My name is Kyle Butler and am a former Division 1 baseball player at Radford University that played from 2014-2019 and a current professional baseball player for the Santa Fe Fuego from 2019-current. I am a utility player with my two main positions being second base and centerfield, while having played first base, shortstop, third base, leftfield, and rightfield in collegiate and/or professional baseball. I hit and throw right handed. Some accomplishments I earned in my baseball career at Radford included 2nd Team All Big South Infielder in 2017, 1st Team All Conference Tournamnet Team in 2017, 1st Team All Big South Utility Player in 2019, and 1st Team All Virginia Team in 2019, and a nominee for the Big South All-Decade Team. I also played professional baseball for an Independent League this past summer in New Mexico. I had a 300 average with 9 doubles, 36 runs, and 13 stolen bases.
I am very passionate about the game of baseball. It has been my life for the past 15 years and am looking to help kids from the age of 5-18 take their baseball skills to the next level by giving them information I have gained from some great coaches and players over the years. I will specialize my training sessions in hitting, fielding, throwing, pitching, catching, baserunning, and speed productivity.
Kyle is amazing! He is easy to get a hold of and works with our schedule and does what’s best for us. My son asks everyday if we’re seeing Kyle and is learning so much every lesson. We are so happy to have found him.
1. I get some information from the player on what he is looking to improve on and what his goals are for playing baseball.
2. The first lesson is more of an evaluation period. I basically just watch the player and see what is strenghts and weaknesses are and make a plan on what we need to start working on moving forward. With some of my package plans, the first lesson, or the evaluation, is free.
3. We find a schedule that works for my client and we get to work. We do hour lessons on a field or indoor facility. I am in constant contact with my client giving feedback on lesson, what he or she can do at home or with me not around, tips on how to keep your body healthy and able to recover faster, and more.

I think experience playing baseball at a high level is important. I also think finding a coach who is good at connectiong with the student is just as important. Alot of baseball coaches have knowldge, but the ones who can translate it to players the easiest are the ones who succeed in it. Also, alot of people tend to think that lessons are too expenive. While they can be pricy, DO NOT just hire someone because they are the cheapest. I am not saying clear your wallet for a lesson, but just like anything else, you get what you pay for. Most coaches come up with a formula for their price that includes time, travel, gas, equipment, energy, and most importantly, knowledge that the majortity cant get from just a regular person.
How much time they are willing to put in to improve their craft, their goals for baseball, what thier current skill is at the game right now, and what type of personality you need in a coach that would work best with your development
