2020 Holiday Training and Pitching Camp
Classes and Private Lessons I am writing you today to let you know how the Command trainer we ordered from Oates Specialties has improved our son William’s pitching command and accuracy. We had the pleasure of driving down to train with Jim early this year, and William was introduced to the trainer at Jim’s facility. Jim told us of the evolution of the trainer as it was used at Ron Wolforth’s ranch in Texas. William has been to the ranch twice, but it was not used in the 3 day boot camps.
After visiting Jim I ordered the trainer. I was hesitant to order another “weapon” to add to William’s arsenal. He was at the age where it was hard to get him to use the gear on a regular basis. He wanted instant results without putting in the “work”. Even Ron’s videos of William’s issues did not get the point across. Fast forward to setting up the trainer in the back yard. William finally got instant results from hitting the target on the trainer. It was better than paying for a coach! He has been out using the trainer between games, sometimes in the dark with his phone blaring Eminem for all the neighbors to hear. Yesterday he pitched a full 6 innings with no pain, striking out 15 in those innings with no walks. He has never stayed on the mound this long with this kind of success. AND, he was radar’d at 75 mph with a friend’s pocket radar. For a 12 year old I can only credit you three (Samantha, take some credit too!) for helping William regain his command, arm health and mental ability to stay on the mound.
Thanks again for being there when I emailed you, ordered from you and visited you. You guys are all the best there is.
-Mary Ann Kempner (son William, 12 yo)
Classes and Private Lessons Jim, I know that if it weren’t for you and your commitment to both Theo and Bobby, they would not have had the successes that they’ve enjoyed over the years. From day one at Meadow’s Park, I’ve always trusted you and believed in what you do. We (Santa Clarita) are very lucky and fortunate to have you looking out for our young pitchers. Continued success to you!
Also, I asked Bobby and he would like to continue with your program in November and of course he would not miss it for anything, so please count him “IN”. Last year, with your program, his arm was in prefect ready shape and he didn’t miss a game or practice due to injury. I attribute his success to the fact that he consistently kept his arm conditioned through participating in your program. I would say off the top of my head that he might have been the only pitcher who did not suffer from some type of injury last year!
Thank you for all that you do for our boys in keeping them safe and injury free!
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “You ran a terrific camp. As you know, we recently sent my son Hunter to a boot camp at Ron’s baseball ranch in Texas and I have a Ron Wolforth DVD collection which I have viewed many times, but I had never seen Ron teach in person until this past weekend. What a treat! Both he and Brent Strom make an unbeatable combination. Add your expertise to the mix and it made for a great learning experience.
Ron communicated very plainly and his upbeat style made it easy to absorb his message. Brent is direct and experienced. As a former major league pitcher, he brought instant credibility and taught his pitching lessons with a great sense of humor and a little salty language. Both Ron and Brent captured the boys attention and held it. They made the boys listen, learn, and laugh.
The Elite Pitcher’s Bootcamp introduced the concepts and training techniques that have proven effective in developing more complete and healthy pitchers. Over the course of the three day camp, players were taught the essential elements that
should lead to greater velocity, improved core body strength, and increased flexibility. The players also learned proper arm care in order to reduce the chance of injury.
The camp integrated the why and the how. First, the players learned the reasons for the various training and then they went through the drills. The sessions were well designed and blended the right amount of learning and doing.
Jim, I thought you nailed it and so did Hunter. He was invigorated and sore by Sunday afternoon.
Many thanks and a job well done.
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp Just a short note to say thank you so much for the great camp. It is a tribute to you and your staff to see my son come home each day, more excited about the game of baseball, and self improvement. Frankly, I am amazed at how you can get them to embrace the drills and exercises in such a competitive manner. For three days, they didn’t scrimmage or even swing a bat, and yet, each day my son would come home pumped and eager for the following day. In the world of highly competitive youth baseball, I applaud you most for keeping it fun.
I look forward to more camps with you in the future.
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!”
