Eric Peterson Pitching Lessons


About this pro

I was the Pitching Coach at Neumann University in 2018 and worked in Baseball Operations for USA Baseball in 2019.

I pitched for two years at Temple University from 2012-2013 and at North Carolina State University in 2014. At Temple I was named to the All-Big 5 team in 2013 and made the 2014 All-ACC Academic Team while at NC State. After the 2014 season, I was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 37th round and spent four years in the organization, including two years at AA Corpus Christi in the Texas League.

I enjoy having the opportunity to work with all players who have the same passion for baseball and pitching that I do. All of the progress that athletes make is attributed to their hard work and I want to do the best I can to help them achieve their goals.

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

The most important part for me is to communicate with the player on what they feel they need to work on to get better as a pitcher. Rather than going straight into instructing, I like to watch the pitcher throw first so I can give input at the end of the lesson and for the future. For every lesson afterwards, I like to focus on one aspect of pitching to work on, as opposed to giving the student/pitcher several things to think about. 

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

In 2018 I was the Pitching Coach at Neumann University. I have done several lessons in the winter during my time as a player. I worked with pitchers between 12-17 years old, all who had different goals and needs to get better. I also spent time coaching a travel team in the fall.

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

$20/30 minutes for one athlete. $40 for a full hour in groups of 2-4.

How did you get started teaching?

While I was a player, I enjoyed doing lessons and coaching during the offseason. When my playing career was finished in May 2017, I still had a passion for baseball. I have learned a lot from playing at two D1 Universities and playing at one of the highest levels of professional baseball. I want to use all that I have learned from my experiences and help other players reach the goals and aspirations that they have.
