I just had a fun conversation with 90mph coach Paul Reddick and I’d like you to listen to the recording.
I learned a couple of things — I listen with different ears now that I have a son that plays. (Now I REALLY get parents’ concern for doing the best for their kids.)
If I have a throwing/pitching question re: CJ, I call Paul.
One of the key themes in our conversation was safety. The body is so dang smart.
If you’re read PLAY BIG, you know our body’s #1 priority is safety, and that there are two safety concerns: physical and emotional.
Did you know that your body won’t speed your arm up faster than it knows it can slow it down? That’s why it’s so important to train your “slow down” muscles.
That’s physical safety.
As for emotional safety, that’s my specialty, and so an exclusive interview with me is now included in the 90mph Club.
What is the 90mph Club? That’s covered in this conversation.
p.s. The call was supposed to go at most 30 minutes but went over — as a result the last 3 minutes got cut off and the call comes to an abrupt end.
