  • BRANDON LEONARD

    Coach Joe was awesome. Always prompt and professional. My son doesn't have much experience with baseball, but Coach Joe did great job of teaching him the fundamentals of the game.

  • Kristen Sheehy

    Coach Joe brings an abundance of experience with a kind & patient heart. He has been a wonderful match for my shy 1st time 8 year old baseball player. I have seen my son’s confidence & skills go up steadily with our weekly sessions. I highly recommend him!

  • Jason Goodman

    Coach Joe is a good baseball coach. He knows the game and works well with kids. He also knows how to work with the parents, as we are all different.

  • Jason Smith

    Coach Joe is a true baseball enthusiast and loves working toward the betterment of the game. He is very detailed and relatable to our 9 year old that is just now getting into kid pitch baseball. He had him throwing strikes within one session and Brian looks forward to our weekly meetings with Coach Joe. I coach football and know a good coach when I see one. Very prompt and great communication. 10 out of 10 would hire him again.
