Breathing Baseball with Alan Jaeger

Alan Jaeger founded Jaeger Sports on the principle that athletes need to develop both their physical and mental skills in order to be successful in game situations. You have probably seen his J-Bands used on many baseball fields from youth athletes to the MLB. As a result of several years of coaching and and personal study was Alan Jaeger’s Mental Training Book, Getting Focused, Staying Focused, and the DVD, Thrive On Throwing, Jaeger Sports’ signature Arm Health, Strength and Conditioning Throwing Program. Along with Alan Jaeger’s passion for Yoga, this Book and DVD serve as a driving force behind all of Jaeger Sports’ training programs.

Alan’s playing experience includes Los Angeles Pierce Junior College (1984-1985), California State University, at Northridge and the Wichita Bronco’s of the Jayhawk League (1986). His college coaching experience includes four years (1990-1993) at Los Angeles Mission Junior College/College of the Canyons and seven years as an assistant coach/consultant for the Chatham A’s of the prestigious Cape Cod League.

Since 1991 Alan Jaeger, as a personal trainer and consultant, has worked with over 200 professional players, including 2002 Cy Young Award Winner Barry Zito, and All-Stars Dan Haren and Andrew Bailey. Alan, has also consulted with many schools and organizations including the Texas Rangers Baseball Club and the 2004 National Champion Cal State University, Fullerton baseball team.

With a teachers training background in Yoga and practitioner of such Far Eastern Arts as Zen and Taoism, Alan’s intention is to help athletes merge the “mechanics” of the Western athlete with the “insight” of the Far Eastern mind — to position athletes to best realize their potential on and off the playing field.

In this episode, Alan Jaeger and Sammy discuss the importance of arm care & arm strength, the importance of the breathe, the proper way to get started with long toss, defining the mental game & finding your process (this piece is priceless).
