Dr. John Bagonzi is one of the
foremost authorities on the subject of pitching in the world. He
has made pitching his lifeís work and constantly searches for
techniques that will allow pitchers to reach and exceed their
potential. With The Inner Sanctum - Mastering The Act
of Pitching, Dr. Bagonzi has penned an exceptional book that
will help every pitcher and pitching coach in the game.
The book is extraordinary in its depth on the subjects of the
fastball, mechanics, breaking pitches, the mental aspects of the
game, developing the pitcher through resistance training,
nutrition and drills, along with physics and anatomy of pitching
and how to create effective pitches through the science and art
of pitching. Every chapter is dissected into minute detail
that will allow readers to grasp concepts to their fullest. A
prime example is the first chapter on fastballs which discusses,
among other things:
And thatís just chapter one!
In-depth discussions take place in every chapter about the main
topics. In addition, there are 400-plus photos in the book
which demonstrate pitching sequences and grips designed to
enhance activity on pitches. A special area of the book
includes a glossary of 112 pitch grip photos.
The Inner Sanctum - Mastering The Act of Pitching
is unquestionably one of the best pitching books ever written on
the subject of pitching. It will be a work that is
referred to by coaches and players from this point forward.
