Read What They are Saying About The Texas Baseball Ranch Camp At Fastball USA
The Fall 2016 Camp Was Sold Out
" I really enjoyed Mr. Wallace speak this weekend. His knowledge on pitching is top notch. He gave me so many things to look at and think about. My son has learned so much from him.
I also appreciate flints comments on baseball recruiting, and the process in general. His attitude and "glass is half full" perspective was inspiring. Tony Robbins has nothing on him!
Rod Jensen Eden Prairie,MN
I would really encourage any kid to attend either the Texas Baseball Ranch or Fastball USA if they want to be at their best. My son brought a teammate to this camp because of his previous camp experience.
If any player has arm issue or velocity concerns, you need to attend this camp.
Tim Parker St.Joseph,IL
Look at what CJ Wilson had to say about the Ranch
"Ron edcuates much better than other coaches!". I never got my hands on Ron's method until was already in the Major Leagues. He's one of the most well versed guys I've ever encountered.
CJ Wilson, Pitcher, Los Angeles Angels
CJ Wilson Wishes He Met Coach Wolforth Earlier but is thankful for his knowledge
Ron develops velocity, but it's much more than that. He promotes arm health, control, command. He combines all of thee different aspects of pitching, trying to overcome a lot of mis-teachings by uninformed coaches. He's also an excellent communicator, with a unique way of encapsulating information and making it usable."

110% satisfied with the Wolforth and Wallace camp
"First off you all were great in accomodating us, all of us from Kansas City felt very welcome at your facility. The camp was amazing, it opened my eyes on how the proper throwing motion and movement is supposed to be done. The awesome part was that after the video evaluation of my son, we are able to work on all issues he has with the drills we were taught at the camp. 110% satisfied with the Wolforth and Wallace camp and I would recommend it to everyone that has a kid in baseball. My son has already asked if we can do it again next year. Thanks again for everything."

Velocity Enhancement and Arm Health
From 45 to 53 mph in 1 weekend!
Carter, my son, has hit 45 mph a few times at practice by the end of the weekend he hit 53 mph! The best part is that he did it with less arm pain. Seeing him pump his fist and get excited was worth every dollar spent.
The best baseball experience I've ever had!
This was the best baseball experience I've ever had as a player, and as a coach! After the event I told my parents that this is an event that they can't afford not to go to next year. Wolforth & Wallace set themselves apart because they provide OBJECTIVE evidence to back up what they're teaching, instead of passed down subjective knowledge. They also have drills to reinforce every thing they teach. I'm looking forward to implementing what we learned into our program!
Inside Edge academy
Coach Wolforth, Coach Wallace and Coach Ryan:
One MPH At A Time!
Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to put on this event. I know how travel like this can be so hard to do, taking time away from your families, etc. Perhaps it will help to let you know: My son (a HS Freshman) was so excited about the program that he put together a summary of all the things he gained from it for his mom, coach, etc. His mom was blown away! Your story about the Navy Seal who crawled 7 miles to safety "one line at a time" was particularly inspiring to him -- so much so that, get this -- he put together a schedule of how, ONE MPH AT A TIME, he hopes to reach his target velocity by graduation time! If he gets an add'l mph faster than hoped for, he plans to reward himself by extending out the other milestones ... i.e., give him more time to get each new mph. We'll let you know how it goes!
I would definitely encourage kids to attend the Ron Wolforth camp next time around. Both Mr. Wolforth and Mr. Wallace were very informative and did a tremendous job. My son picked up knowledge on how to increase his pitching velocity with the extra adjustments (drills) that were pointed out to him.

The Video Analysis Breakdown Personalizes The Program To Help Each Individual
The Video Analysis is a powerful part of the pitching Camp
The Video Analysis is a huge part of the Texas Baseball Ranch programs and the new camp will take the video analysis to another level. Each player will receive video analysis using the Ranch high speed video camera capturing multiple angles at the same time.
This technology allows players to see exactly what they need to improve, and eliminates guessing which is often associated with instruction. The multiple angles on every one pitch allows the for more in-depth analysis.
Hyper-Personalization To Each Individual Athlete is Key In Maximizing performance and reducing chances of injury

Addressing Physical Constraints to Un-lock velocity and arm health
The hyper personalization of training is crucial to maximize success
Lower Half Efficiency is emphasized through both drills and visual examples of how to use the lower half by feeling and seeing it. Using the legs is something that should be felt, not just talked about
Players experience seeing the movements with visuals during classroom type segments before applying it through the drill segments. Here Flint Wallace discusses what long lasting healthy pitchers have in common

Those Who Have Attended Past Ranch Camps at Fastball USA Say This....
I definitely learned quite a bit, especially in regards to pain and video analysis. As a travel ball coach this informaiton is priceless. I will be able to implement the drills and ideas into my own instruction.
This was my son's first camp and it was incredible.
Ron's insight and philosophy are fantastic and very easily understandable. I really liked was that he really relates well with the kids and has a great message that doesn't apply to only baseball. Thank you to Fastball USA for hosting this camp and thanks again to Ron! I hope we can make it back in the future.

