Losers, losers, and losers
Paul Reddick He is the Director of the Yogi Berra Baseball School, co-author of the Picture Perfect Pitcher and many other books, and the creator of the 90mphclub.com. We know young guns who have followed Paul Reddick's ideas and instruction and you will seldom meet ballplayers more pleased with their progress. (Click to close.)
By now, most of you know my feelings on the quick-fix, entitlement-oriented, pre-packaged, cookie-cutter, gift-wrapped approach to baseball training. If it was all that simple, that effortless, everyone would succeed, everyone would be a star.
Except it's not.
Finding what works for you - as a pitcher, or hitter, or fielder ...or as the coach of same - well, it's just not that easy. It doesn't get handed to you. And you should NOT expect to succeed just because you try.
Lots of people get that, lots of ways to say it, but a recent "rant" (his word) by Paul Reddick struck us as a to-the-point way to get the idea across of "what it takes". We're not so sure it is a "rant"; we think it simply speaks the unvarnished truth. Here goes...
