The promotional information on your Windmill is misleading and not
completely truthful. Let me explain. Your web site and literature talk a lot
about the benefits of the Windmill for softball but it is almost void of any
comment on baseball. You may be missing the boat.
I found your web site a year or so ago when my college age pitcher, son
(after a year as a redshirt) was near the end of his freshman year and not
playing at all. His velocity and location was not acceptable to the coach.
Prior to redshirting he had been away from baseball for a couple of years,
and even though he was working hard and had a good breaking ball, it
couldn�t make up for lack of speed and imperfect control.
He got your Windmill, and with only a few exceptions, he has used it
religiously for year-and-a-half or more. He has continued to improve and
finally got a chance to start about halfway through this past season.
To make a long story short, he started every week and from then on he has
regained control of his breaking ball, can locate his fastball, is still
improving his change-up and ended up with double digit starts, a lot of
innings, a strikeout-to-walk ratio better than 4:1 and a very good sophomore
year. He is throwing it faster that he ever has in his life. His velocity is
up an average of 4 mph and his maximum speed is up 6 mph over the previous
Additionally, he has had no injury or sore arm problems. When the team
trainers did a strength test on all the players, they found to their
surprise, that his left and right arm were exactly the same strength. That
appears to be the balance you talk about.
He acknowledges the Windmill as a significant assistance in his progress but
doesn't not feel he has yet received the maximum benefits of its use, he is
continuing with it as a part of his daily training regiment.
So you see, your Windmill is not just for girl�s softball. I�m sure
it is working for a 20+ year old playing major college baseball.
As you know I got one for myself, I think it will help by golf game.
