Florida Burn Baseball Prepares Differently.

Above, Coach Guthrie explains how.

Below, we summarize some key points from Burn’s use of uHIT Plus and uHIT Custom.

Florida Burn, Baseball Tech and Mental Preparation

The Florida Burn is a travel organization based in Southwest Florida. Mark Guthrie – the former Major League pitcher and World Series Champion (1991) – is Head Coach of the organization that has produced numerous college players and even some MLB Draft picks. The Florida Burn is a well known attractor for future D1 players and Guthrie’s philosophy of the game and life becomes part of a player’s experience when on the Florida Burn.

We will let the interview with Coach Guthrie speak for itself. But in case you want a guide to the short, 5-min interview above, here is what you can expect to learn from Coach Guthrie:

  • Which tech has stuck out for him, especially as it relates to travel ball
  • How Burn hitters mentally prepare for competition with a tool like uHIT
  • How data fits into college recruiting these days

The Florida Burn players have had exposure to uHIT since its early days as being deCervo’s first product to improve decisions (2017). In fact, deCervo’s first intern was Kevin Guthrie, Mark’s son, who successfully lobbied the deCervo founders for the position when he learned about the tech developing into uHIT. Coming out of Brown University as a baseball player, this internship was a first step for Kevin into the professional baseball world. And we are proud of where it has led him – the Pittsburgh Pirates and, today, the Detroit Tigers organizations.
