Entering his first season with the Lasell College Baseball
program Coach Kolodzinski is no stranger to pitching. He has
worked & rehabbed with collegiate and professional baseball
pitchers. Years of continuing education, coaching and
conducting pitching lessons have afforded him an impressive resume,
but it's his philosophy's on pitching and life that is more
Coach Kolodzinski’s philosophies are grounded in the importance of conditioning and managing the mental aspect of the game.
“It all starts with being healthy, and in good physical
condition. Coaches need to help athletes understand the
importance of proper strength and conditioning. Getting into
shape and staying fit keeps you in the game and puts you ahead of
your competition. Games are often won or lost in the weight
“The way you handle adversity plays a big part in your performance. Pitchers are at their best when they can make themselves comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. The difference between playing in Pawtucket or Boston is the mental aspect of the game."
“Pitchers need to recognize that they are pitching to a situation. The most important pitch you throw is the next pitch. Learning to stay in the moment, not letting an error, a bad pitch, or a blown call by the umpire effect the next pitch you throw. In baseball you have to maintain your composure, just like you have to do in life.”
Coach Kolodzinski lives in Walpole, MA with his wife Janet.
