    My dd has been to Bill before as well as other pitchers I've coached and I've seen Bill's presentation. It doesn't work for some, plain and simple. I'm glad there are many different instructors for all the different style of pitchers out there is all I'm saying.

    I believe that all of the people mentioned here have had pitchers who have had success. My input on this would be to choose a coach whose personality, coaching style, ideas they teach, location, and price (there may be other factors also) work with you and your daughter and then stick with them. I have been watching my daughter's games for 7 years and most of the top pitchers I have seen seem to stick with one coach throughout their careers. Those that jump around alot always seem to be trying to gain consistency. I may have been extreme but from ages 11-14 I would not let my daughter go to college camps as a pitcher because I did not want anyone but her pitching coach putting things into her head. She could go to camps but as a position player. After 14 she was pitching to get noticed by college coaches so she had to throw at camps but at that point they were less interested in changing mechanics and more interested in looking at prospects.

    There are basically for all intents and purposes two pitching styles. The Finch style is not what Hillhouse teaches. His style is like Cat Osterman's yes, but not Jennie Finch. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with either method, I'm just pointing out Hillhouse does not teach the pitching style Jennie Finch uses.
