What is it going to take to move your game to the next level?

1Solving Your Personal Pitching Challenge

Without a doubt, most baseball coaching today is done with a ‘one size fits all’ approach and expecting the athlete to simply figure it out for themselves. A vast majority of athletes get distracted and caught up in the peripheral things which at the end of the day just don’t matter - and that’s because

they just don’t know the right questions to ask
  • What is personally YOUR biggest constraint? What ...exactly... is keeping you from breaking through?
  • What Is your most significant limitation? What...specifically... do you need to get fixed, corrected, augmented or enhanced before you make that next jump up in levels?
  • What is your single largest frustration with your performance?

As a young athlete, you might not even know how to answer those questions yet. On the other hand - you might already intuitively know there are several worrisome symptoms regarding your performance but the REAL root causes are still hidden from you because so far you haven’t got in front of the right people who can guide you through those tough challenges

Coaches you had before might have said things like this:

“It’s all in your head - you need to get over it”

“Your technique is off - you need to adjust”


“You're just a Thumber”

“You’ll never throw hard”

“Don’t do what you just did”

It is really very easy to gain Velocity when you know what you’re doing

Does that sound familiar to you? Have you heard that said to you or maybe even others that you play with?

That’s USELESS coaching advice. Nobody knows what to do with it because it’s all just critique designed to pass the buck of coaching failure to you - the pitching coach is holding up his hands and really saying “Hey Man, It’s not MY fault - it’s YOUR fault”

The Single most important ANSWER for you is your answer to this Fundamental Question:

How much improvement would change your life?

I was already throwing 93 at Rice University and I came to Coach Ron in secret because I was hiding a debilitating pain and didn’t want my coaches to know. It was Durathro System the most helpful and humbling thing I’ve ever done.

This Is What Some Athletes Like You Said

I was already throwing 93 at Rice University and I came to Coach Ron in secret

because I was hiding a debilitating pain and didn’t want my coaches to know.
It was [Durathro System] the most helpful and humbling thing I’ve ever done.

I’m a very solid ‘pitcher’ I just don’t throw hard enough

to get the attention of scouts and/or recruiters. I’m afraid if I don’t throw with more velocity, opportunities to pitch at the next level may begin to shrink and possibly even disappear altogether.

I’ve been told for years I’m not using my legs and hips enough.

I know in my heart I’ve got so much left in my tank if I could just solve this piece of the puzzle. So far, no one can help me. They just tell me to push or drive harder and that messes me up big time.

I’d immediately throw harder if I could solve my nagging elbow and/or shoulder issues.

People tell me it’s ‘mechanics’ but no one can show or tell me exactly where I’m breaking down. They just give me these generic, one size fits all phases like, ‘you’re flying open’, ‘you’re dragging your arm’ or ‘you’re dropping your elbow’. That advice has been useless. I don’t feel any of this. I’m also afraid if I don’t address this I will be headed to surgery at some point and I definitely don’t want that.

I’m really good, then I’m really bad.

I’m awesome one game and stink the next. People tell me it’s all mental but I don’t think that’s the problem. If I could simply be more consistent, it would change my life and my career.

I really struggle with confidence.

It’s always been difficult for me to be completely confident. I don’t need a pep talk or a theory, I need a process. I know if I was just a little more confident, I would pitch better.

I really struggle with my breaking ball or off speed pitches.

Either they don’t move or I can’t get them over for strikes on a regular basis. With my style, should I throw a curve or slider? Should I throw a circle change or a straight change? People give me lots of advice but little direction with regards to my secondary pitches.

I throw hard enough but my control stinks.

I’m either high to my arm side or low in the dirt to my glove side. People are constantly telling me to slow down and throw strikes but when I do that my velocity drops and I don’t throw any more strikes. I’m really lost on what to do. If I had better command I feel I would dominate hitters.

Can you relate to these challenges, because if you can you are not alone.

I can show you how to change the dynamic of your own movement pattern in just 21 days of following the same proven system that has helped 76 of our clients become drafted.

Awareness in Itself is Curative!

Our Durathro System gives you the awareness of NOW because you cannot possibly changeto the preferred if you do not know where you are now


2The System To Get More Velocity

  • Develop a healthy, durable arm. (Most of the population has very little clue on how to do this and the conventional wisdom is horrible in this regard, this is one major reason arm injuries are at an epidemic proportion)
  • Develop a connected, efficient movement pattern. Develop a connected, efficient movement pattern. (Sounds simple but without a plan a vast majority of pitchers, even at the professional levels, are disconnected to some degree.)
  • Build a bigger motor. (Develop skill specific strength, specific to throwing a baseball, not powerlifting, body building or football strength.)
  • Train neuromuscular firing by utilizing the under load / overload concept.
  • Understand the Bernstein Principle and the critical nature of ‘Intent’. Maybe nothing is more important to velocity development than understanding these two concepts and how to apply them in your training
  • Objectively measure everything you can from your warm up to your recovery
  • Regular check ups and assessments to make certain you are on track

The Durathro System is a multitudinous equation of massive simultaneous action


It hit me on all fronts at the same time - and it just works!


