Dear Fellow Baseball Fan,
There's no greater
satisfaction our Academy can receive than getting a
testimonial like that from a player/student who has
worked hard and is living his dream.
This student has been working
with Coach Mooney for almost eight years and is
chasing his dream of being a Major League Baseball
You can live your dream, too,
with a focus and the great training techniques at
Speaking of training
techniques and doing things differently, this
reminds me of a story told to me recently about a 26
day walking marathon in a rural area of a foreign
country? I think it was Australia. Apparently, there
is a grueling contest for those who dare to compete.
Can you imagine race walking in a desolate area for
26 days? The fastest overall time wins. Heck, I'm
not sure what the prize was, probably bragging
rights. These crazy guys would walk for 6 hours,
sleep 6, and walk 6 every day for 26 days. The
winner never beat the competition by more than 15
minutes in the history of the race. That's it, 15
minutes after 26 days of racing? or should I say
surviving. These techniques, 6 hours on, 6 hours
off, weren't the rules, just the norm? the way
everyone competed. Just a bunch of followers who
thought conventional wisdom on how to compete was
the only and best way. Well, along came a stranger
from the hills, dressed in farmer clothes, overalls
and regular work boots entering to compete. He was
just an ordinary Joe, not a trained athlete. He
didn't have the fancy hiking boots and hi-tech
clothing that the others were wearing. Just plain
old work boots.
Well, this farmer went out and
beat the competition hands down. He didn't beat
everyone by 15 minutes; he beat them by 11 DAYS!
Imagine that...11 Days.
How did he do it? He didn't
follow the other competitors' strategy. He had is
own instincts, he walked until he got tired and then
rested and got up and walked again. Well, he walked
12 hours, slept 3; walked 12 hours slept 3 and so
on. His method was a lot different and obviously
more successful. While the others were sleeping, he
was extending his lead on the competition.
Apparently his method became the norm and the next
year, everyone walked the route they same way and
beat the old records by 11 days or so.
Did he train this way?
Probably not. I doubt he even trained at all. He
just did not allow the "norm" to dictate what he
should do. His different techniques achieved
What's the moral of
this story? "Don't be a follower and do the same
old stuff." If you do what you've always done,
you'll get what you've always gotten. Try new
things, experiment. Don't let what the masses
dictate what you should do.

What Results have we
achieved in our first year?
In our first 7 months we had
20 kids participate on 7 teams that have won state
In our first year of business,
100% of our senior pitchers this past year have gone
on to play college baseball.
One of our pitchers was
honored with an all-tournament team appointment in
the 13 year old Babe Ruth World Series. Five of the
players on that team train at BioForce. Their team
finished 2nd in the country? that's the USA. Is the
Success of our Academy and our Students a Self
Fulfilling Prophecy or a Great Vision?
In January of 2004 I was
quoted saying this about our mission as an
"We have spent a lot of
time this past year traveling the country
searching for the latest in pitchers training
techniques. We want to be able to offer the best
instruction to our clients. Teamed with the
National Pitching Association, Brent Strom and
our unique velocity training, we feel BioForce
Baseball Academy will help Oregon become a
hot-bed for pitchers. We aim to have many
college and professional scouts take notice of
our better prepared athletes." Isn't
it great when a Plan comes together?
Heck, I'm not going to argue
the point, call it what you want. Self-fulfilling
prophecy. A great vision. Hard work. Great
curriculum. Outstanding and dedicated students. I do
know one thing. These great athletes have the 3 C's
and 1 B in common.
These athletes have a
burning desire to be the best.
They train to be the
best and seek out the best information
We at BioForce are
committed to giving you the best
information, instruction and inspiration
available anywhere in the country. We are
passionately committed to our students,
achieving the best results in the area.
These Elite Athletes
work on their game consistently all year
around, whether it's in their garage, gym or
You will find our
instructors teaching our principles
consistently. We don't have dozens of
instructors teaching their own style. Most
academies around the country teach this way,
never the same principles taught
consistently from instructor to instructor.
consistently, the times location and
frequency must be convenient or you'll never
make it happen.
We have maximum
flexibility in our Elite pitching classes.
Come whatever night fits into your busy
schedule. Private training for hitting,
fielding and pitching can be scheduled well
in advance to fit your schedule.
Of course I
have to plug the academy. Seriously, these
Elite athletes have selected our academy to
train with because we deliver results. What
kind or results?
Let me share a story about one
of our newer clients...
Brandon Rupp, a 21 year old
left-handed junior pitcher, now attending the
Division III National Champion George Fox
University, came to us in late June 2004 to help him
with his pitching. He was very frustrated pitching
during this past spring. He had no pop on his
fastball throwing around 80-81 miles per hour. He
had a hard time locating his pitches, no sharp break
to his curveball and was about to hang up his cleats
for the summer. After 6 weeks of training with us,
he gained 6.1 miles per hour on his fastball, now
has a nasty breaking pitch and a dirty changeup. He
went on to become a starter for his summer team
after beginning the summer as a reliever. You should
talk to Brandon now. He is one of the most motivated
athletes I've seen. He feels he has a new lease on
his career. He's even talking about getting drafted
in next year's amateur draft. Brandon recently broke
his personal best velocity marks by throwing a
regular weighted baseball 89.7 miles per hour.
That's almost a 10 mile per hour improvement!!!
Here's what Brandon had to say about his BioForce
"I would fully endorse
BioForce to any parent because in a short period
of time it has honestly changed my baseball
career and my ability to pitch."
George Fox University Student Athlete
Division 3 National Champions 2004
Brandon has worked very hard
and wants to be a professional pitcher. He also says
this about his general observations of our
academy... "BioForce is well run, complete physical
training to improve a pitcher in all phases." Is it
bragging if I state more facts about the results our
athletes have achieved and who is watching us
*Many of the Division 3
National Champion George Fox University pitching
staff is training in our academy at their
*Two of our Pitchers have
received scholarships to Division 1 colleges
within our first year.
*One of our Pitchers has
been drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
*Several local Colleges
and Universities have referred their pitchers to
us for advanced training.
*Three of the 2004 4A
Oregon 1st Team All-State Players train at our
* Our Elite Pitching
students have gained an average of 6.22 miles
per hour in their first 6 weeks.
Heck, just this week, one of
our college pitchers shattered all of his velocity
records. His season just ended (one of our state
championship pitchers) and he is still gaining
velocity even this late in the season. Four of our
students competed in the Regional Little League
Tournament in San Bernardino. They were very close
to traveling to Williamsport. Two of our pitchers
got wins in the regional tournament.
Two of our pitchers threw for
the 4A 2004 Oregon State Champion High School Team.
Combined, they gave up 2 earned runs in 5 games.
One of our pitchers pitched in
the 2006 College World Series and beat the
University of Miami! Let me continue.
One of our 11-year-old
Pitchers struck out 15 batters in a State
Championship game. Think of it. Fifteen batters.
That's 15 outs out of 18 needed for the whole game.
Five of our students played in
the 13-year-old Babe Ruth World Series, placing
second in the country, not county, but the entire
The examples can go on and on.
What's the moral to this
story? To be a champion, you need a focused vision,
the desire to be the best, consistently training,
even in the off season, and find the best
instruction available. That's where we come in. What
