About Me

My name is Hector Berrios, I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to New York City at the age of 7. The South Bronx was a challenging place to be raised in the 1970’s with the many crimes related to gang violence, buildings being burned to the ground by landlords to collect insurance, poor educational system. Worst of all were the impoverished living conditions. All that being said the Bronx produced One of the highest-ranking officers in Colin Powell, it was the birth place, Hip-hop, Breakdancing, and many other great things that evolve throughout this great country.

Testimonials

“Meeting Hector Berrios was a life-changing experience that transformed me from a position player in Cuba to a Major League pitcher in September of 2019 with an increased velocity of 99/100 mph. Hector taught me everything about pitching from A to Z and I learned so much in such a short period of time.”

 

Ronald Bolaños

Right-handed Pitcher San Diego Padres

“My fortunes completely changed when I started working with Hector and it wasn’t long before I landed a multimillion-dollar contract with the Cincinnati Reds. My experience in the United States did not get off to a good start. I was awarded the rookie of the year in the Cuban professional league and was ready to take my talents to the next level. “

 

Vladimir Gutierrez

Right-handed Pitcher Cincinnati Reds

“After being around Hector for four years, I haven’t seen anyone more dedicated to absorbing as much information possible and perfecting his craft. I’ve seen him, time and time again, take a kid who I thought had nothing on the ball except his hand, help him throw harder, repeat his delivery release point, and increase velocity, all the while retaining arm health. He has taken information from a lifetime of acquaintances and put it into use to become one of the best, if not the best I have ever seen. I have nothing but respect for this man. When he speaks, I listen.”

 

Pat Borders

17 years MLB catcher, 1992 World Series MVP, two-time World Series Champion, Toronto Blue Jays

“After working with Hector Berrios and applying the stuff in Unleash the Pitcher in You, I got back to the big leagues and saved 67 games at the AAA level (32 and 35) on back to back years. Back in 2014, I was up in the big leagues with the Atlanta Braves. I relied more on my secondary stuff to pitch because I couldn’t use my fastball effectively. Hector taught me how to become more efficient and I was better able to work my fastball. My direction to the plate and explosion of the lower half were two key factors for my success. I recommend Unleash the Pitcher in You to anyone who wants to take their pitching skills to the next level.”

 

Pedro Beato

Right-handed Pitcher Philadelphia Phillies

“I have worked with Hector Berrios for the last four years and have seen his work up close and personal. His attention to detail is second to none and as a result, has touched the lives of so many aspiring pitchers to reach levels beyond their expectations. His teaching is very contagious and fun. Unleash the Pitcher in You is a perfect illustration of how to develop a pitcher with all the inner the secrets he shares.”

 

Ray Burris

Former Major League Pitcher

“I had a 7.50 ERA and was on the brink of being released by the Toronto Blue Jays until I had the good fortune of having Hector Berrios as my pitching coach. A year and a half later, I was in the big leagues with Toronto and I could not have done it without Hector. He has a deep understanding of the pitching delivery and how to maximize a pitcher’s velocity. His knowledge of all facets of pitching, from pitch sequencing to the running game is why Unleash the Pitcher in You is a must read for any pitcher who is serious about maximizing their potential”

 

Brian Bowles

Right-handed Pitcher Toronto Blue Jays 2001-2003

“I’ve never met anyone as passionate as Héctor when it comes to pitching. His teaching is precise, direct, and aggressive, yet smooth: so, will be your pitching after reading Unleash the Pitcher in You. He takes pitching to a whole different level, which is why Unleash the Pitcher is simply a must-read for every young pitcher, parent, coach or just anyone who wants to elevate their game on the art of pitching.”