Young athletes often cavalierly throw around powerful adjectives without giving their impact a second thought. I have to tell you that in all my years of coaching I have met very few ‘horrible players” and I have meet few truly “awesome players” - no matter what they have been told by their coaches, friends or family.

Every athlete’s sweet spot in training is to get past these arbitrary labels- live in the present and make the very most out of today’s training

Our system is best described as a series of nine interconnected cogs because tuning up and turning even one area produces massive leverage, while turing them all together produces the best results.

3How To Execute Your Plan To Change Your Game!

1. You must START with the Pain

Everything else we are trying to obtain; velocity, command, deception, movement, feel, pitch-ability, ,recovery, consistency and workload etc. is impossible without arm health and durability. It must be priority #1.

The Durathro System has a series of Audits, which are locked away inside the Members Area, but here’s an example of a few questions:

Pain Audit

The Pain Audit is a series of questions asked and recorded by Coach, and the answers will inform his design of your personal program to manage, mitigate and monitor your specific arm pain

Mindset Audit

The Mindset Audit is a set of challenging questions to stretch your mind and measure your strength and limitations relating to the way you think about your performance.

Performance Audit

This audit is designed to measure your range of motion, flexibility, mobility, strength and stability.

The Answers to removing your biggest constraint start with our assessment of the information you provide. It informs everything else in your Plan.

2. You must develop command of your Secondary stuff.

A pitcher’s ability to throw his secondary pitches for strikes in fastball counts absolutely and profoundly changes the interaction between hitter and pitcher. Hitting is timing and pitching therefore must be all about making ‘being on time’ exceptionally difficult for the hitter.

TBR Membership has a free BLUE level with introductory content to try out and several levels of progression in the content reserved for the RED level with programs to suit all budgets.

3. You must a least throw as hard as your competitive peer group and preferably 2-5 mph harder than your competitive peer group.

Like it or not, the harsh reality is that the first thing scouts and recruiters at your ‘next level of competition’ will look at is your radar readings.

At the very LEAST have your velocity not be areason to be eliminated from consideration immediately and second, a velocity of 2-5 above your competitive peers will give you a distinct advantage. Make developing that edge be a priority.

4. You must recover well enough from outing to outing to give yourself your best opportunity to have a consistent/ repeatable performance.

Like it or not, the harsh reality is that the first thing scouts and recruiters at your ‘next level of competition’ will look at is your radar readings. At the very LEAST have your velocity not be a reason to be eliminated from consideration immediately and second, a velocity of 2-5 above your competitive peers will give you a distinct advantage. Make developing that edge be a priority.


4Your Character

You must become resistant to frustration, discouragement and dispiritedness.

In sports and life in general and in baseball especially, failure, set backs and challenges are absolutes. Therefore if you are easily frustrated, discouraged or disappointed, you have absolutely zero chance to progress to the highest levels of competition. You must systematically develop your ability to overcome frustration, discouragement and disappointment. Again that doesn’t occur by accident. It must be developed on purpose.

You must become a young man of integrity, honor and reliability.

Matthew 16:26 “For what doth a man profit if he gains the whole world but forfeits his soul.” I don’t think adding any other comments here are necessary.

Start with a daily focus on ANY pain or discomfort. Do not ignore it or minimize it. There indeed is a reason for it and it’s almost assuredly not because you slept wrong on it.

Have a specific, personalized plan for the off season, preseason and in season. (Rest is not a plan)!

  • Systematically prepare the soft tissue of the shoulder and elbow for the specific amount and intensity of stress in which it will be placed under during the expected season. (Rest is not preparation)
  • Develop strength in the prime movers so that over the course of a long season the trunk, core, pelvis, glutes and legs are the major engines that create force and the load will not be primarily dependent upon the arm, elbow or shoulder
  • Create strength balance, structural alignment and physical symmetry so the body accelerates and decelerates itself as efficiently as possible and works as a synchronized unit
  • Eliminate / reduce mechanical inefficiencies and disconnections which may add exponential stress to soft tissue
  • Have a specific and personalized warm-up process that leaves the athlete completely ready to do battle
  • Have a specific and personalized recovery process that includes post game cool down and preparation between starts
  • Closely monitor workloads: How much, how often, how many per inning, how many per outing and how much per year
  • Monitor your sleep, your nutrition and hydration, all affect your ability to recover
  • Create a competent team around you which includes a physical therapist, a chiropractor, a strength coach, a mobility/ flexiblity coach, a nutritionist and a pitching coach, all who know you, your goals, your aspirations, your workload and your constraints and limitations
