The pages in this remarkable resource, Arm Action, Arm Path, and the Perfect Pitch: Building a Million-Dollar Arm, offer a perfect blend of medical science, exercise science, and coaching science. The book clarifies conventional wisdom about pitching and quantifies three-dimensional motion-analysis research on the mechanics of a pitcher's delivery. House and Thorburn wrote this book with the hope that it will become the science-based guide to pitching health and performance for baseball coaches, parents, and athletes at all competitive levels with chapters covering the setup, lift-off, stride and momentum, release-point efficiency, and looking ahead. The book includes a 42-minute DVD covering fitness on the field, lower-body exercises, upper-body exercises, and abdominal exercises. The DVD wraps everything up with chapters on applicable skills and drills.
