Hello~ My name is Steven Leppert. It depends on if you're looking for baseball or personal training. I am a former College All-American @ Jacksonville State University in Alabama, where I was named to their All-Time Team, captained them to the College World Series and played in the prestigious Cape Cod League. I am a former pro baseball player with the Reds Organization and oldest son of former Major League catcher and coach Don Leppert. I have been coaching and teaching for over 25 years. I concentrate on hitting, switch-hitting, bunting, pitching, throwing mechanics, base running, stealing bases, catching, infield and outfield play and game situations. If you become a regular client(s) I would like to attend some of your games this season and see you play and/or practice. I not only focus on the basics & fundamanetals, but the minsdet and cerebral approach to hitting, and baseball.
I enjoy assiting people lead healthy lifestyles, and coaching and mentoring those from 5-82, whether it is with baseball, or personal training.
Simply put...he's very good...
Steve went out of his way to make sure my son had the perfect lesson. Really appreciate him going the extra mile. My son really liked him and we'll be seeing him again!
Great teacher both my boys have fun with Coach Lep!
My son loved working with Coach! We will definitely keep working with him.
First, I try to assess their fitness level. Second, We simply play catch and I see how they throw and receive the ball. Third, I ask them to loosen up and run a bit. Then, depending on their position, we work on their strengths & weaknesses and how to improve them. In HS I started as a Freshman with 8 Seniors, played SS and Catcher. At JSU I played 3rd my Freshman year, C my sophomore year, and played CF my Junior Year. For the Reds I played 2nd, 3rd, SS, C, CF and even pitched a few innings. I was a lead off switch hitter, and once ran a 6.38 60. I have played every position at some level, and have a firm grasp on all. As far as pitcher's, once they turn 13-14 I turn them over to a qualified pitching coach. Growing up as the son of a Major Leaguer I saw many of the greats play, and was a sponge as a toddler going to a MLB ballpark every day.
Drafted twice, once out of H.S. (16th round) and College (5th round).

Individual, group and package rates. The more you schedule, the better the pricing. I usually have water, and a nutrition bar snack for them as well.

Baseball players from 5 and up, to college players.
Assisted a kid in making his Jr. High team...in which he was elated.
Don't just shop rates, talk before and try one lesson before committing to more. Less isn't always more, and make sure they at least played and started in college, if not further professionally...
