About this pro

I'm a former collegiate pitcher and an experienced travel coach. Baseball has been my passion since I can remember and passing on the knowledge to kids that was given to me by some great professional ballplayers is one of the greatest joys in my life. 

A couple of things I feel that separate me from other coaches is I am extremely flexible with scheduling and I'm a firm believer in parental involvement in the lesson. You will see more progress much faster if you are on the same page as your ballplayer. So that is why I encourage parents to be involved in the lesson and ask questions and learn their child's strengths and weaknesses. Then you can go home and work with your child and know what areas we are focusing on. You will see progress much faster and you can spend quality time with your child while at the same time watching for bad habits and good mechanics. 

I have a very high strung, outgoing, and fun personality. You will have fun at our lessons regardless of your age I guarantee it. I'm very high energy enthusiastic about life in general so we will always keep things positive and upbeat. But I will be firm and I do demand effort and attentiveness from your child and I don't tolerate laziness, bad language, or negative self talk. 

I would have to say I enjoy working with the kids the most. There's nothing more satisfying than to see a young ball player have that moment where it "clicks" and he sees results of the work he has put in. I have been mentored and had the honor of coaching with some of the greatest baseball minds in the area and I'm excited and ready to start working with young men or women who share the same passion about the game as I do.

  • Collin Reich

    I grew up playing ball with Brodie in high school and college and let me say this. Brodie has a passion for this game that not to many people have. And the fact that he’s even more passionate about passing on his knowledge of this game says all you need to know. I know one thing if your ready to control the bumb and drop bombs give Brodie call he’s your guy..

    Whenever I would have a lesson with coach Brodie and I wasn't able to do something right he wouldn't get impatient or angry he would have me do drills until I got it right

FAQs


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

ALLOW ME TO BE TRANSPARENT WITH YOU FROM THE VERY START: 

1. You, as the parent/guardian, have full control of the lesson you take and how long and what he/she works on. Not them. If you come in specifically asking for first base defense then you will not see me throwing soft toss to him. This is your hard earned money and thus your show and you run it parents. What separates me is I want to work along side the parents/guardians so that YOU understand what I'm teaching as well.

2.  Now I actually encourage the parents to stay right next to me or within an earshot because y'all are the ones paying for this, I think some of these other coaches have no sense telling the parents they aren't allowed inside the facility when their child is doing a lesson. Remember, you will not see progress from a one hour workout with me. You will see progress when you take what you've learned, and go home and apply it and work on your own time or preferably with a parent who knows what to look for and correct since they've been present at the lesson. Now obviously I do not require the parent to be present, feel absolutely free to drop them off and pick them up. I know not all parents have the time to stay during lessons and practices. I just want to be clear that if you want to be involved in the lesson, I encourage it. So if you decide to schedule a lesson with me then please feel free to walk right on the field and stand right next to me and ask me anything. Especially if you have younger kids it's much easier for the parent to retain the information I'm relaying. 

3. I am very laid back but I won't hesitate to make your child take a lap if he/she's goofing off. I'm very fun to be around, highly energetic, animated and I just might be having more fun than your child the first few times until they get to know me. They will loosen up fast I'm very easy to talk to. 

4. Lastly, this is more for the older, advanced, highschool level players. If you hear me contradicting anything that one of their current school coach has told them, then please stop me and we will make an adjustment. One of the biggest issues I see with young ballpayers these days is all the contradictory coaching they receive. And it will only get worse with time and the analytics movement. Everybody will have an opinion and most will say their way is the only correct way. Which just is not the case in baseball, different things work for different players and even Major Leaguers will tell you they are constantly making adjustments and mechanical tweaks to keep improving. All that to say is that I have found it very counterproductive trying to teach conflicting ideas of hitting and confusing the poor kid. If that situation arises we will approach it wisely as to not make the ballplayer feel uncomfortable. 

I could go on all day about baseball I really could but I better save some info for lessons. Y'all come give me a try! You won't regret it and you will see improvement or your money back‼️‼️


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

I've played 4 years of college baseball as a pitcher. 

I've learned from and been mentored by some great baseball minds and former professional ballplayers like Greg Runser (Padres), Kyle Crowell (A's), and Kelly Cross (Twins) who was my coaching mentor. He owns and manages one of the top tournament teams in the nation, the KC Oilers Baseball Club, where I managed the 12u and 14u select teams.
