We love baseball at The LAB (Learn All Baseball). It is the greatest sport and we want to see it taught the proper way to our youth. Andy Miller is a previous D1 player at EIU and a current high school pitching, hitting coach with 25 years of coaching experience. Andy was an All-Conference player at Lyons Township HS. He played at a high level of semi-pro until his late 30s. Andy has helped build several state championship winning teams as a coach at LT High School and is currently the Assistant Head Coach at Maine South HS in Park Ridge, IL.
Justin Cox played D1 baseball at Troy University in Alabama. He was a middle infielder that had to adapt and play the outfield as well. Justin was a two-time High School All-State Shortstop/Second baseman in NC. Justin holds the record for most hits in a career at Ben L. Smith HS. He played two summers in the NECBL wood bat league and was a two-time league all-star. Justin played 2B, 3B and RF while at Troy University.
Andy and Justin have coached travel baseball for the past five years together. Their teams have been ranked in the top ten in Illinois the previous two seasons at the 9u and 10u levels. They specialize in all aspects of the game and look forward to helping your son or daughter reach their full potential. With a combined 70+ years knowledge of baseball fundamentals we are looking to teach the next generation of athletes to be amazing baseball players.

Teaching youth the proper way to play, prevent injury and appreciate the process of an amazing game. There are so many life lessons taught through baseball. So many kids think failing means they are a failure and that is absolutely false. We set out to teach kids that the greatest players in the world fail 70% of the time, so enjoy the process b/c hard work will pay off.

Get to know them, make them comfortable to create a trusting relationship. Ask some qualifying questions to better understand their goals. Depending on what type of baseball lesson we start with a series of stretches and drills that break down their mechanics.

Started doing lessons 20+ years ago when playing high school baseball.
Coached the youngest of beginning players at 4-5yrs. old all the way to current advanced college players at 22yrs. old.
Working with an 8yr old player that struggled to keep from stepping in the bucket due to being afraid of the ball. After 4 lessons of dedicated work, placing a real bucket behind his front foot, we trained his mind to simplify his feet and swing. This resulted in three straight line drives during his first game of the season.
Be honest about what you want and unafraid to fail. Failing forward is part of the process to becoming the player you want to be physically, but most most importantly, mentally! Look for a teacher that is a mentor that will push you and build you up while breaking you down.
Am I prepared to get better? Am I willing to give it 110%? Am I sensitive to failure?
