Testimonials

The Art of Pitching turned my career around from not getting much playing time to now becoming professional, the training with Art helped me create the discipline to accomplish my goals. Working around a group of guys that are all giving their blood sweat and tears to play baseball at a higher level and become a better person is awesome, the environment is hard to beat and there isn’t anywhere else I’ll train going forward as a professional.

Raul Salazar | Professional Athlete

So where do I start with the Art of Pitching! When I first got there I never thought I’d be where I am now, But I was just doubting myself and didn’t have the right mindset. I was throwing mid 80’s, and Art got me to where I wanted to be and better than ever before. He built my velocity and confidence as well. If you were to tell me in October that I’d be throwing 96 by season, I’d say you’re crazy, but now i know we can still keep going up. The work is never done, but seriously It’s a family environment, we all want each other to be successful and push each other to be the best.  I’m proud to say I am an AOP Athlete.

Alex Carillo | Professional Athlete

Since the beginning when I met Art I knew something was different with him. Great guy with great grit and knowledge. To me it’s the right combination of someone to look up to. I came at 83 from the top and then reached 94 at one point and now I’m sidearmer topping at 90. We manifested our success and than my dream came true of signing a pro contract with the Houston Astros all thanks to The Art Of Pitching.
