Perry Husband

Baseball Science

Perry Husband is a pioneer in the world of Baseball Science. He introduced many modern hitting metrics to baseball, including Exit Velocity and Launch Angle. Working with Jay Bell, he used metrics to diagnose and improve performance in both Exit Velocity and Launch Angle in one session with Jay’s swing. Jay had an increase of 10 MPH in Exit Velocity and improved his Launch Angle to the equivalent of today’s ‘Barrel’, a ball hit at 100 MPH at a Launch Angle of 25-30 degrees. He also improved his contact consistency by almost 50%.

Perry also introduced ‘Tubing’ to the baseball world, inventing the original J Bands, sold by Alan Jaeger. The Resistance Belt concept was also a surgical tubing product introduced in the Hitting Is A Guess series for training hitters. Plyometrics in hitting training was the workout prescribed in that same video series from 2001. The underload/overload concept in hitting training was designed and introduced by Perry in the Hitting Is A Guess video, promoting explosiveness, balance and proven bat speed and Exit Velocity increases.

Through the groundbreaking discovery of Effective Velocity, there were countless pitching breakthroughs, including Ev Pitch Tunnels, Location Adjusted Speed (True Reactionary Speed) and many, many other Deception Metrics.

Published Works

Perry Husband is the Author of the Downright Filthy Pitching Series, including 4 books, Downright Filthy Pitching Books 1, 2, 3 & Getting Filthy – Implementing Effective Velocity.

This cutting edge series uncovers the Patented science of Effective Velocity, which has been used by MLB coaches, pitchers and hitters for more than.

The Foreword is by Dr. Tom House, who helped bring the science to light introducing Ev to both Japan and Korea. Ev has also been adopted by hundreds of university coaches/players in both softball and baseball, including many NCAA champions

Perry also created the Hitting Is A Guess video series that introduced the hitting world to Exit Velocity and Launch Angle, as mentioned.

Perry also authored the Time Training Hitting Programs that helped Carlos Pena lead the American League in homeruns in 2009. Time Training Level 1 is a book and online video course that focuses on mechanical efficiency. Time Training Level 2 introduced the world to Pitch Recognition and Timing, as never understood before. Time Training Level 3 is the most advanced game planning mindsets to date. These are the same mindsets that helped Carlos Pena lead the MLB in Exit Velocity. These same advanced mindsets helped the Back to Back National Champions in softball, University of Oklahoma and UCLA softball programs to become two of the most potent offenses in the game this past season.

Playing History

As a collegiate player, Perry was the MVP of the Division II College World Series in 1984 where he captained the NCAA Champion Cal State University Northridge Matadors. Perry tied the record for most hits in the Division II College World Series with an 8 for 11 days. At the Junior College level, he led California JCs in hitting and set a record with a 32 game hitting streak.

Perry is an inductee into the CSUN Hall of Fame as well as the Antelope Valley College Hall of Fame and the Lancaster JetHawks Hall of Fame, minor league affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. Perry was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 16th round and played two years in the minor league system, setting records for double-plays with Jay Bell, 17 year MLB vet, and 2-time All-Star.

Items discussed:

Effective velocity, what it is and How it can be used at all levels.

Hitting is a guess.

Hitting is timing, The single most important element of hitting is timing and it is the least understood.

Baseball training (and softball) for hitters is about 3 things:

  • Swing Efficiency – Designing your ‘A’ Swing – Level 1 Time Training
  • Pitch Recognition & Timing Training – learning to train the mind/body together to better time pitches – Level 2 Time Training
  • Advanced Game Strategy – Level 3 Advanced Time Training
  • The Home Run explosion – Super Low Ev Efficiency on the pitcher’s part
  • Low Hanging Fastballs – Blurring Pitches
  • Any MLB Team can be among the leaders in pitching overnight with the right approach – Astros Worst to 1st w/Brent – Brewers Worst to 1st or close overnight w/Derek Johnson
  • The myth that groundballs are bad
  • Explosion of Ev in NCAA softball
