About this pro

At Second City Baseball, we set ourselves apart from the pack by taking an individualized approach to player development, creating an individualized training program to best suit the goals of each individual student that comes into our facility, rather than using a blanket approach with everyone. 

New students will be baseline tested in hitting, throwing, and strength and conditioning immediately, and establish clear and attainable goals with their instructor. This will allow instructors to create an individualized plan that will best suit that specific student.

FAQs


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

When working with a new student, spending a few minutes getting to know the player and their goals (short-term, intermidiate and long-term) and establishing some baseline measurments through testing is essential to the overall success of the student and their development. 


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

I have been coaching baseball at various age levels for the past seven years, with the last five coming at the high school level. I am currently the Director of Player Development at Second City Baseball, and I am a NFHS (National Federation of State High School Associations) and IHSA (Illinois High School Association) certified instructor.

How did you get started teaching?

I began working with the 12-14 year old age group(s) while coaching for the Westchester Knights, a local part-time travel program in Westchester, Illinois before being hired by the Chicago Mudcats as a high school level assistant coach.

Before leaving the Mudcats, I was elevated to the 17U head coach position and named the program's recruiting coordinator, focusing primarily on the collegiate recruitment of the program's high school players.

After leaving the Chicago Mudcats after the fall of 2018, I opened my own indoor facility in west-suburban Bensenville, Illinois, which serves as a player development facility and the home of our travel baseball and softball teams, the Illinois Cardinals. 


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

My best piece of advice for a student looking for the right instructor, would be to find an instructor who is open-minded and knowledgeable enough to create an individualized plan of attack that will best suit your specific goals, rather than using the same blanket approach with every student that walks through the door.
