Lance Brown - Profile

Title: Pitching Coach

Success can only follow adding a legendary coach to a team’s staff. No, this time we are not talking about AirHogs’ head coach Pete Incaviglia.

The Grand Prairie AirHogs added college baseball coaching legend Lance Brown to the staff this week to work with the ‘Hogs pitching staff.

Brown made his mark on the colligate world at TCU, finishing his 17 year tenure at the helm of the Horned Frog team with the most wins of any coach in TCU history with a record of 517-471. He is one of only two men to earn Southwest Conference player of the year for his pitching performance as a player at TCU, then Southwest Conference Coach of the year in 1994 when he lead the Frogs to a conference title.

Brown continued his career at Texas Tech, serving as the pitching coach in Lubbock. After joining the staff in 2005, he lowered the team’s ERA by a full run in less than a season’s work.

Why will Brown be effective on this level of ball? He said nothing is different in coaching pitching between high school and this level, it’s all about adjusting the pitchers approach.

And his players should be responsive to his coaching styles. Brown said the reason he coaches is to see his players achieve the goals they set for themselves and he feels the most successful when they reach those goals.
