Taking the marginal player, the player that no one thinks will be good, maybe the player who's been cut one or two times, and making them a better player overall.

I never want to really take the star athlete I want to take the athletes who needs to improve that's where I think I really do my best work,with those who want to work hard to improve.

    You will see results if you put the work in , and it’s bigger than baseball. NYHA is a family , just happens to be one with some of the most talented and humble players from all over.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I am a huge fan of making the player the most athletic.

Also really big on speed and as a hitter. I really want strong crisp consistent hard contact.

I want to keep what works and upgrade it.

And then put an correct approach to  the hitter.

Strong barrel contct is what i seek first and foremost

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

In the 16 year history of The Harlem Baseball Hitting Academy we have been very fortunate to not only make good ball players. but just as talented young men of academic standard and achievement. 

The goal has been to bring the best instruction available to young Inner-City baseball players.

This has made The Harlem Baseball Hitting Academy one of the most successful academies in the United States
