More About Coach Fernando

I played professional baseball for over 15 years and I have trained youth in my home country of DR and in my current home, Sarasota, FL. My focus is youth ages 8 and up but I can instruct at any level.

I played with Chicago White Sox professionally and was chosen to participate in the instructional league. I was also chosen to play in the All Star game. My batting average was .300. During my career playing professionally in Venezuela, I hit 12 homeruns in 20 games.
When playing with the White Sox, I played beside Carlos Lee when he was 3rd in the lineup and I was 4th. Also, followed Joe Crede in the batting lineup.

I played right field as well at center field most of the time before and after I became PRO baseball player with Chicago. I was moved from right field to the center field because my ability to play better defense and big increase in my speed which I accomplished through hard work and dedication. I understood that if you love what you do and train with someone like me who loves baseball and played it, you can only become better everyday and nothing else.

All athletes get a thorough evaluation and assessment to ensure a customized program designed to take their game to the next level. One to One or Group training coupled with a mentoring program give my clients the edge to make it to the big league. Sessions start with physical drills then specific skill training ending with mentoring on physical and mental fitness.

I look to maximize my client's strengths and minimize their weaknesses by observing the skills that are effortless and then we perfect them to ensure rapid progress.

Extreme Baseball Major League Fundamentals:

Specifically, hitting drills are broken down into several areas, including but not limited to, common load mistakes of baseball hitting mechanics, how to hit home run baseball drill, how to fix dropping back shoulder, how to fix pulling off the ball, how the MLB players keep their heads down, how to create a sure powerful swing, how to load for a blazing bat speed drill, how to stay inside the ball drill, how to maximize leg strength, and how to perfect hitting mechanics.

Other specialties; Baseball outfield drills; how to receive and throw as an outfielder, outfield footwork and fly ball drills. Baseball infield drills; infield series of posture and footwork, infield triangle drills, "Ozzie" Smith drill, double play feeds & pivots, and shortstop drills.

Client Reviews

Fernando is a great instructor, he watches your swing and personalizes drills that work for you. I ubered down from IMG Academy and he did not disappoint, worth every single penny of my time.

Coach Fernando is a exceptional coach. His level of professionalism.is only exceeded by his knowledge. From start to finish, he kept my 11 year old, focused, engaged, and by the end had completely broke down and reformed my son’s batting stance and improved his batting 100 percent. We drive 45 min each way fo meet with coach Fernando. It was worth every min and every cent. We will continue to train with him on a regular basis.

Coach Fernando is very professional and very knowledgeable. My son enjoys going to him and he is picking up in every aspect of his coaching. Thank you coach Fernando.

Coach Fernando is an amazing coach and my son is learning quite a lot from him!

Coach Fernando is an amazing coach. My son is extremely comfortable with him and says that he, "explains things in a way that make sense." We are beyond pleased with our son's sessions so far! We can see his confidence level rise after only one session. We would highly recommend this coach to anyone.

Coach Fernando is a passionate and dedicated baseball instructor. In just one session Coach Fernando has already made a huge impact on my son. From the moment we met Coach Fernando it was evident that he possessed an exceptional level of knowledge and expertise in the game of baseball. Coach Fernando recognized what my son needed help with and tailored his coaching approach to meet those needs. My son can not wait until his next session.

We were in town for Spring Break and wanted to brush up on baseball pre season. Coach Fernando was fantastic and my 12 year old son wished we had booked more sessions ahead of time as he was fairly full day off! Definitely recommend!

Coach was very communicative. Looking forward to working with him again!

Coach Fernando is doing a great job with My 15 year old son. Many coaches have tried to get my son to use his hips when swinging the bat but Coach Fernando explained it to him in such a way that we actually saw improvement. We Will definitely use Coach Fernando again When we are back In Florida!!

Fernando was great to work with. Very knowledgeable and professional. He was prompt and then spent extra time really helping my son with his technique. My son really got a lot out of. Fernando even took a video then played back in slow motion showing exactly where my son needs to adjust, good stuff. Would highly recommend Fernando to any player looking to take it to the next level.

Coach Fernando was awesome! He improved my son's swing to get a lot more power out of it. It was an incredibly productive session!

Coach Fernando was fantastic. He listened and connected well with my son. He provided insightful and effective adjustments. Super feedback and built confidence. Can’t wait until the next session.

Coach Fernando retooled my son’s stance and offered reinforcement and feedback during and after the session. It was a very productive first session and we look forward to more.

Coach Fernando has helped my son tremendously, both in his mechanics and approach to conditioning. Coach Fernando has demonstrated the importance of consistent practice and attention to detail. He creates individualized, tailored plans to meet the needs of the athlete. He explains each drill to my son, and the result he can expect with consistent execution. Coach Fernando has exceptional baseball and coaching acumen, an excellent choice for our son!

