About this pro

Before I say anything else please enter your phone number so i may contact you by phone before any lesson is set up. 

Thank you.

I am a baseball instructor who specializes in left handed pitchers. My main goals for any athlete I coach is steady progress. To be a pitcher ypu must have finess as well as power. Whether your athlete is inexperienced or on a more advanced level I can help, whether it is to become more accurate, throw harder or learn new pitches I can help. The first lesson i will asses the athlete to determine what needs to be worked on unless athletes parent discuss with me before we begin the lesson. After that i will taylor a plan that will fit the needs of each specific athlete. I am currently working with 12 families, and i am looking to expand my business outside of my city. I love pitching and how it teaches a person to deal with success and failure. It teaches you how to self-motivate and how to work hard for your future goals. My passion as a coach is not to see just a success story, I want to see an athlete grow as a person.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When i aquire a new student i will first do a phone call asking the student to come up with two major goals that they have in mind. Once we have discussed those goals i can then meet for lesson 1, wich is a general assesment of the students performance level (novice, intermediate, advanced). Lesson 1 will be 10 to 15 mins of stretching, 15 mins of warm up catch. Then an assesment bullpen where i will not say anything to the student until after the lesson is over. Then from there i will give details on what needs to be worked on and how we can begin to fix either mechanical problems, mental, or physical strength improvement. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Ive been a pitching instructor since i was a college athlete in 2011. I have 15 years experience of learning how to be a proficient pitcher where i broke 4 of my high schools baseball records (most wins in a single season, most wins in a high school career, most strikeouts in a season, and most strikeouts in a high school career.) I was awarded first team all league three out the 4 years as a high schooler, and i was awarded 2nd team all league as a college athlete.

How did you get started teaching?

After i quit baseball i took a few years off, but eventually people from my home town continued to ask of i was availabe for pitcbing lessons, once i started back up i fell in love with the game all over again, now as a coach. Baseball has been good to me, now its time to give back to the sport.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with ages 8-18 anything below that is typically just teaching the absolute basics of throwing a bassball


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

Hire someone that seems to be the most open and honest. You can watch youtube videos on how to be a better pitcher, but if you have someone there to show you if you are doing it right or wrong thats the difference. Person to person face to face that is where you learn the tricks of the trade.


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

What is it that i want to acomplish by hiring a coach? How can i prepare myself before contacting a coach?
