Classes and Private Lessons Coach Wagner from TZAcademy really helped me this winter. After just a short period of time working with him, he helped me tremendously. I now throw 90 mph and I am on the way to faster speeds by focusing on just a few things that he asked me to do. He filmed me with high speed video to pinpoint exactly where I needed to focus. Then he gave me a list of exercises and things to do during my workouts and bullpens. I am really thankful that I found out about him.

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!
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 “Thanks for putting on such a fantastic camp. It was very well organized, and the wealth of information that Ron and Brent brought to the table was truly mind-boggling. It was definitely worth the long drive up to Santa Clarita (the drive home was actually a very quick 2 hours!!), and I know that Jonathan got a lot out of it. I’ve tried to teach him that pitching is really a life-long learning process, and that he needs to continually strive to expose himself to new ideas and techniques in order to keep growing as a pitcher. The Boot Camp this past weekend was the perfect example of that, and we’ve had a lot of conversations since we got home about all the things he learned. So it definitely had the desired impact!”

Thanks from a lefty! Years ago at the age of 5, My son Timothy developed a great love for baseball and then pitching as a lefty. I saw the dedication and hard work he was willing to put into the game even at a young age, we were so lucky to have stumbled upon Jim Wagner, the owner of the ThrowZone Baseball Academy (TZAcademy).
WOW…..What a great ride since then!
Let me just say, for any of you who love baseball, and want to become great pitchers and are in it to win it, or just throw the ball with great velocity and control, then I highly recommend TZAcademy. TZA is not only the best pitching academy in the Santa Clarita Valley but also probably one of the best in the country. Jim Wagner, and his long time associate, Warren Bauer, are two of the most knowledgeable pitching instructors in the business. Even if you just have questions regarding your child and their pitching you definitely need to know you can contact them even if it is just for good, friendly advice, they will always help you and are two of the nicest people I know.
Their level of instruction for pitchers and throwing in my opinion is second to none and the most top quality of anyone in baseball. Not only do they work on proper mechanics, arm strength and conditioning, they also work on something that is equally important, the mental side of the game when you are on the mound under pressure, and also very important, the shut down time for pitchers. They get to know you personally and even give you good life skill advice. Pitching is definitely an art and has to be developed over a period of time, it is definitely a process. Many will have failures, but with the proper training you will have many great successes as well to prepare you for the next level. We all know as baseball players, your failures will definitely be part of your successes, they will guide you through this process. The workouts are challenging but fun. Everyone that participates is treated as an individual and like family. They also know everyone is a different size and shape, no matter who you are, they can help you gain knowledge, strength for both your velocity and power for the mental side of the game. So, they take who and what you are into account and work with you to build you up to the best player you can possibly be. They guide you like uncles, They make sure that your body is not being over worked, and in the great aspects of conditioning its not only about your arms but your upper and lower body also, which fits well with their strength training process. Your eating habits are a big factor in muscle development as well. It is a one stop shop for all your leaguers needs. I couldn’t be happier having a great academy of this caliber right here in our own backyard.
We owe much thanks to Jim and Warren, for all the progress and accolades that my son Timothy has achieved. We could not have done it without them and Tim's hard work and dedication. He just recently signed his pitching scholarship to one of the most prestigious pitching schools in the country, Cal State University, Fullerton. Some of his other accolades from the past consist of All-Foothill League Pitcher of the Year, All- Area First team, All -State, All-Signal newspaper and All- American. This could not have happened without the training and insight at TZAcademy. I highly recommend TZAcademy to any baseball player who wants to become their very best. Jim and Warren know their stuff!
