Tom House helped develop these athletes into the great pitchers they became-Hall of Famers and Cy Young award winners. Having spent 20 years in the Major Leagues as a pitcher and pitching coach, and more than that studying the science of pitching, House was well-prepared to unleash the maximum potential from his star pitcher pupils. Now, in the new edition of his highly acclaimed The Pitching Edge, House accomplishes through a book what he has been doing directly for decades with pitching prodigies.
To House, pitchers are products of four things-their genes, their degree of mastery of the pitching motion, their level of physical conditioning, and their mental toughness and skills. The first factor cannot be changed; the other three can, and they form the three parts of The Pitching Edge.
