Coach Eric's Top Training tools for Pitching

1. Driveline Leather Weighted Baseballs

A Pitcher's arm needs to be fit. One of the fastest ways to add 10-15 mph to your fastball is to train with weighted balls following a safe program. These are the best weighted balls on the market and clearly labeled and color coded for easy reference.  
2. Resistance Bands

A must-have for every pitcher. No need to go out and buy an expensive name brand product.  This simple set works great at strengthening and protecting the shoulder muscles from the heavy load of bullpen sessions. Use this everyday as a warm-up before practice, recovery workout, or injury rehabilitation.
3. Pocket Radar: Ball Coach

It is very important to test your velocity every other month or so to track your improvement. If you're serious about increasing your velocity, you need a radar gun. However, there is no need to go out and spend $1000 on one.  The Pocket Radar: Ball Coach is just as accurate for a fraction of the price, and it fits easily in your baseball bag.
4. Power Core 360 - Advanced

This is by far the best resistance training device that's ever been created for baseball players. Not only is it great for pitching traingin, but also hitting and catching. It's simply revolutionary.
