Legendary Coach Tom House in da House!

Today marks a very special day as we are celebrating the 100th episode of the IMPACT Show. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it with someone who has been a mentor & friend of mine for over 20-years and is a living legend. As a matter of fact, no one man in my career has IMPACTED my training philosophy and methodology more than this man. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Coach Tom House. 

Coach House has been considered by many to be the “father of modern pitching mechanics.” He is the world’s foremost expert in pitching and throwing mechanics and works with Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and many other elite NFL QB’s. In this episode, we talk about life, training, mindset, physical recovery strategies, and what it takes to be the best in the world at what you do.

Folks, it’s episodes like this that make love doing the podcast. I know this episode is going to IMPACT a lot of people positively. Episode #100 is pure magic as it combines a ton of life wisdom and 50+ years of career wisdom. I’m proud to share one of my dear friends and mentors with you without further ado… Coach Tom House!!

Remember, if you love this episode, please share it. Words like this NEED to be shared into our communities to athletes, coaches, and parents. Thanks in advance for sharing the gospel of motivation, inspiration, and IMPACT!

More About Tom House:

Tom pitched at the professional level from 1967 to 1979 for the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Seattle Mariners. He coached from 1980 to 1997 for the Houston Astros, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, and Chiba Lotte Marines (Japan) and Latin America. Tom is an information and instruction coordinator for numerous baseball academies across the United States and Canada on the amateur level. 

He is the founder of The Rod Dedeaux Research and Baseball Institute (RDRBI), The National Pitching Association (NPA), and 3D QB. Tom’s real-life character was featured in the movie “Million Dollar Arm.” That movie was a Hollywood hit about 2 Indian baseball players who came over to the US to train with Tom and get signed by Major League Baseball within one year. Despite never having touched a baseball before, Tom taught them, and both signed professional baseball contracts within 9-months.

Tom now devotes his time to coaching his athletes, doing research, and living life to the fullest.
