Introducing our Umpires – Meet Brian:
Joining us for the second time is Thomas More College pupil, Brian Riddell. Brian was a part of our Grand Finals last year and officiated in the semi-final that was a PMB derby between St Anne’s College and St John’s DSG. Under the guidance of Wanri Venter, Brian will be making strides into umpiring bigger games in the near future.

Home plate meetings...are they really necessary? If you’re going to start our game 40 minutes early without warning can we save the BS 3-5 minutes of talk about imaginary boundary lines, mercy rules and how “tight” the backstop is all around and utilize it to get our players ready??? #youretheboss#umpires#baseball#asinineceremony 🙄
We couldn’t be more proud of these @mlb #umpires taking a moment to Thank God for everything they’ve accomplished up to that moment. Prayers for safe health and a great spirited game. #missionaccomplished
Introducing our Umpires – Meet Mia:
The first umpire to be awarded Most Promising Umpire this year, Piet Retief resident Mia Steenkamp representing Pionier has been invited to further her umpiring career at the Grand Finals at St Mary’s DSG in Kloof in July. We look forward to seeing her this weekend.
A late hand is a supported hand! True, repeatable, supported velocity comes from being able to generate the bulk of your power from the ground. At that point, the arm is merely a carrier. Listen to how late you hear the hand on this gasoline. It’s as it passes the ear. The result? Legit down angle and life on the ball! @baseballauthority
Look at the great patience in this delivery. See how the lower half is clearly secured in the ground prior to the arm and upper body firing through. This is the point in the delivery where power most often leaks. So many pitchers have an issue rotating too early, prior to landing, causing the arm to drag. This is why @coachzinger loves to put his pitchers on VeloPRO. The sensory feedback system provided by VeloPRO will IMMEDIATELY begin teaching you to stay loaded into footstrike, so that you can attain solid heel connection prior to driving the body towards home. Looking to get more out of your game on the mound? You need to add VeloPRO to your bullpens! Visit www.veloprobaseball.com for details!

This slo-Mo really gives you a good look at what correct body position at footstrike looks like. Notice that the upper body is still closed as the front foot gets into the ground. This creates proper support for the arm, and proper energy transfer from the ground up into the hand. So many struggle to get to this position, and rotate early. This pitcher is not currently using VeloPRO, but his is the position that VeloPRO was designed to help you, the athlete, create. From little league to the big leagues, VeloPRO is currently helping thousands maintain this position, and raise the level of their stuff! Should you be getting more out of your game? Get VeloPRO and realize your full potential! @crosspitching
Fantastic, on time delivery here! Look how long the head stays over the back hip, and how the lower body rotation comes AFTER the front heel is in the ground. This is a solid, repeatable armstroke! When the rotation is early, you lose support for your arm and arm drag is created. This leads to inconsistency and stress on the shoulder and elbow. If you get connected to the ground, as seen here, your will be able to get out in front, and utilize the energy from the ground to power the pitch. @socalsteve9 @dr.derek
