    As a varsity baseball coach, you always want to know who your pitchers are working with outside of your time. We never have to worry about Eric Minshall. Our pitchers, thrive while under his tutelage and he does a tremendous job communicating with me on what is happening with each and every one of my guys! Coaching 14 years in high school baseball, that is rare for a trainer to do!

  • Greg Breeden

    Coach Minshall says no two pitchers are the same and that’s how he teaches. He uses specific drills for each individuals needs. There’s no cookie cutter coaching at Cincinnati Throwing Club

  • Blaise Huiet

    Great with communicating with my son and I. Great instruction on correcting throwing techniques cares very much about my son's welfare,main objective is for him to throw properly so he does not injure himself throwing. Eric cares deeply about their success and takes great care to make sure they are healthy.

    Eric Minshall has been Aidan’s pitching coach for 3 years now. He is an experienced and knowledgeable pitching coach whose goal is to improve the athlete’s performance by intertwining mobility , strength with proper body mechanics . He has educated Aidan and told him that once these things all work together properly the velocity will take care of itself . He also gives Aidan pointers on how to handle the game mentally as well as physically. Aidan’s progress is proof. We highly recommend him as a pitching coach and we feel fortunate that our son has the opportunity to continue to work with him .

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We have our new clients do a physical assessment first. This enables us to see how their body moves and if they have any restrictions in movement that are not allowing them to function fully.  We then do a slow motion video capture of their throwing mechanics to further identify any inefficiencies. Once we have completed and reviewed with our clients we come up with a plan to fix the issues and move the athlete forward. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a professional pitching coach who has studied bio mechanics, worked with the Drivleine methods, Texas Baseball Ranch teachings as well as total arm care techniques. I have coached baseball for over 25 years and have coached at every level.

What types of students have you worked with?

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Instructors who sit on a bucket and tell you you did great when you throw strikes and give you negative feedback when you don't are not worth your time or money.   You need someone with a kinetics based background who truly knows what the next levels look like.
