About the Author

Tom House is one of the top pitching experts in the world. After playing for the legendary Rod Dedeaux at USC, House pitched in the Major Leagues for the Atlanta Braves from 1967 to 1975, for the Boston Red Sox from 1976 to 1977, and for the Seattle Mariners from 1977 to 1979. He then coached pitchers for the Houston Astros, San Diego Padres, and Texas Rangers. He also has coached in Japan and Latin America.

In addition to his on-field experience, House has made pitching a scientific study. His company, Bio-Kinetics, uses computer-generated, three-dimensional motion analysis to help athletes maximize performance through proper biomechanics. House also holds a PhD in psychology and has been a sport psychology consultant for many professional and amateur baseball players.

House is the author of eight previous books on baseball and has produced eight instructional videos on pitching. He is a member of the Major League Baseball Players' Association, as well as the American College of Sports Medicine and the Association for the Advancement of Applied Sport Psychology. In 1998 House was presented with the American Baseball Coaches Association's lifetime achievement award.

When he's not coaching or analyzing pitchers, House enjoys jogging, weight training, and golf. He and his wife, Marie, live in Del Mar, California.


"""Tom and I worked together when we were with the Texas Rangers. He's always been ahead of his time when it comes to baseball information and instruction. This revised Pitching Edge is a must-read if you want to know what's new with pitching training, techniques, and thinking."""
Rob Nen
Pitcher, San Francisco Giants
"""In person, in videos, and in books, Tom has always tried to give coaches and athletes state-of-the-art methods to prepare for competition. This second edition of The Pitching Edge updates his mental and physical training protocols, providing new drills to help improve the skills of any pitcher who is willing to work."""
