Steve Hague

“I am a former NCAA Division 1 pitcher from the University of Iowa where I had the privilege to play with and against some of the best competition the game has to offer. In my lessons I use science, research, and technology to develop amateur athletes into well rounded hitters and pitchers. Based on my tracking methods, the average increase in pitching velocity for my pitchers and exit velocity for hitting is roughly 5 MPH within a two month time frame. From there we develop other areas of the game such as effective off-speed pitches for pitchers and timing, pitch recognition, and selection for hitters.”
