He is a dad who's son pitched in high school and dreamed of pitching in college. He worked hard and he got people out, but no one at the next level cared. Why? He didn't possess the build to pass the beauty pageant height and weight test and he didn't light up the radar gun. When he checked those boxes, he finally got the opportunity he wanted so badly. At the Florida Baseball Ranch, our ethos… our passion… our mission is to help every player get to a level of play at least one wrung above where you could have gotten if you had never met us. Whether you're a youth player trying to make a travel team, or a professional player trying to ascend to MLB all-star or even Hall of Fame status. We give you the training and plan to increase velocity without pain. Ron R. Wolforth is the founder and CEO of Pitching Central and Ron Wolforth’s Texas Baseball Ranch in Montgomery, Texas.

We discuss his pitching bootcamp that he started in 2003, the importance of having after action reviews to help learn and grow, and whether there is more or less trial and error now with the amount of technology and data at our disposal. He gives us his recommendations on ramping up, tools to stay active and his recommended pitching cycles during the COVID-19 lockdown.
