These unique tales describe Leo Mazzone's ascent through the minor leagues to the dugout of the Atlanta Braves, where he was the named the best pitching coach in baseball in a player´ download; s poll conducted by Sports Illustrated. Tales From The Mound PDF EBook Though he is widely known for nervously rocking in the dugout during close games, Mazzone's pitching staff in Atlanta either led or was second in the major leagues in earned- PDFrun average in all but one year from 1992-2005.
Mazzone also coached six Cy Young Award winners - more than any other active coach - and the core group of John Smoltz and 2014 Hall of Fame inductees Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine anchored what some consider the greatest pitching staff ever assembled on a major league roster. He developed pitchers at various levels of the Braves organization beginning in 1979, and in 2006 took his talents to the Baltimore Orioles as their new pitching coach. Nothing gave him more satisfaction in Atlanta, however, than the team's extraordinary run of 14 consecutive division championships.
The new edition of Tales from the Mound featuring the Mazzone Method outlines his technique for maximizing pitchers’ performance while maintaining healthy arms. It also reveals his coaching philosophies and provides insight into his relationships with Braves pitchers, including Smoltz, Hall of Famers Maddux and Glavine, the combustible (and controversial) John Rocker, and the underdog 2005 division championship team that beat all the odds. An assortment of stories and memories from the coach´s time on the Braves bench makes Tales from the Mound a must-read for any Braves fan - as well as for baseball fans across the country.
