About the Author:

Ken Shuey has a master's degree in electrical engineering coupled with thirty-three years of practical experience in the design and development of electronic equipment. He holds twenty-nine patents on a variety of subjects related to his work experience with aircraft electrical systems and communications. Ken grew up playing youth baseball in Missouri and played four years of collegiate baseball at the University of Missouri at Rolla, joining the UMR team for the inaugural season that baseball was offered as a varsity sport. He played several years of post-collegiate baseball in the mid-Ohio area. Ken is the president of the North Wake County Baseball Association, a non-profit organization that provides baseball opportunities for players in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina. He is the co-founder of the Greater Raleigh Fall Baseball League (GRFBL), recognized as one of the premier competitive fall baseball programs in the country. Ken is the father of Paul Shuey, setup man for the Cleveland Indians and one of the hardest throwers in the major leagues. Paul's fastball has been clocked as high as 100 MPH and his split finger fastball consistently registers 90-94, one of the hardest in the major leagues. Ken has been providing throwing instruction for dedicated NWCBA players for many years. It is the combined experience of working with Paul and with a variety of NWCBA players, coupled with a strong engineering background, that has allowed a refined set of powerful throwing techniques to be developed.
