Former relief pitcher Mike Marshall passed away this past week. He was a remarkable fellow, I had the chance to actually briefly discuss the differences between his perspective about pitcher training and durability versus the current philosophy of limiting pitches. He had a very detailed and specific point of view about how pitchers should train, and that they needed to throw a lot to build up their arms.

He had a PhD in kinesiology, the study of the mechanics of physical motion. He was a fascinating person to speak with, very engaging and friendly. From his website:

I know the injurious flaws in the 'traditional' baseball pitching motion that injure baseball pitchers and how to eliminate all pitching injuries. I also know the mechanical flaws in the 'traditional' baseball pitching motion that decrease release velocity, release consistency and the variety and quality of pitches pitchers can throw and how to correct these mechanical flaws.
