THE 18TH ANNUAL ULTIMATE PITCHING COACHES BOOT CAMP AT THE TEXAS BASEBALL RANCH
Each December for the past 18 years, Jill and I have hosted a very unique baseball event. We bring in 8 to 10 of the most progressive-thinking leaders currently in our baseball universe and ask them to challenge the audience’s prevalent belief systems and thought processes. imaginable. This year we had seven MLB organizations represented, just under 30 D-I institutions, and dozens of D-II, D-III, NAIA, JC, and high school coaches and academy instructors. For example, Derek Johnson, the MLB pitching coach of the Milwaukee Brewers, was in attendance, as well as two youth 12-and-under travel ball coaches. In other words, the theater was filled with a tremendous mix of experience and ability. The primary mission of the symposium every year is to assist coaches and instructors in evaluating their current training processes and to enhance, improve, augment, and re-engineer their In attendance every year are 150 coaches from almost every level of baseball
methods and procedures where they see possible constraints or inefficiencies.
The event has proven to be incredibly effective and influential to the baseball pitching world as a whole. It has shown itself many times over the past 18 years to be far more than a standard pitching and baseball clinic. The symposium has been the catalyst of many of the leading-edge concepts and paradigms predominant in today’s most influential teachers and leaders. Over the years, many people have asked me how we select our speakers and presenters. The answer is remarkably simple and straightforward: I simply invite the people I would most like to listen to or hear from. What may surprise those of you not intimately familiar with Jill, me, or the Ranch family is that we often include people who would obviously disagree with us or have a significantly different perspective on training than we do at the Ranch.
If you are someone who finds this sort of investigation and synergy intriguing, we do record every presentation, and each year we have a DVD collection available to purchase as an incredible resource for coaches and instructors alike. This past December’s event — with 18 different presentations — can be ordered at www. PitchingCoachesBootcamp.com.
