As a Professional Hitting Instructor I absoluely love helping kids reach their full potential. I strive to positively impact the community through the game of baseball! My mission as a coach/teacher is to empower kids to have fun and grow. Not only as the very best baseball player & athlete but also as an individual.
Eric Fergusson has helped me develop my swing a tremendous ammount in a fairly short time. He does this using a variety of techniques. A big part of that is his passion for the game of baseball and helping me get better. He doesnt satisfy with just lessons. Throughout the week he sends me drills to help me improve on the motion or action we are trying to fix that week and then a video of a proffesional hitter swinging and how he swings so I can see what it looks like. He also willingly responds to texts if I have any questions or comments on how im feeling as I swing. Eric Ferguson has helped me tremendously and I would highly reccomend him to any player dedicated to improve their swing.
Eric is a great coach. He really cares about each kid he teaches. My swing has improved drastically in the last six months after working with him. He has a no nonsense + caring attitude that really helps his players
In the first lesson, I evaluate the players swing mechanics and overall athletic ablity using various hitting drills and slow motion video. Every player that works with me goes through a specific Swing Mechanics training regimen. Starting with Phase 1,2, and 3 of the swing. This helps build a professional baseball swing from the ground up. The foundation. After the first lesson I will ask what are the goals of the athlete. It is not only my job but my absolute passion to watch athletes I teach grow as great players and individuals.
Eric was part of the (4X) 5A State Champions at Rocky Mountain High School in 2010. RMHS was ranked top 10 in the nation in 2010.
Eric played JUCO and Division 1 Baseball finishing at Hofstra University. Additionally, Eric was lucky enough to play Professional Baseball for 4 different minor league teams in 3 different leagues.
Eric has a Professional Career Batting Average of .367
Eric's expertise in hitting instruction comes from his own experience & what was passed down from his MLB hitting coaches.
