Pitchers Power Drive – creates momentum to increase velocity

Pitchers Power Drive creates momentum to increase velocity

The Pitchers Power Drive training aid teaches backside initiation, pelvic loading, hip lead, momentum, balance, correct drive leg angle, leg drive to extension and lower body power to maximize ground force reaction.  The Pitchers Power Drive Science of Pitching video at 1,000 frames per second shows the essential points of a delivery starting from departure.  Proper departure is essential and helps set up success for the rest of pitch delivery.  It is less than a second to landing from departure of knee lift…..so there is no time for athletic adjustments.  Pelvic load and hip lead helps pitchers stay over their back foot longer, setting weight and creating the right drive angle on back leg.  This drive leg angle maximizes lower body power and leg drive from a solid foot position to rubber and ground.  The Pitchers Power Drive allows foot to be in solid drive contact position creating strong ground force reaction just like in a game.

The US Patent pendulum design allows a natural momentum delivery from this solid foot plant.  This enables a pitcher to create maximum ground force reaction from leg and foot drive increasing momentum and forces down mound, to longer stride, stronger posting on front leg and faster power torso turn creating good extension at release point.  Professional and collegiate coaches are training their pitchers with the Pitchers Power Drive because it teaches the right pelvic load, hip lead, weight distribution, lower body and leg drive to extension just like in game action, staying in contact with the rubber longer.  This enables proper leg drive creating more ground force reaction.  The auditory and kinetic feedback allows the pitcher to feel and hear when he is doing it right while throwing a baseball.  If you squat, drop, fall, leak or drift the pitcher will not hear the Power Drive click at knee lift departure.

There are no springs or sliding parts that could cause a pause, hesitation, launch or give resistance to a natural delivery.  Learn by throwing live drills to a catcher full distance, hearing the auditory click, feeling kinetic timing of 1/4″ steel striking 1/4″steel.  Watching DVD’s being sold for hundreds of dollars will not teach you what the Pitchers Power Drive will.  Or will hip wall drills and other drills that do not involve throwing a baseball while hearing and feeling how to perform the proper athletic movements while synchronizing kinetic timing. .  There is not a better way to learn than by performing the proper athletic movements with auditory and kinetic feedback while throwing the baseball to a catcher.

Increase Pitching Velocity from proper departure to improve the essential important points of a delivery.  Pitchers have increased velocity from 4-10 mph with the aid of the “Pitchers Power Drive”.  Owners have access to web based training site with 5 day workout program including 23 drills.  This workout program teaches to maximize pelvic load, hip lead, proper leg drive angle, leg drive to extension and increases torso energy thus creating more ground force reaction to increase velocity.

The original US Patent Pitchers Power Drive was designed by trainers that understand pitching at their 10,000 square foot Winning Pitchers Academy and Research Center in Boston. Using now for 13 years in over 35,000 lessons. That is why there are already 24 Professional, 600+ Collegiate, 3,500+ High School, Travel teams and Academy’s using the Pitchers Power Drive. Most of these team have multiple units 2-12 Pitchers Power Drives.  Thousands of professional, collegiate and travel team players are training on Power Drive Performance training aids with great skill improvement, velocity increase and success on the mound.

Pitchers Power Drive is available in metal or turf models.  Turf allows use of cleats which the professional and collegiate teams requested and use.

Pitchers Power Drive Reviews from professional players and coaches.  Click Image for review.

  • “THE PITCHERS POWER DRIVE IS A GREAT TOOL TO HELP BASEBALL PITCHERS WITH THEIR WEIGHT TRANSFER. ITS NOT ONLY PROVIDES THE PITCHER WITH A BALANCED TRANSFER BUT IT GIVES AUDITORY FEEDBACK SO THE PITCHER CAN REPEAT HIS DELIVERY. THIS IS A TREMENDOUS PRODUCT FOR PITCHERS!” – STEVE FOSTER

     STEVE FOSTER – COLORADO ROCKIES PITCHING COACH AND FORMER PROFESSIONAL PITCHER

  • “THE PITCHERS POWER DRIVE IS A TREMENDOUS TRAINING DEVICE THAT TEACHES PITCHERS THE CORRECT WAY TO TRANSFER THEIR WEIGHT DOWN THE MOUND USING THEIR LEGS.”

    RICK KNAPP – LOS DODGERS MINOR LEAGUE PITCHING COORDINATOR

  • “THE PITCHER’S POWER DRIVE IS A VERY NICE TOOL. WE HAVE BEEN USING THE HOME-MADE WOODEN “K-BOARDS” FOR QUITE SOME TIME, BUT THEY PALE IN COMPARISON TO THIS PRODUCT. THEY ARE STURDY YET PORTABLE AND THE AUDITORY CLICKING FEATURE IS GREAT FOR GIVING PROMPT FEEDBACK, MAKING IT EASY FOR THE PITCHER AND COACH TO USE. USING THE LOWER HALF OF THE BODY IS A HARD CONCEPT FOR MOST PITCHERS TO UNDERSTAND LET ALONE IMPLEMENT, SO THIS MAY SERVE AS ANOTHER PIECE TO SOLVING THAT PUZZLE. DEFINITELY A GOOD TOOL FOR IMPROVING EFFICIENCY AND VELOCITY.”

