About this pro

Former college baseball coach. at Keiser University in West Palm Beach, FL and TCS Postgrad in Mckinney, Tx.

I have been giving lessons for 8 years as well as following along with the newest trends and research.  I have worked with professional hitters across the country helping them with approaches, swing mechanics, fielding mechanics, arm care and how to be the most complete player.


I firmly believe I stand out because of the relationships I create with families and the way I care for my players. I do everything in my power to be a positive influence in their lives, not just be their coach.

I enjoy working with athletes and watching them see their progress and grow as athletes and as people. I enjoy being around the game and getting to know families and being a helping force in the growth development.

    Jake has a great understanding of the type of hitter he is working with. All hitters are different and if your coach isn't working on what your kids specific role is you don't have a good coach. Jake works on the things that will make your athlete perform to their best possible potential. He also makes the learning fun. Younger athletes must keep the fun in learning the game. I really can't say enough good things about him. Give it a shot And see for yourself.

  • Leland Allen

    He understands how his players and kids think. And he can teach in many different ways that make sense to his players.

  • Collin Cross

    Very personalized lessons, he isn’t afraid to do what he’s telling us to do in order to make sure we understand what ere doing as well as why we’re doing it.

  • Will Allen

    e is always pushing me to better my swing even if I’m doing my best and he was also able to help me bring up my confidence at the plate and get me to start hitting

FAQs


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

Identify strengths and weaknesses is the first thing I will do.. my goal is to make every hitter as comfortable and confident as they can be in the box.

defensively we will do drills that simulate game situations and will strengthen IQ of the game.

A lot of the work we do will be in the athletes hands as I believe the more control they have the more they will buy in.


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

I have learned from some of the best minds in the game picking their brains on how they develope athletes.. I attend yearly conferences and seminars to stay up to date on technologies and methods.

I typically charge $60 an hr but price is negotiable and I have done packages in the past for multiple lessons.

I have been working camps and clinics since I was in high school. I have always wanted to do it as a profession when I was done playing.  I love working with athletes and helping them find their why.

The youngest I have worked with was 8U. I have spent time with some MiLB players helping them prepare for upcoming seasons and helping tweak their mechanics and approaches


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

Make sure they are willing to develope a relationship, and make sure they are willing to let you ask questions.. nothing worse than a coach saying because I said to do it that way.
