Matt Blake is the Owner and Director of Elite Pitching Development, which he founded in 2009. In conjunction with his company, Matt is the Pitching Coordinator for Cressey Performance’s Elite Baseball Development Program. This collaboration allows Matt and Eric to manage the off-season throwing programs for 100+ professional, college and high school players.Matt’s throwing philosophy is largely drawn from his continuing education into functional anatomy and available research on the overhead throwing population. With a heavy emphasis on video analysis and an integration of concepts from both the Physical Therapy and Strength and Conditioning communities, Matt has been able to aid players’ understanding for how to create high levels of velocity, properly dissipate the stress in an overhead throw and repeat deliveries.
Matt is also currently the Pitching Coach at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, Pitching Coordinator for the New England Ruffnecks, and maintains a role as an Associate Scout for the New York Yankees in the Northeast region.