    DEREK JOHNSON – CHICAGO CUBS MINOR LEAGUE PITCHING COORDINATOR

     

  • “JAY LEHR FROM ROUNDTRIPPER ACADEMY INTRODUCED THE PITCHERS POWER DRIVE TO ME DURING THE 2010 ALL STAR BREAK. THE FEEDBACK I GOT WAS IMMEDIATE! THIS IS NOT A GADGET, IT’S YOUR OWN PERSONAL PITCHING COACH AND IT WORKS!”

PITCHERS POWER STRIDE

The Pitchers Power Stride teaches pelvic load, proper hip rotation at landing, staying closed, pitchers stride direction, pitchers stride length and power finish.

While doing lessons over the last 13 years at our Winning Pitchers Baseball Academy and Research Center, we have worked to teach pitchers proper pelvic load, stride direction and strong back hip rotation at landing.  Approximately 90% of pitchers do not pelvic load, do not power stride or finish with strong hip rotation.  Many are taking straight leg drops thus landing open and dragging or pulling there back hip through with weak front side.  We see this at all age levels, Little League to Professional Baseball.  There are college and professional teams using the Pitchers Power Stride to correct pitching deliveries.

Most pitchers depart knee lift with their front toe and leg resulting in getting out front and flying open with front side. The Pitchers Power Stride teaches pelvic loading with power stride sweep while teaching that their front foot rides with hip and does not lead. This keeps pitchers closed longer producing a strong hip rotation through landing utilizing maximum lower body forces to increase pitch velocity.  A proper pitching stride is initiated with the transfer of energy that starts with good pelvic load, proper power stride direction and strong back side hip rotation to home plate.  This creates power finish and faster torso rotation taking stress off the arm and shoulder.  The Pitchers Power Stride creates proper hip rotation through landing to maximize weight transfer utilizing ground force reaction and power.

Learn proper muscle memory for correct pitching mechanics with instant multisensory and visual feedback from using the Pitchers Power Stride.  Learn through dry drills, pitching drills to target and pitching live full distance to a down catcher.  Pitchers cannot cheat a proper pitching delivery with Power Drive Performance training aids.

As professional instructors, Power Drive Performance products include free training with web based training sites for each product.  This training is as important and valuable as the products.  The Pitchers Power Stride includes a separate Owners Only web based training site maintained by Pitchers Power Drive and Winning Pitchers Academy and Research Center. Site contains 12 PPS drills and other pitching instruction at no cost. This site is updated often and provides continuous learning from Winning Pitchers Academy professional instructors, College and Professional Coaches.

Pitchers Power Drive and Winning Pitchers Baseball Academy is a team of professional trainers and coaches that spend thousands of hours each year working hand and hand with pitchers and hitters to achieve higher performance. From our beginning 13 years ago we have always used computer video analysis for lessons. We would never have thought of doing a lesson without the use of Advance Computer Analysis – ACA.  It is important for players to visually learn their strengths and opportunity areas while comparing themselves to successful professional players on a computer at the same points of their delivery or swing.  Pitchers improve with first lesson and after 4-6 lessons we compare via video to first lesson video and see improvements in all skill areas.  The athletes learning process is much faster using Power Drive Performance training aids and advance computer video analysis.
Just as important as the video analysis is the instructor’s depth of pitching / hitting knowledge and his ability to translate this knowledge to the pitcher or hitter for improving performance. We remain dedicated to our players for years of instruction to help them achieve their highest potential. We work with a re-shaping process that has been highly successful in improving pitchers skills, delivery and velocity or hitters linear to rotation mechanics for increased bat speed and power. This process includes sets of re-shaping drills that are specific to each individual pitcher or hitter that address his opportunity areas for improvement. The process is much different than traditional or old ways of teaching pitching and hitting. Our process has proven successful with thousands of players we have worked with. We improve every player we work with 10 fold in the lanes and on diamonds with our ACA and re-shaping process.
With more players each month traveling to Boston from across the US for Advance Computer Analysis with us ….we wanted to offer our successful re-shaping training process to all players through Advance Computer Analysis – Live Remote.
When pitchers travel here monthly from distances we always charge our normal lesson rate just like they lived here in Boston. We will now offer our regular lesson rate with the same successful instruction process through ACA Live Remote……just like you live here in Boston and drove up to the Winning Pitchers Academy and Pitchers Power Drive front door.
Our Advance Computer Analysis – Live Remote and lessons use the same Right View Pro software the Professional and Collegiate teams use.  We supply a complete analysis with specific “Re- Shaping” drills on video filmed from our Winning Pitchers Academy.  Like a live lesson here, we review the Advance Computer Analysis live via computer hook up and phone to go over in detail the analysis, lesson, drills and our specific targeted recommendations to improve performance and velocity…..just like you were here in Boston for a two hour live analysis and lesson.

SCIENCE OF PITCHING

THE SCIENCE OF PITCHING

  • Correct departure sets up successful delivery and direction through landing
  • Pelvic loading and Hip Lead creating momentum and power through delivery
  • Hip lead creates maximum hip to shoulder separation angle 16-28% creating power & momentum
  • Leg drive to extension creates, power directional momentum and force toward home plate .
  • Proper weight transfer and drive creates optimal hip to shoulder separation and maximum hip speed rotation for velocity
  • Power transfer creates proper front leg posting, knee reversing to post
  • Hip and heal lead to keep weight on back side
  • Pitchers power stride sweep to create power, stability & direction
  • Foot creates ground reaction force as the foot drives in to the rubber for back leg drive to extension
  • Scapular load unloading for power & velocity
  • Timing upper & lower creates maximum arm whip and external arm rotation for velocity
  • Great front side direction and extension to ball release
  • Arm Pronation results in high spin rotation of ball
