Join Coach Matty Maher and Former Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twin FRANK RODRIGUEZ as he discusses basic pitching mechanics. This video focuses on the upper half of the body and will give you some key tips on getting the MOST out of your pitches.
The Boston Red Sox drafted Frank Rodriguez out of high school with their 2nd round pick in the 1990 amateur draft, but he elected to go to junior college in 1991. Rodriguez led the JUCO ranks in home runs (26) and pitching strikeouts (139), and was named MVP of the Junior College World Series, when Howard College beat Manatee Community College in the title game.
In 1995, Rodriguez got the call up to the majors, and spent eight years playing pro ball with the Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, Seattle Mariners, and the Cincinnati Reds.
