The #1 job of coaches today (and the demystifying truth about how to influence the players of this generation who, unlike previous generations have grown up with and routinely use tools like smartphones that put the world at their fingertips) [Chapter 3]
You will learn about the incredible new science of “Biotensegrity” and how it helps smaller or weaker players hit or throw a ball harder than other more physically developed ones (almost no one, not even top professional coaches, know about this yet) [Page 89]
The #1 biggest reason for the epidemic of arm injuries in baseball (Arm injuries have increased over 250% in the past 10 years during a time where player participation in Baseball has dropped 27%. UCL injuries have risen to what some would call epidemic proportions at 193% over a 10-year period.) [Chapter 9 — Page 147]
You will learn about the failures of current biomechanics research and the 300 year old unproven theory they use to understand human movement! (The most interesting part of this failure is that the research that can help “fill in the blanks” is already there and has been for quite some time) [Page 83]
A brand new framework for creating a training environment that systematically transfers movements that will show up at game time [Chapter 7]
Weighted balls: useful tools or an injury waiting to happen? (The answer will probably surprise you… More often than not, these are applied incorrectly… Discover the unique way we’ve incorporated weighted balls to our protocols and what it’s doing for our players) [Chapter 10]
The truth about mobility training and why injuries in baseball are at an all-time high… one thing missing from player development today that has nothing to do with the players [Page 251]
THE APPLICATION OF DATA AND TECHNOLOGY IN BASEBALL
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING!
"108 has changed the way I assess and coach baseball. I’ve learned more in the last year, than I have in my previous 20 years in the game. That is a direct result of my relationship with Bleecker and his material."
HEAD COACH - MARYLAND
"I have always admired the guys at 108 Performance for their never ending desire to learn and share. They are always looking for ways to make baseball players better. Their understanding of how the human body works is excellent and constantly evolving. "
SPORTS MEDICINE - ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
“I just want the best information. I can say with full confidence that Eugene and his 108 team are the best educational operation I’ve come across. Buy the book, take the courses, dive into it all. I can’t say enough. 108 has been a game-changer for my career.”
HITTING COACH - COLORADO ROCKIES
"Eugene and the guys over at 108 continue to be the industry leader in education and innovation. They do a tremendous job breaking down athletes using science and biomechanics, but they also create the most effective solutions for the rest of the industry to learn how to correct those movement flaws"
