For the duration of the war, the U. And the money was neededon November 19, President Franklin D. Similar War Loan Drives had been conducted during the first World Warbut whereas the propaganda for those campaigns relied largely on posters and newspapers, during World War II a coalition of actors, comedians and singers would help lead the way. The Sixth War Loan Drive faced a few slight difficulties that the earlier five drives had not.
Mike Marshall He said that we could continue to work with his assistant at USF.
Last year, my son developed a problem with a growth plate in his pitching elbow, not serious according to the sports doctor. He did not pitch at all last year but now it is time for baseball once again.
I am picking a couple of guys up at the Tampa airport around 7 PM Friday, so if anyone else needs a ride have them give me a call Steve I look forward to meeting you and soaking up every bit of wisdom you are willing to share.
Does he drive the baseball horizontally forward? How do you fix this? Are your guys coming any closer? If you could comment on some of the assertions it would be great.
This paper reviews the 3 broad categories of resistance-training methods by which throwing velocity is increased. Introduction Throwing velocity is an important performance variable in baseball.
Biomechanically, the overhand throw is a complex motion involving the entire body in a coordinated manner According to Baker 2resistance-training exercises are classified as general, special, or specific depending on their biomechanical characteristics and effects on the neuromuscular system.
General resistance-training exercises increase the overall maximal strength of the muscles. The training effect of these special resistance exercises is to convert general muscular strength to the special quality of power that is relevant to throwing 2.
Specific resistance exercises are designed to follow the concept of specificity by providing a training stimulus that is very similar to actual motion in competition.
The purpose of this portion of the paper is to review the relative effectiveness of general, special, and specific training exercises on increased throwing velocity. Effects of Resistance Training The effects of resistance-training programs on throwing velocity have been reported since the s 7, 18, 32, 52, 63, General Resistance Training In theory, general resistance training aims to improve the contractile capabilities of the muscle.
The results of this study suggested that certain upper-body major muscles evoke strong trunk and shoulder rotation, and thus enhance throwing velocity It should be pointed out that some of the important studies in throwing velocity using isotonic resistance training were published in the form of master or doctoral degree theses 1, 18, 26, 53, 56, Traditionally, isotonic resistance training used in throwing velocity studies among high school baseball players involved upper-body free-weight exercises and shoulder dumbbell exercises.
Popescue 49 also reported an increase of throwing velocity 3. Similar to the above studies for high school baseball players, general isotonic throwing velocity studies using collegiate players also involved traditional upper-body exercises.
Swangard 63 found a significant increase in throwing velocity after an 8-week upper-body resistance exercise program with collegiate pitchers.
In a related study, Potteiger et al. Newton and McEvoy 45 recently reported a significant increase in throwing velocity that resulted from upper-body isotonic resistance training. In a related study, Edwards 16 also found no significant increase in throwing velocity among collegiate baseball pitchers trained with upper-body exercises.
In summary, the majority of studies demonstrated that a significant increase in throwing velocity in high school and collegiate men can result from upper-body isotonic resistance training.
There is a paucity of research regarding the effects of power training using explosive isotonic resistance exercises on throwing velocity. Interestingly, of the 11 upper-body exercises used in this study, 5 were shoulder cable pulley exercises that were performed in a way similar to the throwing motion.
Ballistic resistance training is another example of power training that combines elements of plyometric training and weight resistance training Furthermore, Newton et al. Recently, McEvoy and Newton 36 reported a significant increase in throwing velocity 2.
Ballistic training has been supported by numerous strength coaches who believe that the closer the velocity and movement pattern of the training exercise is to the actual competitive sport skill, the greater the transfer of training gains to the athletic performance 40, Traditional plyometric training is seen by the baseball community as a possible link between strength and speed of movement resulting in an increase of muscular power 10, Although plyometric training is popular among baseball players, very little research has been conducted as to the effects of plyometric training on throwing or running speeds.
Newton and McEvoy 45 conducted the only baseball throwing velocity study using upper-body plyometric training. The authors reported that both training groups significantly increased their strength from training: Isokinetic IKN training is a special resistance exercise that has a positive effect on throwing performance 9, 11, 23, Past IKN studies have reported improvement of athletic performances 19, Archives and past articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and barnweddingvt.com Reviews, essays, books and the arts: the leading international weekly for literary culture.
