In this episode Gerry has the chance to talk to former big league relief pitcher Eric O'Flaherty. Eric spent almost a decade in the big leagues with the Seattle Mariners, Atlanta Braves, Oakland Athletics and New York Mets, posting an incredible 0.98 ERA in 80 innings pitched as the set-up man for the Braves in 2011.
The two get right into an incredibly funny and interesting story, reliving the infamous night that Eric had a pre-game bench press competition with Braves catcher Brian McCann. Chaos (and a nasty cutter) ensued later that night when Eric had to actually pitch unexpectedly.
Then, hear all about pitching, nutrition and strength training from a former big league pitcher and see what he had success with and what he recommends for any coaches and athletes out there who are currently on the journey themselves. All that and more on this episode of Muscles and Management.
