“What we often forget is the WHY”
As a baseball dad, it's easy to get caught up in our son's day to day process of playing games, practices, batting average, earned run average and especially playing time. What we often forget is the WHY. Why do our son's play the game? How much enjoyment do they actually receive from playing? What motivates them to get better? What do I really get out of being a baseball dad? These questions are what Paul Reddick really helped me clarify in our discussion yesterday.
He was so effective at helping me really dig deep into the question "what does it mean for my son to play baseball." Is it my son's passion? How can I articulate to myself how important it is me to see him be the best player he can be? How can I in turn, help my son so he can verbalize for himself why he is playing the game? It was a very emotional conversation I had with Paul that really had me dig deep it why I am supporting my son's baseball career and what it means to me.
I have been reading Paul's emails and buying his programs for over four years now and he is the premier source for helping to improve a young baseball player's skill set for all the right reasons.

“Helped me to better understand my
commitment and purpose
as a father to my son”
Thank you for taking the time yesterday to call me regarding the 567 process.
Going thru and answering the questions with you helped me to better understand my commitment and purpose as a father to my son. Baseball is a journey my son and I are now sharing as a vehicle to make my son a better man and to help him be more prepared for the future challenges in his life.
I was touched last evening seeing how surprised my son became when I told him I spoke to you direct earlier in the day. I proceeded to share the 567 conversation we had and am pleased to advise my son now has a new understanding of the motivation behind our father-son commitment to baseball. I cannot thank you enough as I look forward to his progress with this resource as we prepare for fall ball.
P.S. - I also plan to use 567 with my daughter this weekend as we have her in dance and golf and I feel the discussion will have the same positive effect.
“I could have spent years without
bringing out those thoughts”
I really appreciated the conversation and I am very excited to use the insights I received. All that we discussed had a great impact on my perspective. I knew that many of the concepts we discussed were just beneath the surface of what its all about. The 567 methods though simple are extremely powerful in bringing out the depth of what motivates all of us. I could have spent years without bringing out those thoughts and empowering myself, our team, and the
players' parents to influence the journey positively. I am really excited to bring this method to them and to bring out the best in my players. After the conversation I had to call my wife to tell her about how the bridge from my younger self and the players (including my sons) that I coach now had been mapped out so clearly, and I have a newfound confidence that I can reach the heart of not only the player, but the parent who is the first teacher of the player. I am really excited. Thank you again for taking the time to call me today.
Paul opened my eyes and made me
realize that I was able to use baseball
as a much bigger tool to
develop my son.
The other day I had the privilege of having a one on one conversation with Paul to discuss one of his many programs. Paul was able to help me understand what I was personally trying to get out of my son through baseball, and let me tell you, it was not what I expected.
Paul opened my eyes and made me realize that I was able to use baseball as a much bigger tool to develop my son. Baseball was the delivery system for many of life's lessons. Paul's words of wisdom have helped me grow as both a father and a coach.
Paul was also willing to help both my son and I with a few training questions and his answers have worked wonders. Mr. Reddick is far more than a man on the internet, he is a person who cares about your son and his training shows. I can attest to that through our one on one conversation. Thanks again Paul. We hope to talk to you soon. See you on the field.
“It can sometimes be easy
to lose perspective and forget
what’s really important.”
I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to talk to me about your 567 program. As a father, I always want to make sure I’m doing the best I can for my children and have their best interests at heart, whether that’s regarding baseball or anything else. Despite all those good intentions, it can sometimes be easy to lose perspective and forget what’s really important.
Our discussion served as a great reminder to me why I want to help my son with baseball in the first place. It’s not to make him into the next Mike Trout or Bryce Harper. It’s because he loves the game and I want him to pursue all his interests and do so with a passion and a desire that enables him to get the most he can out of life. As you said, baseball is not the destination; it is the vehicle.
Your suggestions to redefine what it means to be successful on the baseball field also had a big impact on me. Success isn’t about the final score or how many hits my son had or how many batters he struck out. It has to do with these three questions:
1. Did you give your best effort? 2. Where you a good/supportive teammate? 3. Did you have a positive/coachable attitude?
If my son can look me in the eye and answer “yes” to all three of those questions, then it was a successful game/practice, no matter what the scoreboard or his personal stat line says. My son and I went out to the field for a quick practice later that evening with those questions as our only barometer as to whether the practice as a success or not. It was one of the best practices we’ve ever had.
Thanks again, Paul. My son and I appreciate it.
“These insights and expertise
are off the charts”
I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me. It was very generous of you. How's this:
I've purchased some of the instructional products (videos) offered on 90MPH Club and have been impressed with their focus and ease of implementation.
Recently, Paul Reddick reached out to me personally to offer some of his time for a 1-on-1 discussion about pitching and baseball in general. He spent 30 minutes with me, and it was great. Paul was engaging and friendly, not to mention extremely helpful. I have two sons, one of whom pitches in college, the other of whom is a pitcher/ middle infielder heading into his senior year of high school.
Paul's insights and expertise are off the charts. What a great guy! I would urge everyone who is serious about helping a young man to become a better ball player and person to look to Paul Reddick as your first source for baseball instruction.
“I can't tell you how much
that meant to me.”
I've been a Paul Reddick VIP member for 2 years. It is without a doubt, the best investment I've made for my son Michael's growth as a player and for my growth has a player's dad. We've learned more from Paul's programs and his Partner Products than from any of the private pitching & hitting lessons he's taken in the past.
When I received an email from Paul with an offer for a free 15 minute phone consultation, I was excited but skeptical. I've had my fair share of "Free" offers in the past and most of them turned out too good to be true but I took a shot and set up the date and time.
Paul called me on that day at 2pm on the dot! We had a terrific conversation. He asked me what my biggest concern with Michael's success as a player was. He then asked me some very specific questions about why my son's success as a player was so important to me. After hearing my answers he told me what to do and more importantly, what NOT to do to help him get through the highs and lows of training and competing. He even offered to spend a few minutes on the phone with Michael to help him along. I can't tell you how much that meant to me.
Paul Reddick is the real deal! I can't wait to meet him in person at his Seminar on August 28th to thank him again! I only wish I had found out about the 90MPH club sooner!
"Upping the measurables"
The other day I had a great conversation with Paul Reddick. The conversation centered on elements of Paul's, 5-6-7 Pitcher. What was really impressive about our chat was Paul's sincere and honest approach to provide information for my son. We were 3000 miles apart but it was as if we were sitting In a coffee shop across the table from one another.
The most valuable aspect of our conversation was what Paul referred to as "upping the measurables". As my sons pitching coach, I'm always researching the best information available. At this juncture of his development it's all about mind set and goal setting. Upping the measurables is simply another tool to my coaches "tool box" and I look forward to adding it to my sons overall development!
Not only are Paul Reddicks programs legitimate, he took the time to call me and converse about pitching.
Paul Reddick is real!
Thanks again Paul.
“I highly recommend this for
any parent, coach or leader
who wants to help kids
on a deeper level”
I have been a member of Paul's 90 mph club for almost 5 years. I am always looking for ways to help my boys. I watched the 5,6,7 video and thought this is the ticket. This is the why behind the what. I made my appointment thinking I would get a call from an assistant.
No I spent 30 -45 minutes on the phone with Paul and it was so helpful. His passion for young men to be their best permeated the whole conversation. I highly recommend this for any parent, coach or leader who wants to help kids on a deeper level than just hitting or throwing. If your goal is to help kids become the young men and women they are supposed to be; this could be the tool for you.
Paul it really was a pleasure talking with you today. If I can ever help you please don't hesitate to ask.
