"Derek Johnson epitomizes the role of a pitching coach, and he applies that passion to Complete Guide to Pitching."
Tim Corbin
Head Baseball Coach
Vanderbilt University

A great pitching coach not only helps his players improve but also prepares them for success at the next level. Derek Johnson, named college baseball’s National Pitching Coach of the Year in 2004 and National Assistant Coach of the Year in 2010, led Vanderbilt University to the College World Series in 2011, led by eight players who would later be selected in the Major League Baseball draft. More than 25 of Johnson’s past pitchers have been drafted, including David Price, Sonny Gray, Grayson Gravin, and Casey Weathers. Entering his first year as the minor league pitching coordinator for the Chicago Cubs, Johnson continues to carve out a name for himself as one of America’s top pitching coaches.

In The Complete Guide to Pitching: Enhanced Edition, Johnson offers the expertise that has helped him put together several other tremendous pitching staffs—with numerous other pro prospects—in a special book perfect for pitching coaches and dedicated pitchers from the club level to the minor leagues. Compatible with iOS devices – iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch – using the iBooks or Kindle app, its 60 drills are complemented by 226 full-color photos and 50 video clips. Coverage includes technique, conditioning, and psychological aspects of pitching. Johnson also details the seven principles of successful pitchers that help create the mind-set and mentality of a champion.

Featuring drills, exercises, and Johnson’s personal insights as part of his overall plan for pitching, this book shows pitchers how to refine their mechanics, develop new pitches, improve physical conditioning, recognize a hitter’s weaknesses, and shut down a running game. Packed with guidance on nearly every aspect of pitching, The Complete Guide to Pitching: Enhanced Edition makes for the most complete pitching resource available.

Purchase this enhanced e-book with video through Amazon’s Kindle store or the Apple iBookstore. It is also available via Barnes & Noble for use on the NOOK Color or NOOK Tablet.
