I have been a Counselor, Baseball Coach, Baseball Director, Director & Owner of Baseball Camps since 1968. In 1985 I started instructing youngsters in the area with the proper mechanics of hitting a baseball.
My hitting technique is most closely associated with rotational hitting, which is hitting against your front leg, not to be confused with linear hitting which is hitting or shifting onto your front leg.
Regardless of the level of play whether it is T-Ball, Little League, Girls Softball, High School Baseball or Softball and Collegiate levels, athletes who are taught and learn the proper hitting techniques will be recognized as having outstanding baseball fundamentals by those who know and understand the game.
I have instructed and coached thousands of athletes, many of whom have received sports scholarships to play Baseball. Some have gone on to play professional Baseball such as :
Bernie Williams (NY Yankees)
Jon Alexander (KC Royals)
Mel Stottlemyre Jr. (KC Royals)
Todd Stottlemyre (Toronto Blue Jays)
Brad Ausmus (Houston Astros)
Shawn Brown (Detroit Tigers)
Tim Adkins (Toronto Blue Jays)
George Sandel (NY Mets)
Zach Minor (Detroit Tigers)
Andy Abad (Boston Redsox)
Roy Silver (St. Louis Cardinals)
Pitche Balet (Seattle Mariners)
Brian Jeroloman (Toronto BlueJays)
Robbie Morrison (KC Royals)
Travis Bailey (St. Louis Cardinals)
Chuck Jeroloman (Boston Red Sox)
Brandon Welch (NY Mets)
Nick Marrell (Texas Rangers)
I am working in a camp in New York as Head Baseball Coach right now. I will be back middle to the of August.
If your interested I will email you when I get back. I do my lessons at Phipps Park in West Palm Beach.
Love workng with children and seeing them improve into better hitters and watching there games and videoing them, sending parents video and snapshots of what they do right or wrong.
Coach Phil was Awesome!! My son was hit by a pitch in the face in his first at bat in the minors. Coach Phil took the time and effort to get my son back in the box and Batting like a Pro. My son is now playing for Rec league Allstars and Travel Baseball. Thanks Coach Phil!!
Phil is great. My son has been going to Phil for several years now. I have been to several other batting coaches prior. Phil knows how to analyze and correct a swing better than any of the other coaches that I’ve been to. Actually, better than anyone I’ve ever known. I myself have learned so much about hitting from Phil. My son was one of the top hitters on his team last year thanks to Phil. Now other team members are going to bat like a pro with Phil for their lessons. The batting lessons are also the most reasonably priced lessons out of any batting instructor in Palm Beach County from my experience. I would recommend and encourage anyone who wants to learn more about hitting and have their player improve their hitting skills to go see Phil at Bat like a pro. You will not be disappointed.
Coach Phil offers direct, no-nonsense instruction to both my kids, and both have improved their swings tremendously over the last 6 months. Phil develops a positive rapport with his students. I look forward to continuing working with Coach Phil for the foreseeable future
