Road to WCWS

The women's NCAA D-I softball tournament is here. 46 of the 64 teams in the tournament this year are implicitly training in some form or fashion with V-Flex. Some use our pitching tools exclusively while others train both hitters and pitchers implicitly. SEC teams have blanketed the Super Regional's this year. It is our goal to see an all V-Flex WCWS this year. The following teams use V-Flex for strike recognition training; #1 Oregon, #2 Florida, #3 UCLA, #4 Oklahoma, #5 Washington, #7 Georgia, and #8 Arizona State. Each are hosting Super Regional games. Its possible that V-Flex trained teams could dominate the WCWS. The past 5 NCAA WCWS Champions have trained strike recognition implicitly with V-Flex tools and 90% of SEC softball teams V-flex regularly. They've helped us challenge the status quo and bring about positive change for the game. Thanks everyone and "Good Luck"

The Illusion of Specialization

This past weekend I saw several tweet threads pertaining to Latin American baseball players and why they are so successful. The arguments centered around external environmental factors such as longer playing seasons, warmer weather, more practice time and a dedication to being baseball specific. Some argued that players in the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and Puerto Rico take 3X the [...]

Inside Pitch vs Outside Pitch

Opinions vary but there are only two types of pitches, inside and outside. When I explore “the pitch” I look deep inside the brain for answers regarding its origin and composition. I look for specific components and principles that regulate the flow of information inside the hitter’s brain. That is what I call an inside pitch. An outside pitch [...]

Don' Trust the Spin

So so many coaches and instructors are teaching pick up the spin of the ball if you want to be a great hitter. They think that the spin is what the hitters brain is using to predict where and when the ball will cross the plate. Unfortunately for them and their players time spent [...]

Trisha Ford is one of our biggest advocates, she began using V-Flex when she was at Fresno State University in 2015.  The Bulldogs put up some impressive numbers [...]

Director of Player Development for the Rangers, Paul Kruger, to exchange our new overhand model for our first generation V-Screen. We've come a long way since 2013.  The clarity and precision that our new VX-4 [...]

The Limits of Cognitive or Mental Skills

The human brain works on many levels and all to often people mistake the mind for the brain. This causes great confusion and chaos in the training industry.  The brain can see things that the eyes and cognitive mind can't.  As a matter of fact, our perceptual reality arises from the brains interpretation of billions of bits [...]
