    Personal touch backed with Knowledge and Science.

  • Rosa Evans

    Chris is an excellent coach, exceptional professional and admirably human being.DMy son has been taking pitching practice with Chris for 6 months, the improvement is noticeable. During practice he teaches the kids more than just baseball, he tells them about life. He is knowledgeable and humble!

  • Kami Barnes

    The knowledge of the sport and his interactions with the kids is like no other! He treats every person the same no matter who they are to him. Chris is a stand up guy and I wound not take my son to anyone else.

  • Amanda

    Chris is the best! We have nothing but exceptional things to say about him and the facility! My son who is 7 has grown leaps and bounds since he started going to Chris well over a year ago. I would recommend anyone else!
