In this episode Gerry talks to Rob Friedman, who runs one of the biggest baseball/pitching instruction accounts on Twitter, @pitchingninja.
This interview starts out aiming to find out what made Rob start the account, and how it was able to rise to such prominence in the world of baseball and social media. Also, find out how that large exposure opened up Rob to some controversy (the famous run-in with KFC from Barstool Sports), and how that ultimately led @Pitchingninja to official MLB certification.
From there, Gerry and Rob discuss some of the most important things youth pitchers and athletes can do to become better pitchers, and the importance of strength training as well as developing proper movement and movement intent at a young age.
To finish up, Gerry and Rob reflect on what has helped them most on their social media journeys, and some easy tips and pointers for coaches and athletes looking to market themselves on social media platforms.
From baseball, pitching and strength training, all the way to social media and business, this episode has it all!
