Looking for a velocity-adding weighted baseball program?
Steve Delabar’s journey to the major leagues with the Seattle Mariners is a feel-good story anyone could love, right?
Maybe not. Think about it: Why didn’t organized baseball have a velocity development plan for Steve to get him back to where he needed to be? Why did Steve need to explore alternative options by himself to break back into professional baseball?
I wrote about this on my latest short article at The Hardball Times – Steve Delabar: How Organized Baseball Failed Him. Go check it out.
Additionally, there’s also my longer article about Jason Vargas and “The Twist” that he added to his mechanics. It seems to have added some fastball velocity for him, so I broke it down a bit at The Hardball Times.
