We had a fantastic weekend in Scottsdale at Salt River Fields with the staff of The Arizona Diamondbacks and large room full of passionate baseball professionals. A big thanks to Ken, Ryan, Nate, Neil, Andrew and all the rest for making us feel so welcome once again. Your level of professionalism, humility and innovation as an organization continues to amaze me. It was an honor to work together in the development and presentation of this course with one of the most proficient clinicians in performance and advanced biomechanics I've ever met, Allen Gruver, PT, ATC, CSCS, PRC. Since his days as my student intern 14 years ago, Allen has challenged my thinking and helped me analyze the details of the asymmetrical human machine more than just about anyone else.
I was especially grateful for all the first time attendees in this course and the opportunity to present basic PRI principles and also principles of baseball integration to a fresh audience. You are why we developed this material and a big part of why the weekend was so great. Thanks for your interest in PRI and the way we approach the patterned baseball athlete. I hope we can be supportive of your learning process if you choose to take further PRI courses, but hope you feel like you've been given enough material to have success with baseball athletes if you choose not to. It was a great experience developing this material for you guys and rewarding for Allen and I to put something together that has the potential to benefit both the new and the experienced PRI clinician.
