Perry Husband is the author of the Hitting Is A Guess video series and book, so it begs the question, "What is a hitting guy doing writing a pitching book?" Perry's more than 10 years of research in the art of timing in the field of hitting has lead to some amazing discoveries in what hitters can do and more importantly, what they cannot do. Perry played at Antelope Valley Junior College where he led all of California in hitting and set a national hit streak record of 32 games. At CSU Northridge, he was co-captain of the NCAA Division II champs in 1984 and was named MVP of the College World Series. After two years in the pro ranks at the minor league level with the Minnesota Twins organization, he pursued a career as a PGA teaching apprentice in Southern California. After teaching golf for four years, Perry turned back to his sport of origin and opened and operated The Baseball Academy for the better part of 17 years. He coached American Legion baseball for four years and was the hitting coach for Antelope Valley College for six seasons. While conducting research that his students referred to as lessons, there were many ground breaking discoveries that came to the surface, but the discovery of Effective Velocity has sparked various patents and three book titles so far. Perry was inducted into the Antelope Valley College Sports Hall Of Fame as well as the CSU Northridge Sports Hall Of Fame. He was a speaker at the ABCA coaches convention in 2004 and teaches and speaks at clinics nationwide. He lives in Southern California with his two young Jedis Shea and Quinn, the biggest inspirations of all.
Like most instructors and teachers, his philosophies are derived from a long list of very special people, without any one of whom, would not have accomplished the feat of bringing the science of Effective Velocity to light. This list includes people from all walks of life from coaches and teachers to childhood mentors and most assuredly, each and every student over the years.
