I have 13 years of professional baseball experience and love passing on all my knowledge. I Personalize each lesson to each student's needs and ability. No 2 players are alike. Everyone has there style and people shouldn't try to alter that. I do not want to create robots but I personalities! It's not just about the mechanics and how to grip a pitch (which is all very important), it's about connecting with the athlete and breaking things down for them. Baseball is 90% mental, so why don't we teach that part as well. A great player has a game plan to attack and that is what I believe I did well in my playing days and hope to pass on to the next best man in line. Why not you?!!
I love to talk baseball with anyone who will listen.
He knows his stuff
Very knowledgeable, good communicator
A pool of knowledge.
Hitting lessons. Fabio was a professional left-handed pitcher and he helps prepare my lefty hitting son by throwing him curves, sliders, etc. Great way to prepare for facing LH pitching in games. Very valuable batting practice where you actually get better because of it.
The first lesson with a new client is instructional. I talk and listen to them, asking some questions on what they want to get accomplished with the lesson and then watch and break down any mechanical flaws I may see.
I have played for 13 years professionally in which time was have had some great pitching coaches like John Franco of the New York Mets.
I have been training athletes for the last 4+ years of all ages at several baseball academies in the Chicagoland area.
Lesson rates are:
$50 per 30 minutes
$90 per 60 minutes
introductory rate $35 (first 30-minute lesson, only new clients)
for the love that I have for baseball and helping kids reach their goals
Male and Female athletes ranging in ages from 7-18 years old
Competing in the 2004 Olympics in Athens and the 2006 World Baseball Classic has to be at the top of my list.
You have to make sure the trainer has a positive personality and makes the lesson a fun experience. Without fun, the hard work will be left behind.
If a student feels they have a need, then they shouldn't be afraid to speak their mind. In sports or any field, asking questions is what makes someone get better.
