I have been teaching baseball and softball for 18 years, primarily for those age 16 and under. I've managed teams to both local and national championships and am extremely active in local baseball.

Seeing players improve after working with them and helping them realize their potential.
Mike has been great. He is very patient with my son and does not rely heavy on technology, but on base mechanics and supported by technology
First we evaluate the player by measuring their exit velocity (hitting) and/or pitching velocity and charting this. As we continue with lessons we constantly re-evaluate so we can actually chart the progress.
I have been a successfull club manager, Little League Coaching Coordinator and am a member of the American Baseball Coaching Association.
Standard rates are $50/hr.
I do a 30 minute evaluation lesson for $35 where I evaluate the player, make suggestions and give the player and parent an opportunity to "evaluate" me as well to see if there is a good fit. If everyone is happy we can discuss further lessons.
I was a Little League and Club coach for 18 years. I purchased The Cages so I could fulfill my wish to coach for a living.
I've worked with kids ages 4-18, both boys and girls in baseball and softball. I work with both beginners and experienced players who are looking to take their game to the next level.
We hold Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring Break baseball clinics here at The Cages. They mostly sell out and we can spend 2-4 days actually teaching the kids proper fundamentals.
Always look for a coach that is experienced coaching kids. There are lots of ex-professionals, but if they've never worked with kids before there are usually communication problems.
Are they serious about their game?
Are they willing to work between lessons?
Can the exhibit patience while they learn something new or different?
Will they listen and apply what is being taught?
