Coaching Philosophy/ Specialties

I believe hitting a baseball is one of the most difficult things in all of sports. As a 3 sport athlete and competitor I fell in love with that challenge.  I also believe that any athlete can become a good hitter with hard work and attention to detail. Being a good hitter is not entirely dependent on size and strength. Baseball is unlike other sports where the biggest or the strongest or the fastest or the tallest are advantaged.  Good hitters come in all shapes and sizes. Work ethic is big. Find a way to love the grind. Attention to detail in quality repetition will be essential. These factors can broaden the gap between gifted and great! 

 

I have had the chance to hit with and work with all ages of hitters ranging from as young as 4 years old, to college players. I structure lessons appropriately based on the age and current abilities. My energy as a coach comes from my own love for the game and love for working with athletes.  I am grateful for any chance I get to work with hitters and to share my knowledge of hitting. My hope is that I can help others to enjoy the great game of baseball as much as I do and find success for themselves both on and off the field.
