    This is an honest question (two, actually)-I'm NOT slamming Bill, but I've never gotten ANY kind of answer.

    Here goes:
    When did Bill break from Doc's methods and training? And if he had problems with it, why did he attempt to get Doc to sign a contract giving him the rights to market Doc's stuff last spring?
    I have no idea nor do I care. Bill presented help when help was needed and that help came in an understandable package that I can teach. Until then I was wandering.

    Bill was nice enough to be a clinician at our annual coaches' clinic (200 coaches) last week.

    Many of you know this, but for those who are new... (short version)

    I have been following Doc for years and read everything he published to include his research. In 25 years of coaching I never felt comfortable with the way in which we teach pitching. Doc's work convinced me why. I visited Doc and found what he found had merit. The problem was his methods are geared toward older players - Doc himself has said he does not believe youngsters should be pitching - leaving those of us who teach coaches who teach youngsters without a viable plan to alter. Also Doc's plan was at best confusing and too lengthy for the "average" coach (the volunteer), nor does the average traditionalist buy into the plan creating - in many cases- a hopeless situation. Bill worked on this and developed methods that are easy to teach and explain. I started using this season and found it easy to teach. Using this technique I have found - for the first time in many years (age 52+)- that I have muscle soreness and not joint pain and more important the players took to it like a duck to water.

    As far as pay to view sites. This is not atypical and should not be a big suprise. Many of the higher quality focussed sites have some form of payment as this is what these guys do for a living. I gladly pay a nominal fee for good information, at least here I get to discuss what I learn unlike a DVD or book where it is what it is, whether I agree/understand or not.

    I think Bill Peterson's and my ideas about proper pitching mechanics are very similar. We've both been influenced by the same ideas of Dr. Mike Marshall, but have the same problems with some of his ideas. Our ideas are also similar to those of a friend who works at the major league level.

    If you find any SCARY riff raff please give us a heads up on who they are, so we can all avoid them.

    Thanks.
    I joined yesterday, but get a pop up saying that I cannot read/post on the forums unless I have a paid subscription.

    I think you're getting a "premium membership" because of who you are-which is fine. John Q. Public apparently has to pay however.

    Coach45 on this site. Bill Peterson is his name. His son went through Marshall's training camps and both were involved in the Colorado fiasco (amongst other conflicts). He believes Marshall's mechanics are responsible for injuries to the shoulder.

    You can find posts between Joe Williams (fastbal95) and him on this site in the post "You've got me questioning my son's pitching mechanics," or you can read his blog here.

    Personally, I think the information he has on his site is very interesting and that his take on Marshall's mechanics are both evidence-based and refreshing.
