Nolan Ryan - Master of Pitching Inside.

We all know that great power pitchers at any level always dominate the inside half of the plate. One of the greatest fastball pitchers in the history of Major League Baseball is Nolan Ryan. See Ryan's Lifetime Stats and Bio at

After running this morning, I sat down to eat breakfast and to watch Mike and Mike on ESPN. Mike Greeny of "Mike and Mike"was discussing how Nolan Ryan dominated the inner half of the plate and how much he intimidated Major League Baseball Players. Mike Greeny had the priviledge of having a conversation with Ryan Sanberg at the 2008 Major League All Star Game in Yankee Stadium concerning how Sanberg felt about batting off Ryan.

Sanberg made the comment that basically the only pitch he felt that he could "turn-on" and pull off Nolan Ryan was the hanging curve ball inside. Everything else he was just hoping to "punch" into rightfield. Sanberg said that he was intimidated by Ryan to the degree that if he got a hit or got on base that he would not look at Ryan for fear that he will make Ryan angry.

The "Nolan Ryan Express" is a baseball pitching machine that offers the same great benefits as the "high priced" machines but at a fraction of the cost. Check out the Nolan Ryan Express Baseball and Softball Pitching Machines. You will like what you see.

Have a great Day, Nick.
