I have over 30 years experience coaching baseball at all levels from youth to college. I am currently coaching baseball at Pasadena City college.I've coached numerous MLB players through out the years ex: Michael Young, Dan Haren, Mike Lamb, Jeremy Giambi, Shawn Wooten, Cory Lidle, Randy Knott, Mike Moustakis, Tijaun Walker, Vince Velasquez, Tyler Wade, Christian Yelich and many more. 

I love to see the development of a player as he or she learn the proper techniques and mechanics of there skills. I pride myself on getting the most out of my students by making sure they understand what is being taught to them.

    Richard is an excellent coach. My son has improved on the field and at the plate. Rich is a great confidence builder for any young player.
