"Welcome & Farewell"----By Fritz Outman

Finalized Outman Methodology™ for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane is not simply some novelty approach to pitching a baseball; is not simply some “off the wall”, fringe mechanical employ of the human physiology for pitching a baseball.
 
No, Finalized Outman Methodology™ for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane is the real deal!  It is everything I claim it to be.  I personally employ Finalized Outman Methodology™ for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane, as noted in the synopsis of “Still Competing on the Mound.”
 
And, as noted in the synopsis of “Still Competing on the Mound”, I am rapidly approaching the age of 64, which is why this “Welcome” is also a “Farewell.”

I have unsuccessfully struggled against the current on the topic of baseball pitching mechanics for too long already.

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.
 
I have, at my age, simply “run out of gas” necessary to continue attempting to educate the uneducable, to enlighten those who cannot be enlightened.
 
I have lately and more frequently experienced slipping unconcernedly into the gaping maw of total apathy regards the topic of baseball pitching-mechanics.

Well beyond a dozen years ago I demonstrated the superiority of the Outman Methodology™ for pitching a baseball on the vertical plane over all variations on the theme of the so-called conventional mechanical approach for pitching a baseball.

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™.

Unfortunately for me (and for everyone else who was subsequently scared off), although major league scouts were attracted by the very high quality of baseball pitching-performance that my eldest son Josh demonstrated on the mound (which included a 95 mph fast ball), they deemed his very high quality of baseball pitching-performance on the mound irrelevant because they further judged his appearance while producing that very high quality of baseball pitching-performance on the mound to be “unacceptable”, which is precisely what Josh was told by a major league scout in explanation of why Josh was not drafted in June of 2004, while several pitchers whom he had faced and whose teams he had defeated during the previous college baseball season were drafted.

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.

The practical effect of the above has been that Outman Methodology™ was banned over a decade ago by Major League Baseball, which ban I have been unable to overcome and have now reached a point of not caring.
.
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.

I am puzzled (to put it mildly) by the collective acceptance by major league baseball pitchers of the requirement by Major League Baseball that they employ baseball pitching-mechanics that hazard a 50% likelihood of destroying the elbows of their pitching-arms and/or their pitching-shoulders (even multiple times) when my higher performing and far, far less damaging mechanical employ of the human physiology is available, but is arbitrarily banned from being tried.

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.

It happens to be the case that, by one means or another, as a collective, major league baseball pitchers are uniquely positioned to change the baseball pitching-mechanics “landscape” for the betterment of baseball pitchers at every level and every 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.
 
Puzzlingly, they are not.

And, I am simply weary, very weary of contending with inane defenses of and support for so-called conventional mechanics for pitching a baseball the severe performance and health of the pitching-arm deficiencies of which should be both obvious to everyone and rebelled at by everyone.

I will keep this site available for in indefinite period of time paring it down when and to the degree that the spirit moves me…eventually shutting it down entirely.

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.
