27-Feb-07: Pitchers Beware - Long toss is BAD!

I pitched throughout the entirety of my baseball career, from age 5 to 20 (That's me in the pciture below). One of the things I hated the most throughout that entire time was long toss. In case you are not familiar with baseball, long toss is the practice of having pitchers play catch with a partner stationed at a distance far beyond the normal range of game throwing. For instance, at the high school level and above, the pitcher throws a ball 60 feet, 6 inches. Long toss for a pitcher would involve throwing the ball 2 or 3 times that distance or more.

All those years, I hated long toss. The long toss portion of practice was the worst 12 to 15 minutes of my day in college because it was like once I got to about 90 feet, it felt like someone was both wrapping a bull rope around my arm above my elbow, but it also felt like my tricep was being stabbed with a pitchfork.

The worst thing about it, besides the pain, is that I never got any stronger and never threw any harder!

I've been out of baseball for 5 years now and the best thing about it is I will never have to throw long toss again. And right now, I want to post this article here on Napalm's Corner so hopefully I can make that true for more players.


Long Toss is a Waste of Time

25-Feb-07: Laine Snook - Big Thick Bar Strength

Laine Snook is mentioned below as a possible candidate for the next COC #4 closer. That's a major claim to be making, but he showed that he is in the top ranks of the world by lifting the Millenium Dumbbell this past weekend.

In case you are not familiar, the Millenium Dumbbell is 228 pounds of fixed weight on a 2 and 3/8 slightly knurled handle. That's some bad ass open hand strength!
