Championship Thinking in Sports – Develop Stronger, Healthy Pitchers: The Full Year Approach to Conditioning

Far too many pitchers at all levels experience unnecessary arm fatigue, soreness and recovery time as well as minor to severe injuries. It need not be that way. This show, with guest Patrick Pinkman* details the year long process for how to properly condition pitchers. Specific mind sets & methods will be discussed for all four seasons of the baseball year: winter, spring training, during games and post-season. Each phase has distinctly different aspects of conditioning to do and to avoid. Tune in to learn what they are. Patrick, his father, John and brother, Jeff operate Pinkman Baseball Academy in Reston, VA. Specializing in pitching and hitting, their customer base is world-wide and many of their ‘students’ of the game have successfully played at the collegiate level. He also writes for Collegiate Baseball. Patrick pitched for Virginia Tech from ’97-’02 where he earned Freshman of the Year honors, Atlantic 10 Rookie of the year and selection to the state of Virginia All Star team. He also was chosen as co-pitcher of the year in the Cape Cod League
