"Paul opened my eyes and made me realize that I was able to use baseball as a much bigger tool to develop my son."
The other day I had the privilege of having a one on one conversation with Paul to discuss one of his many programs. Paul was able to help me understand what I was personally trying to get out of my son through baseball, and let me tell you, it was not what I expected.
Paul opened my eyes and made me realize that I was able to use baseball as a much bigger tool to develop my son. Baseball was the delivery system for many of life's lessons. Paul's words of wisdom have helped me grow as both a father and a coach.
Paul was also willing to help both my son and I with a few training questions and his answers have worked wonders. Mr. Reddick is far more than a man on the internet, he is a person who cares about your son and his training shows. I can attest to that through our one on one conversation. Thanks again Paul. We hope to talk to you soon. See you on the field.
“It can sometimes be easy to lose perspective and forget what’s really important.”
I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to talk to me about your 567 program. As a father, I always want to make sure I’m doing the best I can for my children and have their best interests at heart, whether that’s regarding baseball or anything else. Despite all those good intentions, it can sometimes be easy to lose perspective and forget what’s really important. Our discussion served as a great reminder to me why I want to help my son with baseball in the first place. It’s not to make him into the next Mike Trout or Bryce Harper. It’s because he loves the game and I want him to pursue all his interests and do so with a passion and a desire that enables him to get the most he can out of life. As you said, baseball is not the destination; it is the vehicle.
Your suggestions to redefine what it means to be successful on the baseball field also had a big impact on me. Success isn’t about the final score or how many hits my son had or how many batters he struck out. It has to do with these three questions:
1. Did you give your best effort? 2. Where you a good/supportive teammate? 3. Did you have a positive/coachable attitude?
If my son can look me in the eye and answer “yes” to all three of those questions, then it was a successful game/practice, no matter what the scoreboard or his personal stat line says. My son and I went out to the field for a quick practice later that evening with those questions as our only barometer as to whether the practice as a success or not. It was one of the best practices we’ve ever had.
with these three questions:
Thanks again, Paul. My son and I appreciate it.
P.S. - I also plan to use 567 with my daughter this weekend as we have her in dance and golf and I feel the discussion will have the same positive effect.
“These insights and expertise
are off the charts”
I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me. It was very generous of you. How's this:
I've purchased some of the instructional products (videos) offered on 90MPH Club and have been impressed with their focus and ease of implementation.
Recently, Paul Reddick reached out to me personally to offer some of his time for a 1-on-1 discussion about pitching and baseball in general. He spent 30 minutes with me, and it was great. Paul was engaging and friendly, not to mention extremely helpful. I have two sons, one of whom pitches in college, the other of whom is a pitcher/middle infielder heading into his senior year of high school.
Paul's insights and expertise are off the charts. What a great guy! I would urge everyone who is serious about helping a young man to become a better ball player and person to look to Paul Reddick as your first source for baseball instruction.
