Developing Pitchers is crammed with pitching wisdom, including a truckload of tips from this trio of major leaguers.  Plus entertaining stories and anecdotes.  It's a huge megabyte 18-wheeler that shines with 224 pictures illustrating every instruction.  It's split into six volumes.



12 Killer Keys for Velocity.  Paxton's 20 carat masterpiece.



Monster Mechanics--from Knee Raise to Finish.  White Lightning at 110 mph.



Command and the Mystery of Movement.  The Spirit of Billy the Kid Wagner.



Pitches and Grips--four-seam, two-seam, curve, cutter, slider, change, splitter, Dempster’s slider



Protecting the pitcher’s arm--Jobe’s, the scourge of Tommy John surgery, warming up, tubing, the Thrower’s Ten, Moneyball



Extra Innings--bull pens, holding runners, picks, pre-game, what scouts look for, signals, your catcher, building power,

Sidd Finch and his168 mph fastball 


Each volume sells for $8 or all six for $25.  But for all Delta players, at any level, the price is only $15 for everything.    


Teenagers don’t read eBooks very often so Developing Pitchers will arrive by email installments.  It flows like the Mississippi, it’s as entertaining as Rodney Dangerfield, and it covers more ground than a continent.  You’ll absorb more knowledge than most pro pitchers.


Order by PayPal with your payment to  Then send Dave your email address.  And your first chunk of Developing Pitchers will be back at you that same day.


Saddle up.  The hill is your's.
