Rich has impacted the game of softball as a player, pitching coach, and mentor to many. Pitchers that have worked with Rich have a great understanding of how to spin various pitches that result in great movement through the zone.

If I had not worked with Rich I never would’ve gotten where I am today. There is nobody better for learning to be a pitcher rather than a thrower.

Coach Balswick is by far one of the best pitching coaches I have ever had because he not only took the time to get to know me as a player but as a person too.

He also took the time to break down this unique pitching style so that I could fully comprehend every piece of it. I feel by him doing this I have become a better pitcher in the sense that I know how to correct myself when I am pitching on my own.

I am forever thankful for Coach Balswick and his patience and faith he had it in me.

“Rich Balswick provided me with the fundamentals I needed to develop into an elite level pitcher.

His spin oriented style of teaching led me to be able to fully understand how I wanted each of my pitches to move while also teaching me the ability to recognize when adjustments are needed to be made.

This made me able to use his coaching to continually coach myself”.

“Coach Balswick is one of the best pitching coaches in the country. His resume of successful pitchers speaks for itself. So many of his pitchers reach success at the highest level.

He is a great teacher and truly understands how to develop his students. When I hear a pitcher is a student of his I make sure I watch her in competition!”
