MULTIPLE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR COACHING PROBLEMS. A BOOK THAT WORKS!
Coaching pitchers requires much more than knowledge of the physical motion of pitching. Effective pitching instruction also incorporates a structured, efficient plan and communication methods effective with—and often unique to—youth baseball players. This book provides that plan, outlining the steps to follow when working with a pitcher, and helps the coach place a pitcher in the best possible position to experience pitching success with a healthy arm.
This book embodies positive youth coaching and the development of today’s athletes. Dan’s understanding of the mechanics of pitching is impressive, and he communicates in a fashion that is understandable for all. Coaching takes a plan, and Dan helps to provide that plan.

Dan Keller offers insight into the MOST IMPORTANT part of training the pitching motion
TRUST AN EXPERT
Although it may seem that the mechanics of pitching have not changed for the last hundred years, the nuances of instructing young pitchers are constantly evolving. This book contains the most effective methods known for working with young athletes, complete with tips and drills, throwing loads and quantities, common mistakes and remedies, and valuable sample lesson plans. Dan Keller has been working with pitchers since 2001, having done more than 15,000 individual lessons. Well past the “ten thousand hour” rule of mastery, Dan humbly stands behind this book offering this simple quote: “I wish this book existing when I started working with pitchers. I searched and searched for a plan for where to start and how to coach pitchers. THIS book is THAT plan!”
Since the previous edition of Coaching the Beginning Pitcher, I’ve spent an additional eight years as a professional instructor (total pitching lessons provided eclipsed 15,000), three years as a collegiate pitching coach, driven deeper into advanced mechanics associated with velocity and power production, and earned a Master’s Degree in Physical Education.
Each chapter has been updated, edited, or altogether rewritten with the experience of eight additional years spent in the bullpen. With humble respect for the challenges of teaching pitcher, Coaching the Beginning Pitcher, Third Edition, is complete!
