Testimonial from College Training at TZAcademy has impacted my pitching career completely. Prior to connecting with Jim, I was a freshman at UC Irvine sitting only 80-83 mph. After tons of work, this soon translated to hitting over 90+ mph. Jim and Warren Bauer’s progressive training methods have truly helped me find my true potential. Not only have I seen an increase in my velocity, but there has been a significant positive impact on my arm health. Arm care is a top priority here at TZAcademy, while there is also an emphasis on strength and mobility. Jim and Warren’s knowledge and experience with biomechanics of the pitching delivery has helped me make adjustments to create efficient movement patterns. TZAcademy maintains an enthusiastic environment that propels each player to push beyond their limits. Jim has a passionate desire to see every one of his players reach their peak potential. My knowledge in the art of pitching has skyrocketed ever since I started training here. I know that if I ever need advice, I can 100% trust that I will get the best feedback. I would consider Jim Wagner & Warren Bauer the best in the business.
Classes and Private Lessons My daughter Anessa has been going to Jim Wagner and TZAcademy for over 4 years now. In fact, we still have his postcard that he sent after our first visit when she had just turned 7 years old. This seems like yesterday, yet Anessa has developed into a solid pitcher over the years. This is in part due to Jim and his pitching philosophy.
Jim incorporates arm care into each session which as a parent it is very important for me. Anessa plays baseball year round on a club team so it is important that she learns about arm care/ develops insight into different pitching styles and is able to stretch and take good care of herself. Jim has done this and beyond while (most of all) making it fun! Anessa loves coming to TZAcademy. She is able to set goals/reach them and have a good time while working hard. Jim has become a support to Anessa in the world of baseball and has often come to her games and inquired about how she has pitched during tournaments. He cares for his clients and above all has a true passion for his work. This shows and is very much appreciated. I highly recommend TZAcademy to anyone interested and have really enjoyed watching TZAcademy ans Anessa grow over the years!
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “I enjoyed the entire camp but specifically I really enjoyed the video analysis and the hip mobility circuit. I highly recommend coming to the boot camp because the instructors really do know what they are talking about and I got way more then I expected to get out of it”
Classes and Private Lessons “Even though Cade’s leg was hurting and Coach Randy was down and out because it looked like Cade was not going to be able to pitch, we got to the bottom of the 6th inning holding onto 1 run lead. Randy asked Cade if he could get the batter out for him. Cade’s eyes lit up and said “Yes, let me pitch to him”.
Anyways, Cade kind of limped out to the mound, took a few warm-up pitches and faced the batter.
Four pitches later, all fast and at the plate, he jumped off the mound with his first save!
It was unbelieveable, four great, hard, accurate pitches and the game was over. Coach Randy called Cade the Closer. He asked Cade if he was nervous. Cade said, “Not really. I just planned on throwing strikes!”
Was an exciting night for a proud mom and dad, too. Jim, thanks and keep up the good work. We appreciate the
confidence you are building. It will always mean more than his ability to pitch. Thanks!”
Mike, Amy and the boys
Classes and Private Lessons We just wanted to thank you and tell you how impressed and happy we are with what you have been doing for Hayden on the mound. He has been able to do more than improve his pitch, accuracy and speed. He gained his confidence and self esteem back which was distracting him.
