  • Tony Rodriguez

    He is a hitting coach. Teaches the correct format for a hitter

    Jason introduced my son to baseball. He was 5 years old, very active, without any knowledge of the game. Coach Jason was willing to take him on regardless. He had never worked with a child younger than 6 and he revised his strategies constantly to find a way to break things down for my son. He keeps the practice moving the full hour incorporating all skills. His patience is like nothing I have ever seen. Everyday I thought he would tell me my son was too young for an hour lesson, except he would just smile and say, “I think he’s having fun.” I have observed him in sessions with other players and his care for them is genuine. He follows up with them from week to week and the kids can tell he cares. This has been a great experience and I would give Coach Jason the highest recommendation.

  • Art Heredia

    Quick response. Good communication. My son enjoyed working with Jason.

  • Lupe Esparza

    Explains to my son the reason for the hitting drills, and is teaching him how to maximize his swing for better efficiency, ball placement etc.

FAQs


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

Evaluation. 

From there I teach 5-8 simple drills that can be done at home. All players are taught a hitting routine to complete at home after they work with me once a week. 

It usually takes 2-3 sessions to really see progress and players must continue to practice the drills every week to stay sharp. 


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

Former NCAA All American baseball player (2006). Played 4 years of college baseball on a full ride baseball schlorship. 

Worked with the Dodgers organization for 2 years.

Was the lead hitting coach at California State San Bernardino for two seasons after I finished playing (2008)

Have been a high school teacher and head baseball coach for the last 13 years.
