Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Days Per Week Do Athletes Train at PPL?

High School and Middle School athletes can train 1, 2 or 3 times per week. College and Professional athletes can train up to 6 times per week

When Do Programs Start?

We have seasonal training programs that will be announced on our website and social media platforms. We will post start and end dates. If you miss registration, we hold screenings on the last Sunday of each month to allow for new athletes to start mid program

How much Velocity Do Athletes Usually Gain?

It depends. How hard does your athlete work, do you make excuses for them, are they doing too much or too little outside of PPL, are you or someone else in their ear about what you think they should be doing in their delivery, is the athlete physically mature yet... It's multi-factoral, so we don't make any promises or guarantees.

Do You Use Weighted Balls?

Short answer is yes. But we do not use them with everyone and we do not use them year round.

Why consider remote training instead of in-house?

I’ve always been a big believer that you should NEVER sacrifice quality knowledge and experience of the game for the sake of convenience.  Forcing yourself to train in-house with staff limits your perspectives to the region that you live in.  That’s not necessarily fair to yourself or to the coaches that you live proximal to. At GUD Baseball, we solely focus on our remote programming. This means that there’s no secondhand programs based off of players who are coming in-house, and our sole focus is towards each and every one of our dedicated athletes who have seized the opportunity to take their career into their own hands.

What are your qualifications for writing remote programming?

Although I have 11 years of experience as a professional baseball player through 6 affiliated organizations (SF, BAL, TB, CHC, NYY, LAA), I chose to not limit myself solely on my playing experience.  Through years of attaining numerous certifications such as the Functional Movement Screening level 1 certification in addition to my NASM Certificate of Personal Training, Performance Enhancement Specialist and Certified Speed and Agility Specialist, I have been able to confidently navigate our players’ personal development programs to make sure that we cover all the bases to continue moving the needle in their development.Shamelessly promoting myself, I took a chance on working remotely with someone back in 2019 and was able to reshape my arsenal from being a 98-93 stock LHP to living 96-99 mph and reaching a PR of 102 mph in the summer of 2023.  I realized that once I made these changes that this only worked because of two things: A clear plan of execution and a consistent basis of communication between me and my remote coach.  Through this realization, GUD Baseball was established in 2020 and we have helped hundreds of athletes since.(NASM CPT, NASM PES, IYCA CSAS, FMS-1)

What type of results are typical through programming VIA GUD Baseball?

Results have varied based on the duration of time spent with GUD baseball and the current level of play that the athlete is at.  To compare the results of someone at 14 going through major physical changes vs. some of our professional athletes who are chasing 1% aggregated gains over the course of an off-season wouldn’t be a realistic approach.  Virtually everybody who has done our programming has seen some form of progress, whether it be overcoming health hurdles, chasing velocity and metrics, or improving direction and command of their arsenals, we’re proud of every individual who has taken the chance to work with myself personally.

How does remote programming work through GUD?

At GUD, we do everything we can to make this on-ramping process as easy, yet detailed as possible.  Once an agreement is reached and the first month’s payment is made, every player is given the opportunity to run through the Functional Movement Screening exam which would be displayed via BridgeAthletic, the platform we have used to provide all of our athletes with clean and easy-to-follow programming.  Once they have submitted video of themselves performing the movements, I personally grade their movements.  This allows me to not only assign them customized correctives to address movement deficits, but to also further enhance their customized programming experience by knowing what types of lifts we need to focus on and more importantly what types of lifts they may need to refrain from until they’ve addressed these muscular imbalances. In addition, players are invited on our rosters for Onform as well as BridgeAthletic, which is the platform I personally use to perform pitching mechanics feedback for my players.  This allows me to perform voice overs, video in frame, pause as well as provide illustrations in real time that allow us to truly focus on what needs to be addressed in their deliveries.  Players who are programming via GUD are not limited to the amount of videos they can upload and are encouraged to take video as often as possible. This allows us to further close the gap between “feel” vs. “real” when we’re trying to address something specifically in an athlete’s mechanics.
