About this pro

I would like to see beginners and youth baseball players (and their parents) establish a decent foundation of good fundamentals that they can build on going into their respective leagues. I have experience coaching multiple Park teams as well as travel baseball. I do not charge for the first session and let the parent decide if they think the information is useful enough to continue with training. I played and up through high school and some junior college ball. Have 2 sons that have always been multi sport athletes.

I have found through working with both my boys and others kids that I can't stand bad baseball. It turns out that I have learned to work with kids and getting them confident with their skills. Kids (especially starting out,) should have supplemental coaching or lessons in addition to what is taught in their individual team practices. This what I intend to offer. I also bring multiple years of "paid for" lessons as well.

    “Patience”,understanding how to work with Very young athletes. My son is 8, he was very disappointed with His power / hitting. Confidence : After one lesson his passion returned for hitting, although we have many more lessons to go he can’t wait to learn more. If you want your son to have confidence in himself with a patient and understanding coach this is the group you need to choose!

What types of students have you worked with?

Ages 4-15


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Coaching my oldest sons all star team to the state semi final tournament for Helena park and Rec league. 2018


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I don't know if many coaches or dads willing to spend their time working with kids that are not their own on an individual basis. I think this can give kids a huge advantage to having a "head start"!on the rest of the team for the season to come. Most little league coaches spend most of their time in formal practices keeping the kids focused as a team rather than individual training. This is for the family that prefers their kid excel rather than just participate. Also have a solid base knowledge to build on throughout their baseball career.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What aspect of their child's game they feel is most important to start working on? For example defense, catching, throwing, hitting etc.

I can also advise the parents on purchase of the child's baseball equipment. Bat size, glove size, etc.
