Baseball By Coach Red
“Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”Great words from a legend that will forever ring true from the humble little leaguer to the established pro. I am a non pro coach who loves what he does and would do it for free if not necessary. Been coaching 7 years, from ages 5-13 and single A to AAA select/ travel ball. Started out in California and am now here training my own family here in the great state of Texas.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I work with a player’s specific needs (hitting, throwing, fielding) and of course overall skills, including mental approach to the game as well.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Been in baseball since the age of 4 and it’s been my life ever since. Never played pro level but have had over 10 years of adult league in California. Found I’m a better coach/trainer than I ever was as a player. It’s a passion for me to see results in these young stars.

How did you get started teaching?
It all started when friends family kept asking for help with their kids and teams. Then they kept insisting that I should charge for my services since I’m providing the same training as these paid pro coaches/trainers.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with kids from age 4 to age 13. From tee ball modified tee ball coach pitch to AAA select.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I recently trained a 12 year old prodigy whom now has pitched 2 straight hitless games in 2 different Texas state championships. Not to mention a Tara Sawyer tournament outstanding performer medal.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure you find a trainer that focuses on your child’s needs and does not take the same approach teaching all his students for they are all not the same. Some absorb information differently and require more attention and patience in certain areas.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Which part of their game they need improving How much time to spend on improving. What to do to improve. No question is a dumb question. As long as we stay on topic but no guarantees. Lol
