Driveline Baseball is still around, don’t worry. The lack of updates has been due to a bunch of factors, including the rapidly-approaching birth of my son, Tycho. (July 13th sure is a lot closer than I thought it would be a few months ago…)
Our players are in the short break between HS competition and select baseball, so they’re in the facility working their butts off.
Personally, I’ve been sidelined with a stress fracture in my lumbar spine (which is mostly healed, thankfully) and terrible adhesions in my right leg, which I’m getting ironed out (almost literally). Something to remember: Friction massages intended to break up adhesions and relax your IT band are extremely, extremely painful.
I have a Hardball Times post coming up about Seattle Mariners’ outfielder Michael Saunders’ swing changes from 2010 to 2011 and why he’s struggling at the big-league level right now, so look for that sometime next week. I also have some blog posts for here detailing more about velocity development and more video/pictures of the facility in action.
Thanks for sticking around!
