About Tom House

Tom House has spent most of his life in the game of baseball and in his career he has been a major league player, a pitching coach, a researcher, and a motivational force for many young pitchers today. Considered by many to be the “father of modern pitching mechanics” and the world's leading expert on pitching performance. He is the founder of the National Pitching Association (NPA) as well as 3DQB, renowned for their health and performance research for both baseball and football throwers.

Tom's personal mission is to inform, instruct, and inspire people to improve their performance. He has dedicated his post-professional baseball career to continuing research and the sharing of that information to parents, coaches and athletes so that all can learn to pitch longer, more effectively, and in better health.

Tom has authored or co-authored fifteen books on pitching and athletic preparation topics. He has filmed over twenty-five instructional videos and is frequently involved in leading baseball and biomechanical scientific research.

He has dedicated the last 20 years of his life to performing research about all aspects of throwing and pitching. The list of people Tom has worked with reads like a "who's who" of professionals, Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson, Drew Brees, Tom Brady and the list goes on and on.

Tom pitched at the professional level from 1967 to 1979 for the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Seattle Mariners. He coached from 1980 to 1997 for the Houston Astros, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, and Chiba Lotte Marines (Japan), as well as in Latin America. He directly accesses thousands of players, coaches, and parents per year in clinic settings and travels the world as an international consultant, performance analyst, and sports psychologist. He is also an advisor with the American Sports Medicine Institute, the Titleist Performance Institute, and he has given seminars for the American College of Sports Medicine.
