“I had the privilege of meeting Denny at a camp when I was a Junior at Presbyterian. He brought a few girls with him to demonstrate warm ups techniques and explained why they were being done. I and other members of my college team assisted. Before that day, I had not heard of Tincher Pitching but he quickly made me a believer. One of his young students was already throwing in the low 60s and the majority of the girls that were applying Denny’s technique to their motion were gaining speed to their pitch.  I became a sponge and a believer in Fluid Dynamics.

By the time I met Denny, I had a torn Labrum as the result of pitching. I did not want to red shirt so I pitched through the pain. After participating in Denny’s camp, I started applying the Tincher Method to my style and it took a lot of stress off of my injured shoulder. I wished that I had met him sooner in my career.

After graduating, I started teaching pitching and hitting lessons and pursued certification as a Fluid Dynamics Instructor. It has been amazing! Many of the girls that I instruct have seen vast improvement in their pitching since they began Fluid Dynamics. When the drills are practiced and applied, I know it is a more effective and healthier way of pitching.”

Here is what Denny says about Cat:  Cat is one of those people to whom kids respond immediately.  She has a way of making each feel special and finding ways to help each relate to the things we are teaching.  Her patience, passion for the sport, and ability to help each kid find her strengths, made us quickly realize that she would fit into the group well.  She is doing a fabulous job.
