Unknowable vs Unknown

Going to be sharing the difference between unknowable and unknown this week as I hit the road. It seems though the game has forgotten several vital principles of physics in their quest to optimize performance. There are a vast array of unknowable's in baseball and softball performance science. When you admit that something is "unknowable"; beyond the scope of comprehension and understanding you can proceed more intelligently into problem solving and critical thinking as they pertain to implicit and explicit training models.  ‘Ole Blue’ loaded down with Implicit tools for @UNCSoftball and @ClemsonBaseball The gap between science & instruction may be getting smaller but the odometer on my truck will flip past 511,000 miles by the end of the week. This week Clemson Baseball and UNC Softball will get to experience the process of guided discovery.  I want them to learn the power of discovery through V-Flex. Many will never be the same because knowledge and clarity seem to have a profound effect humans.

Altering the Limitations of Pitching Machines

I read an article sometime back that I wanted to share with my followers for the sake of discussion. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/how-to-ma... It centered on how to use pitching machines to get game day results. This article presents a status quo understanding of batting practice that disregards some foundation principles of physics. I simply want to distance my company from the status quo [...]

A Quantum View of Timing

A quantum view of timing consist of examining how the brain processes bits of information to produce a collective "whole" experience. The bits consist of: fragments of emergent time, neurological space from which objects appear (visible & invisible) and how objects arise as a result of reflective light information and pre-emergent action potentials. Neuroscience is at [...]

Workshops on the Horizon

Blueprints for a 2 day V-Flex workshop this fall in Phoenix AZ were drafted this past Friday in Chicago. It will be hosted by Cubs MLB hitting coach, Chili Davis. Chili has been using V-Flex with different Cubs hitters throughout this season and has seen first hand the impact it has on strike recognition. [...]

The Shift: Why Scott Boras May Be Right

A recent tweet by Scott Boras regarding the unfairness of "the shift" has drawn some criticism and caused a little controversy throughout the baseball community. Whether you agree or disagree with his arguments and observations the fact remains that the issue needs to be addressed from a scientific perspective. Everyone has a personal opinion on the subject but biased opinions seldom [...]

New Applications Coming

  I spent a couple of unique days with Allen Gum at UCA last week. Allen was the third baseball coach in the USA to purchase and train implicitly with V-Flex in 2012. His quest to develop a more efficient implicit practice prompted him to invite me to Conway for some exploratory conversations and innovative practice applications. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