We are very happy with Coach Fernando. He takes his time to explain the changes that he feels my son needs to make. This was his first lesson but we are very happy.

Coach Fernando was very hands on and explained in detail the tweeks and minor adjustments to my son's swing. He worked with his existing swing to make him more powerful. He can't wait to continue to work with him.

Coach Fernando took my sons (12 and 10) for a hitting lesson at Extra Innings.
He started off from zero, with them hitting off a T to improve their stance. He was patient and explained so much to them- he broke the swing down into small steps and had them work through those steps until he was throwing them balls and they were hitting CORRECTLY and consistently.
We will absolutely be back!

Hands down to coach Fernando. My son is a different person since he started with coach Fernando. My son's swing now has great mechanics and completely different than before. Now he understand how to swing and the connections btween each steps. He had problems throwing the ball and Coach Fernando took care of that. My son is extremly happy with the results of traning with the coach. Me as a parent Im pleased with the work that Fernando is doing with my son. I highly recommend hi to whoever that wants to improve their skills or their kids skills. Thank you for the hard work and dedication coach.

After reading the reviews,we selected Coach Fernando hoping he would be able to help our high school aged grandson who was in a slump coming from a season where he had broken his nose twice while playing baseball.Coach Fernando listened patiently to our concerns and worked around his schedule to accommodate our needs. With help from Coach Fernando, by the middle of the summer,our grandson was playing in Perfect Game Tournaments. He was selected as an all tournament player from among 1200 or more players. Best of all he is regaining his confidence. We cannot say “Thank you”enough to Coach Fernando. We absolutely recommend this man as a mentor and a knowledgeable coach. He is worth every cent and the more than 100 mile round trip we make to see him. Hugo & Patty Ramos

Coach Fernando is extremely knowledgeable and his technique instruction is the most modern and research-based available. He is extremely detailed in his instruction with hitting mechanics, and he also keeps the sessions fast paced and fun for kids. He is patient and encouraging, and I fully recommend him for players of all levels.

Coach Fernando did an awesome job working with my son getting him ready for the summer. His coaching style and method of instruction made my son very comfortable and receptive to the lessons. I highly recommend Coach Fernando. .

Great experience with coach Fernando so far. Very persistent, encouraging and patient. My son is a little bit more confident due to the fact that coach Fernando is always stressing the fact that he CAN do it.

Great first session.... Matthew looking forward to what comes next!

Very great attitude and great guy!

Coach Fernando was great!!

Coach Fernando is an excellent coach, and I would recommend him to all families. I enjoyed watching Coach Fernando break down proper techniques, and he had my son fully engaged the entire time. Coach Fernando was patient, hardworking, and dedicated. I am going to continue to bring my son weekly to have sessions with him. Thank you for being a precise, dedicated coach!!

Coach Fernando is wonderful! My 16 year old son and I really like that he's knowledgeable and very patient! His positive energy and "Can Do" attitude is contagious! Can't wait to watch my son progress!

A++++ experience with coach Nando. My son had his first session and found it to be very helpful. Excellent coach/teacher highest recommendation.

Coach Fernando was exactly what my son needed. After 1 hour session it was evident that he knew what he was doing and was able to communicate with my son to get him to understand. Extreamly professional while having a ton of energy. My son is excited about hitting again and Fernando is his only hitting coach now.

What can I said coach fernando u are the best of the best coach thank you thank you. chris is so happy today was a great day for chris thank muchas gracias

We love working with Fernando. He’s incredibly patient and helpful, not to mention extremely talented! My son started baseball relatively late (age 11), and Fernando’s extra coaching has been invaluable. I can not recommend him highly enough.
Coach Nando is a great guy... Always going the extra step to encourage and mentor! We love you coach...
My neighbor Coach Nova was so kind to play catch with my grandson because he knew that he loved baseball but did not have a Dad to play with. Now my grandson is so excited to be part of a team next season and will be taking clinic lessons this summer. We all need neighbors like Nando Nova.
Nova has been working with my middle school aged son for about 3 months and I have noticed a great improvement...not only in his baseball skills but also in his attitude. Thank you Coach Nova!
Coach Nando changed my son's outlook on Baseball. He was timid and unsure he could play but he wanted to. Coach Nando has a way of making everyone feel important and instills a confidence through encouragement and kindness. He knows his stuff! My son has improved so much in the 6 months that he has trained with Nova Baseball Clinics. I would recommend Coach Nando to anyone looking to give their kid a chance to become a better all around baseball player!
