About this pro

My name is Jake and I have been playing the game of baseball for 20 years now. I went to JSerra Catholic, was the captain of the UCLA Baseball Team for 2 years, and was drafted by the Yankees last year in the 2019 MLB Draft. I enjoy working with younger baseball players from ages 10 to high school! I have learned from many of the best high school, college, and professional baseball coaches around and enjoy passing down the information to those who are looking to get better and have fun!

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

First I figure out what their position is, goals are, and aspirations they are dreaming of. I then watch their swings/throws/defensive habits to see what kind of foundation they have because every athlete is unique, requiring different teaching methods.

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

I have played the game for 20 years. I am a JSerra and UCLA baseball alum, where I won multiple trinity leage championships and a Pac-12 championship, while being the captain of the team. Now currently playing for the New York Yankees, since last year where I was drafted in the 2019 MLB Draft.

How did you get started teaching?

I got started with 1 lesson, started incrementally building from there.

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

I would look for someone who has played the game. There are some things that you just cannot teach from watching and through analytics. A lot of teaching comes from feel, rather than what you see, and it is impossible to have the right feel for mechanics if you don't have any experience.

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

A lot of the questions that are undervalued are questions regarding the mental game. I am open to any questions that have to do with the cerebral part of the game, along with the physical adjustments needed to make you a better player.
