Over the past 16 months or so I’ve come to know Brian Tiemann very well. When we first started working with Brian my nine-year-old at the time was in desperate need of proper instruction and motivation. Bryan brought to the table a level of baseball knowledge and the ability to articulate his thought process into a manner that a nine-year-old could understand. The difference from today then 16 months ago with my child’s ability the play is astonishing. My son started off as being one of the children on the bottom of the talent list to one of the top players on the team. Brian‘s ability to teach the game of baseball is only one of the attributes that Brian possesses. His character is unmatched. The bond that he and my son have is unbreakable. Their interactions are not just teacher and student, but as friends or even big brother and little brother. Brian has also been training my 6 year old son and now my 13 year old son now that he is back in baseball. He has done such a great job training my boys that where he goes my boys go.
My son has been working with Coach Tiemann and the Hurricanes for two years. His overall performance on and off the field has significantly improved. The coaches have nothing but the kids best interest at heart.
We have had 2 boys working with Coach Tiemann for over two years. They have both grown so much in their skill and self confidence level because of his coaching. He not only knows and loves the game but he loves sharing it with his students.
Great coaching. The boys have learned so much and continue to learn weekly.
Typically we start with the swing, everybody wants to be able to hit, and if you can hit, you can find your way into the line up. We work to create/ build a swing that is designed with the players strengths in mind. Not everyone is built like Mike Trout and Aaron Judge, so not everyone should swing like them. Then we take a look defensively and fix throwing mechanics to prevent injury and then build arm strength. Included in that part is defensive work as well, fielding and catching fly balls. Working the feet for good tracking and smooth transitions on the infield.
Currently I am the Director of Player Develooment/ Owner of the Hill Country Renegades. I started out as a head coach for the Next Level Hurricanes, now Wings West where I was for right at 3 years. years. Played college ball, started at the DIII Level, went to a JUCO and then played at Sam Houston State University.
Standard rates are $60/ hour or $35/ half hour. That being said, I try to not let the money be a determining factor. If people need help, we can always work something out.
Once I got injured and wasn’t able to play at the level I expected to coaching was the only way for me to stay involved with the game and still be able to have an impact. This game is so much more than baseball and I love getting to teach that to kids and hopefully that creates the opportunity for future success, in baseball or otherwise.
I’ve worked with kids of all ages, 6 year olds to kids in college.
Don’t just look at a coaches playing resume, there are lots of guys out there that played at higher levels and have little passion to actually teach, to become emotionally invested in the kid. Also avoid anybody that says they can teach your kids to have success seemingly overnight. Hitting a baseball is hard, learning to throw hard takes time, conquering the fear of wearing a ground ball to the teeth takes time. Nobody fixes anything in 1 hour.
Ask why a lot. Why this drill, what in my swing makes you think this? What do you see with my throwing that could lead to injury? Are you going to be honest or just make me feel good so I keep coming back?
