Coach Anderson demonstrates a systematic progression of drills that will help your pitchers identify and correct mechanical errors. Under Coach Anderson, the Houston pitching staff finished in the top 10 nationally in five categories, including walks allowed per nine innings (second - 1.82), strikeout-to-walk ratio (third - 3.58), WHIP (fourth 1.06), and ERA (fourth - 2.35).

This 11 step process incorporates proper grip, stance, rocker step, leg lift, balance, stride, arm action, head and shoulder movement, backside movement, release, follow through, and square-up. This progression can help any pitcher improve his accuracy and velocity. Anderson includes three drills that will help coaches determine the best "arm slot" for their pitchers. He also shares a four-drill progression for building muscle memory and a drill to help loosen up your "short-arm" pitchers.

Which pitches are best for you or your athletes? When is it safe to start throwing curve balls? Frank Anderson answers many of the common questions about choosing pitches. In all, Coach Anderson covers six different pitches: fastball, change up, curve ball, slider, splitter, and the knuckle ball, discussing at least two variations of each pitch. Each pitch includes an overview, complete mechanics and grips, how the pitch moves, and the effect it has on the batter. More than 15 total pitch variations are included. Anderson also demonstrates a process for evaluating every pitcher's strengths and weaknesses, and how to best implement these pitches into their repertoire.
