(Part 1 of 4) Why I Teach Pitching Mechanics by FEEL!

Lantz Wheeler Featured Post


The #1 struggle pitchers are facing today, isn’t lack of information… It’s a lack of communication!

That’s why I’m constantly preaching…

“Until a pitcher can FEEL what you’re asking him to do, he will never truly understand.”

Sadly, most of our players don’t have it that easy.

Nowadays you could gather 15 pitching coaches and ask them all the exact same question…

And get 15 totally different answers.

Like I said in the beginning,

The #1 struggle pitchers are facing today, isn’t lack of information… It’s a lack of communication!


Just in case you missed the first part of “Teaching Pitching Mechanics by FEELI sent your way the other day,

Here’s the recap…

  1. FEEL is the body’s native language.
  2. Your body will respond to FEEL for good, or bad. (Feedback is Feedback)
  3. FEEL provides concrete evidence, eliminates the gray area and puts the pitching coach and pitcher, on the exact same page.

Got it?

Here’s the good news.

For the first time ever, I’m actually breaking down the inner-secrets of my FEEL teaching process along with the development system.

And you want to know the true beauty of the system I’m going to be sharing with you?

The FEEL Development System allows me to train my MLB pitchers as well as 10U pitchers in the same room, without the material, or instruction ever changing.

Crazy, huh?

That’s the beauty.

FEEL knows no age or skill level.

But, what does it mean to FEEL?  How do you teach it, you ask?

Let’s start with the first letter, F.


F= Focus

How do you know you’re doing it right, if you don’t know what you’re doing?”


What’s your Focus?

It’s another way of saying “Intent” or “Goal”.

If you don’t have a crystal clear FOCUS of what you’re trying to do…

  • How do you know if you were successful doing it?
  • How do you ever hope to learn the difference between right, and wrong?

And that’s the first problem most coaches and pitchers face, they focus on way too many things.

They understimate the power of “One Thing.”

In other words, they’re thinking of so many different things, they never master anything.


You gotta remember, the body’s always going to revert back to what its always done, unless trained other wise.

In today’s “fast food” society, way too many coaches, parents and pitchers struggle because they never take time to master the basics.

Before you could ever hope to see, or FEEL results, you’ve got to have a single FOCUS for the results or FEEL, you’re trying to see.

Part 1 of FEEL is FOCUS.

Without a crystal clear FOCUS, there will be no FEEL!

Trust what you FEEL!
