My name is Danny Kasher. I've played competitive baseball my entire life at a high level. I went to Downers Grove South as a lefty pitcher where we made it to the Illinois Super Sectionals. I also played a year at Benedictine University my freshman year of college. During my years of school, I was also an athletic instructor at the Indian Boundary YMCA for over 5 years. I specialize in teaching proper pitching mechanics/new pitches as well as hitting mechanics. I'm also really good at throwing BP if you'd just like to get some hitting reps in.
I love seeing the journey of how far players come since starting with the lessons. I've worked with a few kids over the last 2 years and I love hearing about their success/improvements on the baseball field.
My son and I cannot say enough great things about Coach Danny! Through all of his training and playing experience, he has acquired a deep knowledge and passion for baseball. He has been gifted with a natural ability to teach and authentically connect with each player. His ability to effectively communicate with players of all ages commands authority, radiates credibility, boosts motivation and produce is fantastic results!
Danny does an excellent job identifying and working with the players needs in regards to hitting. My son enjoyed going to the lessons because Danny made it fun for the boys.
I first start by letting them throw/swing like they've been doing. Then I start to slowly tweek their mechanics based on what they're doing wrong.
