Our column, Pitching 101, was one of the most viewed articles across the Empire State in our first eight months of operation. In 2015, we are bringing a more in-depth column focused solely on everything pitching.

I get asked a lot of questions about baseball; mainly about Pitching. I was a Professional Baseball Pitcher for 11 years in three different MLB Organizations where I was able to fill my knowledge bank on pitching from some very impressive instructors. John Farrell, Scott Radinsky, Charles Nagy, and Steve Belcher just to name a few, and I have also picked the brain of Giants Gold Glove Catcher Kurt Manwaring (1992) a time or two. It's the heart and soul of this beautiful game, let's get to it.

It's only fitting that two-days removed from ACL / Meniscus surgery on my right knee that I talk in-depth about injuries - and how you can become a better pitcher in the face of a traumatic situation. I love the game of baseball and everything it has given me since I was a young boy. All the life-lessons learned through teachers-of-the-game, the teamwork, working alone towards a goal, the opportunities the game has shown me both on-and-off the field - things I'll be forever grateful for. The biggest life lesson of them all would come back in 2005, from a very unwelcome guest - shoulder surgery.
