Reed Hayes is a Johnson City native and former standout at Science Hill High School. After spending the 2017 season with the Vanderbilt Commodores, Reed was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2017 MLB Draft. Reed has seen his fastball climb to 100mph in the past few years.
At RBI this February, before he leaves for spring training, he will be doing a brief and comprehensive presentation on arm strength and health.
He will be presenting his theory and belief on how to develop arm strength and how he consistently keeps his pitching arm healthy and ready to perform at its highest level. He will also discuss a pitcher's approach in games, in-season routines and armcare to help players preparing for their upcoming spring seasons. Reed's presentation will include demonstrations and a bullpen.
While Reed's presentation will be mostly steered towards high school pitchers, players, parents and coaches of all ages are welcome to attend. Even position players who desire to create more arm strength could find value and information to apply to their own throwing programs.
This event is free, and will be held at RBI Tri-Cities on Sunday from 5-6pm.
