More About Coach Joey

I am the varsity pitching coach for Lake View High School, where the past 2 years (2018-2019) we have won the City Championship. I have been training out of the Bradley Center where I also coach a 14U travel team. I work with a range of athletes from high school (14+), to college. I have a Bachelors degree in Sports and Fitness Management from Kentucky Wesleyan College.

I have played professional baseball in the Atlantic League, a MLB partnered league in 2021. From 2020-2021 I played in the Empire Professional League where I was named the starting pitcher in the 2021 All-Star Game. In college I have received an All-conference selection my senior year (2019). My college career I played at South Suburban College in South Holland, IL in 2017, and at Kentucky Wesleyan College from 2018-2019. My last year of college I had a 1.3 ERA with 29ks in 28 innings pitched, and 0 home runs given up. I have just started my professional career in 2020.

What I am offering are lessons for pitchers to help them develop better mechanics, increase throwing velocity, developing a second or third pitch, and help with finding a proper warmup, throwing, and recovery routine
We will also be using a pocket radar gun to gage velocity, and medicine balls and Driveline plyo balls to train with.
Along with physical development I will also teach mental development of pitch sequencing, having the right mindset, and knowing the role of a pitcher.
If requested we will work on hitting and fielding after we throw.
Upon arrival we will go through a proper warm-up routine. Throw, either long toss outside if weather permits, or a bullpen/flat ground where I give feedback as the athlete throws. And end with recovery work.
For 30 minute packages I expect the athlete to already be warmed up before the lesson starts, and we would work on 1-2 things that were asked to be worked on.

Client Reviews

Coach Joey did a great job with our 7yo who is learning coach-pitch. He was prepared with several drills perfectly suited to his skill level and diagnosed a few opportunities for improvement. Highly recommended.

Joey has been an excellent teacher for my ten year old. He quickly assesses problem areas and provides clear and concrete instructions on how to improve without ever overwhelming with too much information at once. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to take their pitching to the next level!

Coach Joey has a great approach, strong knowledge of the game and is able to relate to and apply for my nine year old. I highly recommend.

Booked a session for my son Robert to see how they would work together. I watched from afar as Joey kept Robert engaged and motivated for the full hour. After the session, Robert immediately told me that he wants to keep working with Joey. To me, it’s all about connecting with a coach and making sure your kid understands and buys in to a coaches approach. Joey hit the mark on both points. Just signed up for several more sessions. Looking forward to seeing the growth in my son.
