Andy Powers, Owner & Coach

The Texas Pitching Institute was founded by Andy Powers – renowned around the country as an author, speaker, trusted coaching advisor, and successful developer of pitchers. Clients from across North America – have relied on his expertise as a consultant and coach to help them grow and prosper.

Using his real world experience, where results rule and practice time can’t be wasted on theory, he wanted to help pitchers and coaches put an end to wasting their time and money on strategies that don’t work and rescue them from the frustration.

His unique “Customized” approach integrates the latest training strategies, velocity generation, cutting edge arm care, pitcher specific strength and conditioning, pitch development, mental performance enhancement and more!

A former Division I pitcher himself, and later a Division I Pitching Coach and High School Head Coach, Andy has had the opportunity to work with and coach former MLB First Round Draft Picks, College and High School Louisville Slugger All-Americans, Current Professional Pitchers, All-State Pitchers, as well as currently being an Associate Scout for the Kansas City Royals.
