The prevalent attitudes about and the approach to baseball pitching-mechanics are endemic, entrenched and of a density that is unchangeable, insurmountable, maddening and demoralizing.
Correct execution of the Outman Methodology™ produces extremely high quality of behavior of the pitched baseball on its flight to the catcher relative to the combined performance factors of velocity of, command over and movement of the pitched baseball (more movement, nearer to the batter movement and more sharply breaking movement) that reliably exerts an incredibly adverse effect on the ability of batters to hit the approaching baseball (far more reliably and far less damagingly to the body of the pitcher than conventional mechanics). Proven and provable by anyone who possesses the requisite talent for pitching a baseball and who, then, gains mastery over correct execution of what is now Finalized Outman Methodology™.
In result, both of my sons, Josh and Zach, were required to abandon my methodology and convert to the visually acceptable, but pitching-performance and health of the elbow of the pitching-arm and the pitching-shoulder inferior, conventional mechanics for pitching a baseball or not be drafted at all…as Josh was not drafted in June, 2004.
That has worked out very poorly for both of my sons. Zach is now entirely out of baseball and Josh is relegated to the bull-pen as a “Lefty Specialist.” In both of their cases, extraordinary pitching talent has been wasted entirely unnecessarily and indefensibly.
In moving in the direction of permanently “pulling the plug” on this blog-site, I have already removed a sizeable amount of material and chosen to synopsize the longer version of the text of many of the “pages” and “posts” on this site.
I have not yet decided on when I will “pull the plug.” I have no time table. Only that I am moving in the direction of retiring from attempting to alter altogether favorably an unalterable baseball pitching-mechanics landscape.
Bottom line, I am both puzzled and weary.
Mind you, the Major League Baseball requirement that a particular mechanical employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball be utilized to the arbitrary exclusion of any alternative employ filters down through every level and age group of the sport of baseball with the same devastating consequences to the health of the pitching-arms of pitchers at every level and age group of the sport of baseball.
For manifold reasons stemming from the physical, psychological, emotional, career and monetary consequences inflicted on them by largely avoidable injuries to the elbow of pitching-arm and to the pitching-shoulder that they are required to suffer, major league baseball pitchers ought to be incensed.
In the mean time, if you like and as you like, peruse what material remains on this site at any given time and, if you do not feel obliged to conform to employing the inferior performance and physically destructive baseball pitching-mechanics that Major League Baseball requires of all baseball pitchers, then, download “The Finalized Outman Methodology™ Instructional Package” while I yet continue to make it available and work toward gaining mastery over its correct execution.
Correct execution of Finalized Outman Methodology™ will allow you to discover to the limits of your capacity for pitching a baseball with a far, far lesser likelihood of shredding the elbow of your pitching-arm and/or your pitching-shoulder in the process.
