When we work with a player and the light bulb turns on.  Skill development can be challenging and a long process.  But when it clicks, it's rewarding to see it.  And then the development continues to improve session after session until they begin seeing success on the field.

FAQs


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

We go through a dynamic warmup and start skill work.  After watching some swings or throws, we will either introduce some drills to work on specific deficiencies or get on video to get a baseline video.  


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

We've been doing private lessons since PBC started in 2008.  Our coaches have all played high school and college ball and some have played in the Minor Leagues.  As the owner, my job is to continually educate the coaches with the latest training methods.  


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We offer single sessions for $50.  All sessions are 60 minutes in length.


How did you get started teaching?

Growing up I always wanted to start my own baseball academy to provide high level instruction and competitive teams.  After college I started giving private lessons.  Now we offer private lessons, group training, camps, fall ball, and summer teams.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with players ages 8-40.  We work with everyone from community ball players to college players to professional players.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We've had two former players selected in the MLB draft that went very early.  Adley Rustchman in 2019 went 1st overall to Baltimore and Aaron Zavala in 2021 went in the 2nd round to Texas.  Both players spent a lot of time at PBC in high school and couldn't be happier to see their success.


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

Find the best fit that works with your personality.  We are instructional first and want to help each player develop to the best of their ability.  It takes time and it will be frustrating at times, but that's part of the process.


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

We typically ask questions like what are your goals, what are your strengths and weaknesses, where do you want to focus your work this off season, etc.  Have a plan for your training.  Don't just show up and get unfocused reps.
