Baseball Pitching Coach


"I live for the game of baseball

and how it should be played and taught appropriately!” 


My goals of teaching baseball are to make better players and to teach what it takes to advance to the next level.  I am not a ‘there is only one way to learn’ kind of coach.  I take what strengths the players have and make them better and keep them safer from injuries.  I love answering questions about the game.


I have been honored and privileged to play with some of the most outstanding coaches, teammates, and athletes in the Industry – some of whom are still playing the game now like Ryan Ludwick CIN; Mark Kotsay ATL; Matt Williams San Francisco; Mel Stottlemyre SR, JR NYY;  Mike Neu Oakland, California; and Nate Yeskie Oregon State University Beavers.   

I am excited about this opportunity

and would enjoy the chance to make you

a better player

of the best game on the planet!
