The Tincher Method was designed by Denny Tincher, father and pitching instructor for 2008 College Player of the Year, Angela Tincher, who stunned the world in 2008 with a no-hitter against the U.S. Olympic Team. Together, they developed some unique approaches to softball pitching, and Denny has found these to be quite successful with other pitchers throughout the east. Denny, a graduate of Marshall University with a Master’s degree in communications, particularly enjoys the challenge of working with experienced pitchers who have reached a plateau and cannot seem to get to the next level.
In a sport where dominating pitchers tend to be well over 6-feet in height, people often ask us how a pitcher like Angela, just 5’7″, could pitch at speeds around 68-mph, achieve so much movement on the ball, and establish herself among the top pitchers in the college softball record books. He calls it the Tincher Maximum Energy Transfer System, a technique that transfers the body’s energy for the ultimate advantage on the mound. It allows pitchers of average height to utilize their natural strengths, specific to the female body, in ways they might not have considered previously. And, yes, for taller pitchers who feel there is “power left in their body that they just can’t unleash”, they are always surprised at how easy it is to make small changes that bring exciting results while pitching more comfortably.
The goal is to help your pitcher discover ways to pitch much more smoothly, lengthen the stride, engage the legs more fully, and enjoy safe and healthy pitching mechanics that lead to more power, greater endurance, and more dramatic movement pitches. Can the Tincher Maximum Energy Transfer System work for you?
"His pitchers have been recruited to major conference schools in America from the Pac 12 to the SEC. In the past 16 months Tincher has seen 71 of his pitchers accept Division 1 college offers, and last year’s National Gatorade High School Player of the Year was one of his students from South Carolina who averaged 18 strikeouts per game. Denny is the innovator who designed the Fluid Dynamics approach to pitching, which is completely focused on biomechanical advantages unique to the female body. The emphasis is on utilizing the female body in the way it was designed so that it can build energy from the ground upward and allow the free flow of energy from the legs to the fingertips. If your pitcher feels like she has the potential to get more from her body, struggles with breaking pitches, or just has not improved dramatically in the last few years, this may be just what she needs to get past that plateau.
