: Palm Position at 9 O'Clock

Up, Down, or to the Side?

In our second installment, Rich & Mike spend about 45 minutes talking about an area of the pitch that receives a lot of attention, and tends to have a lot of confusion surrounding it:  Which palm position is most efficient for a pitcher at 9 O'Clock?

A student actively enrolled in Course 102 posed this question - and it led to some great discussions/revelations.  We will discuss uniformity of movements, and how this position can best be leveraged to throw such pitches as the rise, drop, and change.  Additionally, we spend some time talking about the approach as a forward-thinking concept regarding the lessons you will learn here at Fastpitch Foundations!
