Baseball Instruction with AJ Monarrez:
Former professional pitcher in the South Bay looking to help develop young baseball players in the greater Los Angeles area by teaching the athlete the breakdown of mechanics and what needs to be utilized in order to create the potential power of an all-star. Playing at the Division 1 level in college, along with playing professionally in Mexico, I have learned much about myself as an athlete through injury. Therefore, being able to teach young baseball players the proper mechanics in order to prevent injury, gain strength, and develop overall as a baseball player I believe will benefit them in their future career.

One of the attributes I enjoy about teaching baseball is being able to be part of the journey of an athlete that is seeking to get better and develop in the game of baseball. When a young baseball player puts in the work, it goes unnoticed until it is game time on the field, and being able to help someone to grow and perform as an athlete is what I enjoy most.
Very knowledgeable bout the game of baseball, Son has become a better pitcher with confidence on the mound

AJ has taught my 10 & 12 year old-boys how to warm up properly, strengthen their arm and shoulder, and improve their pitching mechanics. He is extremely thorough, teaching them how to use their lower half and drive the ball. He works on strategy and has built their confidence.
My son worked with AJ over the summer on pitching and long toss to help strengthen is arm. My son immediately connected with AJ and really looked forward to the private workouts. AJ also coached his travel ball team and was very effective at teaching and encouraging the boys but also making it fun for everyone. AJ coached the team to the championship game with only 8 players for one of the games which we won!
Go over what area the athlete is looking to improve and come up with a plan in order to develop the athlete.
Playing baseball at the division 1 level and professionally in Mexico has not only educated me more about the game of baseball but along the way I have picked many tools that can help young athletes develop.
