This is the first part of a two part special with Alan Jaeger. Alan is the founder of Jaeger sports. We’ll dive into his long toss program along with his J-bands and arm care system. That’s next on this episode of the Diamond Dreams Baseball Performance Podcast.

I’d like to know Jaeger’s philosophy on weighted balls for pitchers and what, if any role they have in conditioning. Are they good to train with? Are they good to warm up with before pitching that day? Weight progressions, how many, times, how often etc. thanks
Vince, I’m not sure what Alan’s stance is on weighted balls. Matt Blake touched on weighted balls in episode 7 so you can check that out. I’ll also try to ask a few of our next guests on their opinion as well. Thanks for listening!
Thanks. Keep up the great questions and maybe you could gather the data and post a separate blog about who recommends them, along with how to effectively train with them safely
