About this pro

I teach hitters how to maximize their momentum in an effort to maximize distance and velocity.  I utilize self teaching drills with additional video analysis and simulation through HitTrax.

2-time all-american at The Univeristy of Central Missouri ('00,'01).

2-time regional tournament MVP.

Top 10 in UCM history for batting avgerage and homeruns.

I enjoy working with athletes and talking the game of baseball.  Baseball is a sport that never ceases to amaze and there are always new things to learn.  You never stay the same as an athlete.  You are either getting better or getting worse, but never the same.

I have been playing baseball for over 30 years, including 5 years of college baseball (UCM).  I have been instructing athletes for over 10 years.

How did you get started teaching?

I have always observed the game of baseball, even from a young age.  I come from a family of educators so I have always been a bit of a teacher.   After my playing career was over, I wanted to find a way that I could give back to the community and teaching kids the finer points about baseball was a way that I could give back.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked will all types of students from pre-school age to college athletes.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have been working with a hitter for a couple of months now, and it brings a smile to my face everytime a receive a text from his father telling me that his son "smoked" the ball today!  I'll never get tired of getting that text.


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

Choose a teacher that relates well to the student.  The best learing takes place when there is a good relationship between teacher and student.  Also try to choose an instructor  that clearly explains what they are trying to get the hitter to accomplish.  If the hitter doesn't understand the instructions, good luck seeing consistent results.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is/are my goals?

How do I want to accomplish my goals?

Am I willing to put in the time/effort to achieve my goals?
