"Fastball USA Prepared Me For Pro Ball"
Just wanted to let you know that we do nearly all the same arm care here With KC as we did at Fastball USA.
We do numerous variations of all of the arm care on an everyday basis, and also we do ALOT of the flexibiltiy and pre workout warmups that we did at fastball. Fastball USA certainly prepared me for pro ball. Currently I have over 100 innings on my arm this year, and I have to thank you for teaching me the importance of arm care.
In the past, my arm would usually be in pain around this time of year, and I would be experiencing "dead arm". But currently my velocity is still sitting in the 90-93 range and topping around 95mph.
Once again, I just wanted to thank you for everything, and please continue to stress the importance of arm care, flexibility, and good old fashioned hard work to the rest of the guys.

"We are very thankful to have Gavin train with you at Fastball USA youth class ever since he was 7 years old back in the fall of 2015."
Your guidance on mindset, life lessons and training techniques helped Gavin build up his confidence and physical tools (athleticism, speed, hitting power and throwing velocity) needed in order to stand out and compete against the skilled and physically bigger kids in his age group at any tryout or tournament.
Even when he first started, the age adjustable home run derby game you introduced is something he always has a lot fun with and build his interest in the game with those aggressive explosive confident swings just like the big leaguers.
The mixed aged training atmosphere at Fastball USA group classes is really special and always challenge the kids to challenge themselves to improve 1% each session with iron sharpening irons, younger kids looking up the the older kids to see how they do things.
We highly recommend Coach Mike Ryan and Fastball USA to any other baseball parents who is serious about helping their kid develop in the game. This program has been a gamechanger for Gavin's development.
