More About Coach Brandon

I have coached and trained baseball players for 14+ years. I have coached at baseball camps (Magdaleno School of Baseball), baseball clinics (Hit 4 Power), and have also done one-on-one lessons. The age groups that I have worked with in the past have been from ages 6-17. I am a current Personal Trainer (Phase 1 & Phase 2)

Selwyn Brandon Fate Young a native of Los Angeles CA, had an excellent college baseball career. He played shortstop for his dad at L.A. City College and was named All Conference and made the California Community College All Star Game after hitting .315. He transferred to Benedict, again playing for his dad, and ended his college career with a .345 batting average, stealing 45 out of 54 bases and having 82 RBIs and finishing his Benedict career in the All Time Benedict top ten, with 115 hits. Young was named Benedict's Defensive Player of the Year for 2010 and 2011. He was also named First Team Pre-Season All NCAA South Region, Palmetto All State Team and First Team ALL SIAC. In addition, Young was named SIAC East Player of the week, February 22, 2011.batted .345 with two HR and 40 RBI in 52 games as a junior. The 5-11 second baseman/shortstop batted .349 with 41 RBI in 43 games, earning All-SIAC first team honors. He was a part of a Benedict College program that led all NCAA baseball in stolen bases as a team over the last three seasons. Young had 45 stolen bases in 54 attempts over the last two seasons. Former Benedict College player Selwyn Brandon Fate Young signed his first of five professional baseball contracts with the Newark Bears of the CanAm League in 2011 for his first experience in professional baseball shortly after graduating from college. He played for former MLB Star Tim Raines on the Newark Bears in the Can Am Professional Baseball League. He then signed in 2012 with the Yuma Scorpions in the Northwest Professional Baseball league, playing for MLB Star Gary Templeton. In 2012, Young spent a brief stint with the Hawaii Stars also with the Northwest Pro League. Young joined the USA Military All Stars on the red white and blue tour June 2013 after spending two weeks playing for his dad on the Conway Cadets in the Beach Collegiate Baseball League. The Former Benedict College baseball standout Brandon Young then signed his fourth contract to play with the Trinidad Triggers an independent team in the Pecos League.
"He is a multi-dimensional player, with great hands, excellent speed, and a terrific bat," Triggers Manager, JD Droddy, said, referring to Young. "We are expecting him to make a great contribution to the 2014 Triggers." In 2015 Young signed with the water town bucks of the empire pro league where he led his team in batting average hitting 364 in 136 at bats only struck out 4 times landing him the second spot on the league leader board for average, He was also chosen to be the short stop of the Allstar team.

My 15 year old grandson had his first coaching session with Coach Brandon after not playing baseball for approximately 8 years. After completing his session I asked him what he thought about his training. He informed me that he was honored to have him as his coach. He is so talented and gifted with his training techniques and skills that he left feeling so positive and confident about himself.. I was also at the training and observed how Coach Brandon interacted with my grandson. I was extremely impressed with his performance. He’s definitely a PROFESSIONAL Baseball coach that’s pleasant, humble, courteous, and determined to makes his students the “Best Of The Best” Thanks Coach Brandon we’re looking forward to seeing you this Saturday.

My son had nothing but positive feedback from his session with Brandon. He immediately saw how to fix his swing, and we saw the results in a game he played the very next day.

I did extent research of finding the right trainer for our son.
Our son is 7 years old and something traumatic had happened to him during a baseball tournament last October. It was to a point where our son didn’t want to play baseball anymore, but knew the passion for the sport is still there.
I reached out to Coach B and I sent him videos of our son’s incident that included him pitching. He watched the video and he was able to tell us right away what our son was doing wrong.
Our first meet with Coach B he automatically noticed our son’s form with batting, pitching, etc.
Every session he has had with Coach B our son has been improving a lot! After His first 2 sessions with Coach B our son was pitching again without feeling forced!
We have had 3 sessions with Coach B and will continue getting more training from him throughout the year!
I can say our son has corrected his form and has gotten rid of the bad habits and working on continuing with the good habits, he has built strength, confidence & he enjoys getting trained by Coach B!
If you are looking for someone who is very patient and can point out right away what your child is doing wrong with their forms, hit, bat, catch, etc. he is the man to go to!

Coach Brandon was great in assisting my son with his swing and timing. My son is looking forward to working with him to prepare for next season.

Coach Brandon is awesome! He was able to keep the attention of my 7 year old son and make it fun! My son can't wait to go back!

Coach Brandon has been a great to work with.he explained everything to my son to make it easy for him to make his adjustments .my son just played and I can already see the improvements. I would recommend to my friends and my son's teammates that need quality batting lessons.

Coach Brandon kept my son energized and focused the whole time. He was hitting and catching by the end of session one!

Brandon is an excellent coach! He immediately 'diagnosed' what was wrong with my son's swing. He even gave him homework. Brandon is knowledgeable and patient. We look forward to future sessions with him.

Brandon was awesome. He helped my son tremendously and kept it fun. Highly recommend!

Great session.... able to see real progress quickly, and with a positive coaching attitude. Highly recommend!

My 6-year old son had a great experience with Brandon. He didn't want the session to end. Brandon makes the experience fun for kids while still learning the necessary mechanics of baseball. We'll definitely be booking more sessions. Highly recommend him.

Great experience with Coach Brandon.
He was able to identify simple adjustments with my 14 yr. old son. And I seen a immediate difference in his swing & contact. Best of all my son really enjoyed it and felt more confident on his swing. Thanks Brandon 👍🏼

Excellent teacher. He was very positive in his instruction and was able to identify struggles with my child's pitching motion and immediately correct them. Highly recommend him.

