Eastside Baseball/softball Academy/EL1 Sports



Hello Athletes and parents. I have been working in baseball and softball coaching for 17 years full time.

I put the customer first buy being truthful what I believe they need at the time of the year and what the athlete is doing within the sport (offseason/ in season training). I think the mental side of the game is very important for growth and I work on lifting the kids to be confident and to learn and think about the game better than just the traditional lessons out there. Athletes need to learn the reasons why we are doing certain movements/ drills. It’s not about how times I can touch a ball. I value the game and it’s integrity so I work on teaching that to my athletes. I give them homework! Yes Homework kids :-) to work on at home. I keep constant contact with the athletes through the parents using video feedback to provide the extra service outside the training. I think parents learning with the kids is beneficial for everyone and it’s help build good relationships with my clients through the years.

I look forward to hearing from you!


The conversations, customer service, hearing about the success and failures. Yes failures, being able to work through them with the families and celebrate success is very rewarding.

    Frequently asked questions

    Fist meet the family and student and get there opinion on what’s going on and what’s their needs may be. 

    Then I’ll work a couple basic movements depending on what we are doing. Hitting, pitching, catching, infield, or outfield. I like to assess the athletes knowledge and motor skills and adjust from there. 

    There is a new system in place soon. TBD

    we will stay within the median price range of other facilities with our location.  

    I starting working at a facility and was asked because I was coaching at the time. Someone noticed my personality and asked me to join his business. 

    I have worked with boys and girls from 5 all the way up to professional athletes. 

    I am fond of the Cooperstown tournement. And though I have not gone yet I love the value and atmosphere they provide.  We leave in a week for New York to attend the you tournament.  

    Find the right coach/instructor with good people skills, can make the information relatable to you, and make you want to keep pushing yourself to be better and achieve your goals within your sport. 

    What are my strengths and weaknesses.  Those go a long way.  Also, what are realist goals that I can set to move towards. Bad speed, leg/core strength, confidence? Anything like those examples.
