What Is a Growth Plate Injury?
Coaches at our baseball training camps know that, when you have a soft tissue injury (UCL, labrum, rotor cuff) that doesn’t result in catastrophic failure, it’s very important during the rehab process that you provide controlled stress to organize the healing tissue along the line of resistance.
Why We Don’t Run Long Distances
Unless your team is really bad at managing rundowns, the longest pay in baseball is an inside the park homerun, takes about 14-16 seconds to complete, and the only guy who has to run that far is the guy who hit the ball. Everyone else is about 4 seconds or less and a pitch takes about 1.5 seconds.

Welcome To TWITs Anonymous
My name is Randy Sullivan, and I am a recovering TWIT coach. For years my coaching style involved a traditional style that has come to be popularly known as TWIT Coaching. Here’s the basic formula for TWIT coaching: T: We Tell the player how to perform a skill (maybe even demonstrate it.) W: We Watch him do it. I: We stop Immediately Inform of all the things he did wrong. T: Then we Tell him how to do it better (sometimes demonstrating again while pointing out the most intricate details of the movement). If the player doesn’t get it quickly enough, we make him do punishment runs or pushups.

According to advocates of this tenet, pitchers and hitters should rotate the pelvis while the torso remains closed for as long as possible. The resultant diagonal stretch through the trunk allows the athlete to take advantage of the elastic properties of the abdominals, and chest muscles to store and then unload energy to be transferred from the lower half to the arm or bat.
Orthopedic Surgeons Endorse ARMory’s Approach
I said it - "there is no such thing as overuse! Injuries come from incorrect use over a long period of time". I got nuked on social media. But then Orthopedic Surgeons across the country came to our defense by agreeing and endorsing our process at the The Florida Baseball ARMory.
