About this pro

Baseball lessons from a 9 year professional that has been around and has had the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest players in baseball.  Email me with any questions at [email protected]

I enjoy helping athletes learn both sides of the game. Physical side and especially the mental side of the game. I take my experiences from my careers and the things that taught me and helped me the most in the game and put them into my coaching to help young athletes learn what I wish I could've learned at a younger age. I enjoy helping them learn the process of learning baseball and how to enjoy the game rather than only looking at the result. Baseball is a game of failure and the sooner you realize that along with how to learn from the failure you will be able to thrive and enjoy the game of baseball! I'm here to team that!

FAQs


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

The first lesson will be more for me to see how the athlete performs along with me finding areas that they can improve on and focus on in future lessons.  Along with talking to the athlete about what areas they would like to focus on whether it be hitting, fielding, footwork, etc. From there we will pick something each lesson to work and focus on so we can target a weak point along with improving their strengths as well. 


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

Studied kinesiology at Arizona State University while playing baseball for the Sun Devils. 

Played Professional baseball in the New York Yankees organization reaching double A level. 8 years professional experience and currently playing for the Canberra Cavalry in the Australian Baseball League.

How did you get started teaching?

In baseball you are always coaching yourself on every part of the game. I had a few of my teammates ask me if I could help them with their swing and I realized I enjoyed coaching the game as well as playing it. From there on I have been playing the game as well as coaching younger players that are excited and have that WANT to be better in the game. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with young athletes to professional athletes. 


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

Make sure you are being taught the basic fundamentals of the game (may sound boring but needed) as well as the mental part of the game. Baseball is a very mental game! 

Also watch out for all the hitting "gurus" that are trying to teach kids crazy things these days. Most drills I see coaches do with young athletes nowadays are useless and don't actually help the athlete. They just look good on video because to someone looking for a coach they will think "that must be the new big thing". Be careful of those!
