VETERAN RELIEVER AVAILABLE FOR LESSONS

Minor League Ace Comes to Morristown,New Jersey

 

Scott Shuman, a veteran of 12 seasons of professional baseball, will be available for lessons beginning immediately in  Morristown, New Jersey.

 

Shuman most recently has spent five seasons in the independent Atlantic League, racking up impressive numbers.  During the last three years, while pitching for the Lancaster (PA) Barnstormers, the Georgia native has accumulated an 8-2 record with five saves and a 2.44 ERA while amassing 165 strikeouts in 120.2 innings of work.

 

The flamethrowing right-hander was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays out of Auburn University in 2009.  He spent four seasons with the Rays organization before moving to the San Francisco Giants in 2013, spending that year with Class AA Richmond. A RHP who's fastball sits in the mid to upper 90s range, has reached 100mph numerous times  in his career and is looking to teach the younger generation how to develop the skills/strength it takes to become a Professional Baseball Player. 

 

A kinesiology major at Auburn, Shuman adjusted his own mechanics prior to his arrival in the Atlantic League in 2015 and went on to become an All-Star in that circuit, pitching against clubs made up of numerous players with Major League experience.

 

In addition to his lengthy professional resume in the United States, Shuman has performed in the Mexican League toward the end of the 2018 summer as well as in the Venezuelan and Australian Winter Leagues, gaining cultural knowledge as well as honing his craft on the mound.

 

When at home in Valdosta, Shuman has worked one-on-one in developing young players for Five Star Sports.  The former Georgia all-state pitcher and shortstop has specialized in creating individual plans to teach fundamentals, refine mechanics and improve consistency while focusing on attainable goals.

 

 

The best part about helping younger athletes is seeing how excited they are when they realize how simple and fun pitching can be once they've  learned the proper mechanics.

How did you get started teaching?

My Dad is a hall of fame high school baseball coach in Georgia so I've been around baseball my whole life! Watching him help kids develop and grow in the game of baseball created a passion for coaching  in myself!


What types of students have you worked with?

I train athletes of all ages!


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

Expect the game to be made simple for you in a way where you can compete and think about the right things at the same time!


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

Do you love playing the game and what position do you like playing? Training for a position you don't want to play will be a waste of time! Baseball is meant to be fun and if you aren't having fun then what's the point!
