Podcast: Merging Data with Application with Iowa’s Pitching Coach Lund

My guest today is Robin Lund, pitching coach at the University of Iowa.  Lund is in his fifth season as an assistant coach at Iowa, including having previously worked with the hitters and outfielders during his first season. Lund earned his Bachelor’s Degree in education from Whitworth College and his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science from Eastern Washington. He earned his PhD in Exercise Physiology at the University of Idaho.

This past spring, Coach Lund oversaw an Iowa pitching staff that was among the nation’s best, as it ranked second nationally in hits allowed per nine innings (6.88), third in strikeouts per nine innings (11.2), fourth in ERA (3.72) and 11th in WHIP (1.29). The staff led the Big Ten in virtually every pitching category during the season and it racked up a program record 609 strikeouts, shattering the previous record of 499 set in 2018.

Today, some of the topics we’ll be discussing will be:

    • Adjusting movement strategies with his pitchers
    • The biggest game changers in getting swings and misses out of his guys
    • Merging data with “in the trenches” coaching
    • How recruiting has changed in the midst of the transfer portal
    • Top 3 traits for a recruit to display
