Brent Strom, Houston Astros pitching coach and former minor league pitching coordinator for the St. Louis Cardinals, teaches proper throwing mechanics during a baseball players and coaches symposium at the Upper Deck Baseball and Softball Academy Sunday afternoon. Strom was as entertaining as he was helpful to area players and coaches who attended the symposium, sharing a wealth of major league knowledge and experience while teaching how to generate better velocity, pitch movement and location, among many other tips.
