By studying the world’s best pitchers, having been mentored by the game’s best minds, Balswick Fastpitch has developed a unique approach to the dynamics of fastpitch pitching. His approach is to teach a “whip” action rather than the common “forced” action. Clinics and lessons cover beginning to advanced athletes.

Rich Balswick is a credentialed teacher who taught at Los Altos High School for 10 years. During his playing career he was a National Open Division MVP award winner and a 3 time All-American fastpitch pitcher. Rich also participated in 3 Olympic sports festivals, and was a member on 3 National Championship teams.
For the past 21 years, Rich has been a full-time fastpitch pitching instructor. Over the course of that time he has produced well over 100 college pitchers, a national Gatorade player of the year, two state Gatorade players of the year as well as dozens of regional and all-state pitchers. Annually he generally has between 3 to 5 of the top 20 high school pitchers in ERA and strikeouts in the state of California and does so by consistently developing many of the region’s top pitchers.
