If I had known then what I know now? Oh, my goodness. There was so much more that I didn’t know. I could have been one hell of a baseball pitcher. It worked all right, but there were gaps in what I could do at certain times in a game to different hitters, in different situations. I needed to expand my game. Most notably, I never threw a curveball. I didn’t know how to throw a curveball. And then I figured out one day how to pronate the release of a curveball. Unfortunately it was seven years after I was out of professional baseball. I had a fabulous curveball seven years out of professional baseball. Just nasty.
There are a couple movies of the unusual pitching delivery he teaches too. There’s a little bit of crazy, but mostly he seems pretty normal.
And, you know, that’s just the reality of life. I’m not upset by it. I’ve found another venue. If it hadn’t been for the internet, you know, I would be a frustrated person. Can you imagine walking around with all that stuff in your head? You know, it’s hundreds of thousands of words and pages and all of that, but it’s cathartic for me. I wake up at 5:30 every morning, and I’ve got three hours where I can sit and just talk to folks about pitching and answer their questions. It’s almost as good as being in a classroom, but not really.
for his generous support.