My son finished his first session and immediately asked when he could train with him again.
He learned proper pitching and batting and can't wait to continue learning from Coach Brandon. I highly recommend working with him.

Great coach... thoroughly explained his training methods. Very patient with my son and he likes his style!!! Thanks, Brandon!

Brandon is an incredible coach. He's patient, friendly, technical and provides a fun experience. My son was all smiles during the session. He is 10 in a 10-12 league. He had trouble adjusting the speed of the pitching and was batting .000 in his first game. After 2 sessions with Brandon my son saw improvement. In the last 2 games he went 3 of 4 with two walks. 5 RBI's a single, double and a triple.

I highly recommend working with him. His adjustments Tommy sons swing were effective and built up his confidence.

Brandon is an incredibly dedicated coach with great skill and fantastic teaching technique. My son is a D1 college recruit and Brandon was able work with him on hitting and fielding. In addition to his skills as a baseball coach, he brings a great amount of positivity. I couldn't reccomend a better man/coach

Coach Brandon is very knowledgeable, what makes him exceptional is how he explained everything to my son. Coach made my son feel at ease. We can see how my son is inspired now to learn more & to do his best. As soon, as we walked away from our 1st session, my son asked when was his next.

My son had a great time working with Coach Brandon. He made learning a new sport fun and had lots of tips for him and myself.

Brandon was great with my kids! He was calm and patient, and was also able to make it fun for them!

Coach Brandon was Awesome!!! Within 10 minutes, he was able to diagnose my 8 year old son's hitting flaws. He helped refine his swing for efficiency and corrected his stance and hitting motion. After our coaching session, we went out to the park and my son was easily hitting the ball 5-10ft further and with much more ease. My son enjoyed the lesson and Coach Brandon was very friendly and encouraging. We have already made plans to have future lessons with Coach Brandon and look forward to working on fielding and other aspects of the game. Coach Brandon has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the game and we look forward to absorbing as much as we can.

Coach Brandon is fantastic! He has helped my 9 year old son learn some great techniques, improve his skills and gain confidence in baseball. We are happy with the results!

Coach Brandon is training my 7 year old son. He is really great with kids, has a great attitude, and a wealth of baseball knowledge and experience.

Great training session, will definitely signup for another!

After just one lesson, Coach Brandon helped my 10 year old son refine both his pitching and fielding skills. Brandon was patient, kind, fun and inspirational. Last week my son was struggling to pitch a strike. Today, after working with Brandon, his confidence greatly improved, he pitched stronger and in the strike zone! Brandon's expertise in baseball translates into a great learning experience. My son can't wait to work with Brandon again as he trains for fall ball !!

1 practice and I can already see a difference in throwing and his approach to the game entirely. Coach Brandon has him doing some condition drills as well, which he seems to have embraced.

Excellent coach. Fixed a big issue with my swing on the first lesson.

Coach Brandon is an amazing coach. He knows what he is talking about and can help with every aspect of the game. I would highly suggest him.

Coach Brandon was great. I was trying out for my baseball team in a couple of weeks and we got a few sessions in before then. He was super flexible and available. We worked on most aspects of baseball including, hitting, fielding, and throwing. I improved significantly. He has his own training aids and baseballs, which we used during our sessions. Try him out.

Brandon is an awesome private coach. My son was having difficulty hitting, with the techniques he taught him immediately we saw a difference not only on the field but off. Brandon is a best kept secret, if you've looking for private baseball coach for your child he's the one.

All the glowing the reviews were right on the money -- Brandon was awesome. Incredibly patient and encouraging, in just the first session he was able to correct my son's swing and even gave him some valuable fielding pointers. We're looking forward to the next time we can work with him.

Coach Brandon is great. We've had two lessons now, and my eight-year-old son Parker is loving it and has already picked up so many positive nuances to his fundamentals. Looking forward to more sessions!!

Coach Brandon was great! He covered all different baseball skills during the session, and gave my son great pointers on improving his performance.

My two sons, 7 and 4, have been working with Brandon for the past month. Brandon is an amazing coach. He modifies his approach to ensure he is appropriately coaching my sons based on their age and skill level. Brandon uses our hour time slot very efficiently and alway makes sure we spend time on catching, throwing and hitting, my three areas of concern at this level. Brandon is careful not to contradict what my sons are leaning from their team coaches. Rather, he listens to what my kids have leaned elsewhere and explains the value in that particular instruction. Brandon is extremely patient. His knowledge and skills are undeniable. My oldest son went from 0 experience to stating at first base and hitting a home run his first game. He couldn't wait to share his achievements with Brandon.

Brandon's administrative skills are just as impressive as his coaching skills. His initial response was thorough and proactive. Brandon created a package specific to our needs. Brandon arranged payment and sent out calendar invites after each request. After each practice, he followed up with his feedback so we know what to work on during the week.

Excellent instructor. Very patient and took his time to explain the fundamentals. Was able to identify key mistakes in my stride, weight shift and hand positions. Completely rebuilt my swing and had me raking shots off the wall by the end of the lesson. Highly recommended.

I didn't hesitate giving five start for coach Brandon. He is highly professional and passionate baseball coach. He also has good talent making kid have practice fun and exciting. My son loves his coaching and has been improved a lot for baseball. :)

Brandon is a great teacher and very patient.

Brandon is a fantastic coach, intuitive, smart, responsible and professional. He really helped my son move out of a "hitting slump", back into the powerful hitter that he is. He not only worked on my sons hitting technique, but on the mental aspects of the game. My son and I highly recommend Brandon.
