How do I build up my arm strength 4 baseball besides pushups and lifting weights? I am 15 and have the weakest arm on my baseball team and i need 2 build it up. 1.either throw a weighted ball, or cut a small slit in a tennis ball and fill it with pennies, and throw that before the game. This was a trick i used when i played legion ball and it can add 3-5 mph on your throws. 2. That and also you can do rotator cuff lifting. 5 or 10 lb weight(whichever isn't too heavy) and hold it with your arm just hanging to your side, then lift your arm straight up, in front of you, to the side of you and behind you. Yes, it is called flexibility and mechanics. Now before you look away from this let me explain. I can bet good money that you are not as flexible as a gymnast so until you are you have not done your job on making yourself flexible. Now for mechanics, you have to video tape your throwing mechanics and learn where you are making errors in the throwing motion. Your body should be delivering the ball, not your arm. You can do the Jaeger Band workout routine until the cows come home, but if you do not have good throwing mechanics then nothing is going to change. Video tape and learn and improve on one thing at a time and you will see results. Take a look at how Major League ballplayers field whatever position is it you play and take the quality basics of their mechanics and apply it to how you throw the baseball.

Given my aversion to 1992 Donruss flagship, this was a nice alternative. I bought a fair amount of it. Minuses: The loud border kind of takes over the whole card. Although a lot of the photos are interesting, many just make the player look awkward. Plusses: Sometimes you got a quote from the player featured. Sometimes the quote was pretty good. Minuses: Not a lot going on with the back. Plusses: While most companies were expanding into the premium market, Donruss also ventured into the kids market (Topps would do this in the same year with "Topps Kids"). It was a nice idea for the time. Included in this set were mascots and ballpark photos. Honestly, these should be in every set. Minuses: I almost didn't include Triple Play in this review and I might not do so in future posts, but this one seemed right because it was a regular purchase for me.
Overall, though, it feels a little bit insert-ish. After a year or two, the point of the set seemed to be lost. Plusses: Ultra, in its second year as a premium set, really flipped things around after its debut set, going for a Stadium Club-esque look. Lots of ballplayers in action with this set. I like the Ultra logo over the baseball. Minuses: Nobody knew it yet, but this set would be confused constantly with 1993 Ultra. This was the beginning of the Sameness of Ultra, which would last the entire decade. Unfortunately '92 Ultra doesn't include some of the later creative photos that we saw in the brand. Plusses: The "Tron"-looking back is interesting, I'll say that. Minuses: I don't know what's going on here. Why is the head shot of the player so low? Why is there so much wasted space at the top? The vital information is tricky to read. Very little about this makes sense except for the large card number.
Plusses: Full-bleed card sets were all the rage at this time so Ultra capitalized on that and Fleer had to feel it was at least close to the same footing with Topps and Upper Deck with this set. The Ultra brand is a well-known aspect of '90s card collecting and it really started here. Minuses: You know me and full-bleed sets: either make your photos really interesting or get a design on that thing. 1992 Ultra did neither. Plusses: I like it a bunch. Now that Upper Deck had completed its trip-around-the-bases design (which lasted from 1989-91), it left the border alone, except for the speeding baseball. I appreciate the simple treatment and don't mind the shadow box at all. Love the word mark logo in the corner. Upper Deck features its usual interesting photos and I think they benefit from the simplistic design. Minuses: I guess there's no position designation. Plusses: One of the few cases where turning your card over is a must-do. Minuses: The orientation of Upper Deck card backs can get tricky. Sideways stats or sideways card number and photo? As usual, limited stats. Plusses: the '89 and '91 UD sets will never be my favorites. I think 1990 UD is criminally underrated and I'll place 1992 UD in the same category. It just doesn't get the credit it deserves and it was setting collectors up for the best two-year run in Upper Deck history. I have virtually no trouble distinguishing 1992 UD from other early UD releases and I can't say that for those other early UD sets. You could land a Ted Williams autographed card if you were really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really lucky. Good gosh that took a long time.
One of my favorite baseball announcers just announced his retirement. Jerry Howarth is stepping down as the radio voice of the Toronto Blue Jays after 36 years, citing health reasons. A major league baseball season is a grind. Especially for someone in Toronto because you have to go through customs every time you go in and out of Canada. I’ve known Jerry since my first year broadcasting baseball, 1988. I was one of the announcers for Toronto’s Triple-A affiliate, Syracuse. Midseason I got the chance to fill in one game for the Blue Jays, sitting alongside their iconic (booming) lead voice, Tom Cheek and number two play-by-play man, Jerry Howarth. Needless to say I was nervous. Both made me feel so comfortable and Jerry in particular, took me under his wing. From that day forward Jerry became one of my mentors. And I can't thank him enough. Even when I got to the big leagues I would send Jerry tapes and he would critique them. He was always very meticulous and descriptive and would really hold my feet to the fire.
