  • William Cox

    The knowledge and teaching ability of Mr. Garcia. The amount of detail he uses to explain the mechanics of hitting. In addition to instructing my daughter I have observed Mr. Garcia working with other hitters and his approach varies greatly as each hitter brings a different body, mechanics, and goals to the instruction. 5 plus stars and a great person to go with the experience.

  • Joel Orcutt

    Rey has worked with my daughters for more than a decade. I can't say enough about his approach to teaching. He knows the game, has experience at the highest levels of the sport and has a keen eye for mechanics. Most importantly, Rey knows how to talk with the girls and communicate very specific changes in ways that are easy to understand and implement. For anyone considering Garcia Hitting Academy, I can assure you that you won't find a better coach anywhere in the New England area.

  • Drew Nobike

  • Bonnie Brinker

    Rey is great. Whenever my son is struggling at the plate Rey always can identify the problem. He genuinely cares about his students wanting to help them achieve their goals at the highest level possible. He’s a positive influence