Never Experienced This Before!
Never Experienced This Before
We have been to so many baseball academies but we have never experienced in depth, hands on, student specific breakdown of our son's pitching delivery. He now knows what steps and corrections that will delivery 8-12mph on the mound. Ron de-mistified the pitching delivery and saved his arm in a weekend.
Thanks Ron and Mike!
A Wealth Of Knowledge
As a parent experiencing this event for the 2nd time, I can't express enough my thanks for the wealth of knowledge that Ron Wolforth has taught my son and our family. The learning of new techniques that improve velocity while preventing arm injuries is priceless!
Coach Ron Wolforth and staff provide the tools and positive work ethics to help athletes improve in mind and body. I enjoy the humor that's added to the positive motivation training. The belief that one can achieve is not a dream, but reality if you can improve .038% everyday.
John Thomas, our son, has greatly benefited in this program and his passion to be in the MLB has instilled a drive to believe and achieve.
Thanks and see you in February.

Read What These Participants Had to Say about the Ron Wolforth Pitching Camp
“ It was the best pitching camp I have ever been to! It covered everything a pitcher should do, not only throwing wise, but the complete package. Stretching, thinking, core training, and even our mind.
Getting advice on what I need to work on as a pitcher, especially being older was outstanding. Also learning the routine is not only great for a pitcher, but any coach or parent involved in baseball. Overall a weekend spent with Ron is 3 days that will have an affect on the rest of your life. “
Michael Keller Colfax, Illinois
I have been changed by this camp because the new information I have learned. I learned I need to get my pelvis out further to gain more MPH, and I have improved my posture which has helped my control.
I now have a different outlook on how I will approach things. For example believing in myself and now I have set a goal to reach 85mph.
I would recommend to anyone to come to this camp because it will change your views and your ability as a pitcher. I also recommend to come to Fastball USA for weekly training like I have done.
Charlie Jerger Chicago, IL
This camp was an inspirational an eye opening experience for me. The drills, workout, techniques and mental way of looking at pitching possibilities are all amazing. I have lifted weights and done other workouts, but none like these explosive activities.
I would greatly recommend this to anyone who is seriously interested in taking the first steps to becoming a better pitcher. You will not leave this camp thinking it was a waste of time….I promise.
There is so much to gain from this camp it would be a mistake to pass up the opportunity.
This camp has really changed the way I think about pitching. Coach Wolforth is an infulencital voice in pitching for me. This camp has also given me new ways to boost my pitching speed and I would recommend this camp for others (un-less they are up against me for a spot!)
This was the most motivational pitching camp I have ever attended and if there is every an opportunity I would come back again, and again and again.
I went to the past Wolforth camp last year and I learned new things about pitching again this year. I found myself pushing myself this past year in the different directions because of what I learned at the Wolforth camp.
I am going to turn 22 in November, and never quit on myself as a pitcher. My goal is to pitch 90mph and Coach Wolforth has helped me to get closer to achieving that goal.
We drove 5 hours to attend the Ron Wolforth Clinic at Fastball USA and it was really worth it. I like the way Ron teaches and I liked taking notes during lecture sessions and topics of pitch counts, and the motivational clips. The new drills with throwing and improving strength were awesome. Thanks Coach Wolforth!
Joseph Omilinsky Egg Harbor, Wisconsin
This was the best pitching camp I ‘ve ever been to! I learned to push beyond my mental limitations and my body is capable of great things. It's amazing how not many pitchers lead with their pelvis anymore and no coaches teach it.
I think I will be able to throw much harder and accurate because of what I have learned from Coach Wolforth this weekend. I love how he analyzes hall of fame pitchers and their mechanics and gives easily understood drills to improve MOVEMENTS and not the more common, contemporary pitching coach faux pas positions.
“This camp completely changed my view about Pitching. I have introduced to new workouts and exercises that improve velocity and command. Ron has encouraged me not to give up and it is ok to fail but get right back to it so I can succeed.
This camp has taught me if you really want to be the best you can possibly be you want to see Coach Wolforth. Your mind and your heart have to change for your arm and body to change.
I will come back to any camps Ron Wolforth has here in Chicago. This camp was hands down the best pitching camp I have ever been to”
Kristofer Hiatt Rochester, Indiana
This camp was amazing. Coach Wolforth explains everything that is needed to throw harder and to make you go further. I learned a lot about what to do and what NOT to do. The drills are designed to help you throw harder and help pitching.
Coach Wolforth emphasized it really does not matter where you start, it matters where you finish. Thanks Coach Wolforth.
Zack Fortunato Age 13
"I loved this camp! We did drills that I have never seen before. Coach Wolforth told me to move my pelvis out more and when I do this I feel more explosive. I learned the importance of being quick with my arm action and drills to blend into my pitching delivery."
“ This was the most challenging camp I have ever attended and I had a lot fun. I hit 83mph for the first time.I learned a lot from Coach Wolforth including the concepts of pelvic loading and that I needed to change my total belief system when it comes to pitching. Coach Wolforth also personalized the drills to fit my specific needs.”
