PROBATTER SPORTS LAUNCHES “AND THAT’S THE GAME” VIDEO PODCAST
Division I Coach and Recruiter Wayne “Coach Mazz” Mazzoni
Delves Deep into How to Develop a Five-Tool Player
Milford, CT (October 5, 2023) – ProBatter Sports (“ProBatter”) has announced the launch of their podcast “And That’s the Game,” hosted by noted Division I coach Wayne “Coach Mazz” Mazzoni. For more than 20 years, ProBatter has served as the industry leader in the design and manufacturing of technologically advanced pitching machines used for baseball, softball and cricket training.
The show will include interviews with prominent college coaches, sports medicine experts and well-known sports figures. New episodes will be released monthly in both video and audio formats.
Released this week, the premiere episode of the ProBatter video podcast features an interview with Dr. Josh Heenan, founder and President of Advanced Therapy and Performance. One of the leading figures in the world of sports performance, Dr. Heenan is the creator of the 90MPH Formula, an innovative training program utilizing physics and evidence-based criteria that has helped thousands throw 90 mph or greater. The formula provides checks and balances to help reduce the incidence of traumatic injury, especially UCL tears in pitchers.
As the host of “And That’s the Game,” Wayne Mazzoni brings a wealth of high-level experience, having coached at Fairfield University, Post University, College of the Holy Cross and, most recently, Sacred Heart University. In addition to serving as a pitching coach, Mazzoni works with many pitchers in private instruction, camps and clinics, and online via his website.
“I’m excited to reach as many young, enthusiastic athletes, who love the game of baseball as much as I do,” said host Wayne Mazzoni. “Almost everything I know about baseball and youth sports I learned from someone else either formally or informally. This podcast is a chance to pass on that knowledge.”
Adam Battersby, President of ProBatter Sports, added “Our collaboration with Coach Mazz is an ideal match for young ballplayers, and their parents and coaches. With his impressive background as one of the top coaches in the country and ProBatter Sports’ well-earned reputation for creating innovative training tools, we make a great team for those who strive to improve their game.”
Topics for discussion on the podcast will range from college recruitment, the latest in high-tech training tools, how to handle injuries and tips on how to improve technique. Most importantly, interviews will impart to listeners the essential need to build a team-player attitude.
The video version of the podcast, “And That’s The Game,” can be found on YouTube. It is also available on all major podcast platforms in audio-only format.
