BIG League Dreams Fulfilled
The “Switch Pitcher” (Pat Venditte) and Tony Zych each make their MLB Debuts in 2015
-October, 2015-Pat Venditte and Tony Zych each added the Velocity Plus Arm Care program to their off-season workout regimens this past year and only months later are reaping the benefits of the additional hard work. The switch pitching Venditte, an eight year minor leaguer, made his debut on June 5th, 2015. While Zych, who has spent the past five seasons in minor league baseball, got the call-up in September and threw his first Big League pitch on September 4th, 2015. Congratulations to both of these guys!
SCOTT CARROLL utilizes the VELOCITY PLUS PROGRAM during rehab to make his White Sox MLB Debut
CSN Chicago -June, 2014-While rehabbing from Tommy John surgery in his hometown of Liberty, Mo., two winters ago, Carroll stumbled upon an “HBO Real Sports” special on then-Seattle Mariners reliever Steve Delabar. Like Carroll, Delabar was a career minor leaguer coming off elbow surgery — though Delabar’s injury was far more severe than Carroll’s, which required a Tommy John procedure.
Using a weighted ball throwing program, Delabar saw his fastball velocity spike to 97 miles per hour. He quickly went from out of baseball to rocketing through the Mariners’ farm system and making his major league debut in September of 2011 at the age of 27. He wound up making the American League All-Star team in 2013, too.
“I thought, why not give it a chance,” Carroll said.
