Am I getting the imformation I need to make my pitcher the best she can be? "Video was my tool for helping myself to become a fastpitch pitcher and I have been videoing the fastpitch pitching motion since the mid '80's " Jimmy Dyson

I am one of the few pitching instructors that do not have the students bring a catcher. If you know how to read the ball, you can make a guesstimate on what is happening in the motion. You can ask my parents, I have and can... catch a Marissa Drewery (Cal Berkeley, pitched in the super regional that was broadcast on ESPN, losing in the 9th inning to #1 Florida) pitching in the 67-68 range... I can still instruct her... to a degree ! I believe I can see (catching/instructing) as good as any pitching coach in the country. Their is no way I will see everything in the pitching motion without video! I show proof why it is important to video the pitching motion! I will have a short video on one of our students pitching motion...Otto was at my house when I was making her DVD. We had a 4 view with 2 different angles... at a certain point in the pitch I asked Otto "what do you think"? I will have Otto's remarks on that day with this video... I know it just reinforced our belief of videoing! We will be offering the students Motion Capture Analysis online in the near future. The student will be able to upload or e-mail me game or practice video... We will be able to telestrate with voice over- the pitching motion using the internet, no travel time or playing phone tag trying to figure what is wrong! We will have a game plan on what to work on before and at the next lesson. I will be offering a hitting DVD with your swing next to Crystol Bustos, Stacey Nuevman or Jessica Mendosa to name a few... very reasonable cost! I want our students to be the best softball player as possible. This will be available on my new web site www.jimmydyson.com This web site will be password protected. Only our students will be able to see demonstrations of movements etc. This is where the students videos will be stored. I will have an update on when we are offering this in the near future
