"It is with great pleasure that I inform you of the talents of Coach Greg Short. He is a true leader and pioneer in the field of pitching biomechanics, arm care and health, and velocity improvement. Coach Short has produced many elite level pitchers from his coaching. I have seen many of his players get gains of over 10mph and go from unremarkable pitchers to viable Division 1 recruits. In addition, his program is so effective, it is the basis on which we run our pitching program at Sacred Heart University. His protocols are crucial to how I coach my pitchers!" Wayne Mazzoni, Pitching Coach, Sacred Heart University.
"Thanks to Greg Short and the BioPitch Velocity Development and Arm Care Program I was able to further my career past high school and college, my fastball spiked nearly 6mph from the previous season and I felt stronger than ever and was able to stay healthy!"
"Few pitching instructors are as passionate and professional, fewer care more for the overall development of the pitcher than Greg Short"
"I have known Greg Short for over 15 years now and he is one of the best pitching minds around. I enjoy talking pitching and constantly gain new ideas from him and his staff each and every year. I have seen his work up close and how he is able to get the most out of his pitchers. This past year, we implemented the BioPitch Velocity Program into our off season training. Our pitchers bought into and fell in love with the program. We ended the season ranked 1st in our Conference in Team ERA. I believe a large part of our success this season was due to Coach Short's training program. We will continue to use BioPitch's training methods and innovative ideas for years to come!"
2015 update- "one of our pitchers topped 100mph during only the second week of Coach Short's program, a gain of over 4mph!"
Having played at the collegiate level and a son who has played on the national level, my expectations are extremely high, but Biopitch's Velocity Camp exceeded all of our expectations. In fact, it is probably the best pitching program we have been a part of. The program takes baseline measurements and body analysis using certified physical therapists. Greg and his staff then make slight modifications to the program to ensure that each player maximizes his results within his own capabilities. This program provides individual and group instruction to improve each player. While I was not expecting more than a 2 mph increase in velocity, my son actually saw an increase in velocity of 5 mph from the baseline in just the 6 weeks. Like any other program, you will get you put in, but this program is structured to provide each player with the greatest chance of success. I would recommend it for any serious HS pitcher.
You are doing an amazing job with the pitchers in the Shore area. As we both have experienced pitching injuries while we were playing there is more to pitching that picking up a baseball to start a season. You are providing the players great insight and understanding as well as the proper preparation to become a competitive pitcher. Perhaps things would have been different for us if we had something like what you are providing for these young hopefuls. Keep up the great work and please feel free to stop by any of our games at Baseball U over the summer.
I wanted to thank you for all of the time that you have devoted to my son Ryan. The past couple of years have been very difficult for him with regards to his health of his arm. We tried many different things to get his arm right but nothing worked. On a recommendation from a baseball friend, I then called you and after speaking with you I knew that your ideas were cutting edge. Ryan completely bought into your program and his arm has never been better. He is throwing harder and is pain free!!!!! As a Soph he is 3-0 on varsity with an ERA under 1!!! This would never have been possible without your program. Greg, we cannot thank you enough for all of the extra time that you have spent with us and your guidance. I have been around a lot of incredible baseball people but none of them comes close to your knowledge of pitching.
" With his constant desire for knowledge, Greg Short has developed into one of America's most talented and influencial instructors in the art of pitching a baseball. Greg Short somehow, someway knows more about pitching than even I do. He has taken pitching instruction to a new level of excellence and results. He has very strong analytical skills and he can prevent future problems... and he knows from first hand experience as a prospect that the Cubs were going to sign until injury cut his career short. Simply put, he knows his stuff... even I listen to what he has to say. He has done extensive research and is eager to share his vast knowledge. If I was a young aspiring pitcher or an experienced hurler or a parent looking for a good and knowledgeable instructor for my player-- there is no one else I would trust an arm to than Greg Short."
Lee Mrowicki, Scout/Chicago Cubs - former minor league manager
“I have known Shorty for over 20yrs now and consider him one of the best baseball minds in the game. We have worked and coached together several times over those years and his knowledge of the game and pitching mechanics is exceptional. He brings with him a great amount experience not only as a former player but as a coach. I have and will continue to recommend my players to him for instruction.”
"Greg, as you have discussed baseball is filled with negative people, focusing on negative criticism in a sport where failure is more the norm. It is refreshing to meet someone that is focusing on the positive and reinforcing the science of the game. Giving the young athlete a tool kit to try and allow them to understand why they are doing somethings on the mound is a rare coaching approach. Coachisms like "bend your back...come over the top....and just throw strikes" are the best coaching techniques the majority of folks focus on. You have helped my son and many kids feel better about what it is they are doing on the mound. By breaking down the process you have allowed the pitcher, parent and coach to all be on the same page. Being a pitcher is hard work and there needs to be a lot of preparation. I appreciate the time, energy and effort you have dedicated to helping kids in the Shore be better in all aspects of pitching. Keep up the good work.
"One of the most important aspects of Greg's pitching instruction to his athletes is injury prevention. Like a physician, Greg's first goal is 'Do no harm'. This is apparent from Greg's development of Transitional Programs to help Little Leaguer's adjust from the Little League mound to the High School mound. Unfortunately too many young pitchers jump to the greater mound distance without properly preparing themselves for the increased distance. Greg realizes that good biomechanics, a solid in-season and off-season training plan, and good functional strength are all part of the foundation for a successful pitching career."
