I’m a third year medical student and a former professional baseball player. I have had the luxury of learning and understanding sports through physically playing it and reading and studying about it.
I was fortunate enough to have worked with Nike, Under Armor and Adidas. I was part of their training programs as an athlete and later as a coach. My knowledge of athletic growth and development for athletes is second to none in the Los Angeles area.
In terms of Baseball, I have background knowledge, experience and Training with these famous hall of fame players:
1) I have had fielding training from Ozzie Smith
2) Catching instructions from Carl Nicols and Chris Bando, both former major league catchers for the Mets and Indians respectfully.
3) hitting instruction from Mike Scioscia and David Wright of the Mets.
I have been exposed to years of major league talent and coaching, and I am here to give all of this knowledge to the kids of our communities.
I have been coaching baseball for 10 years. I began coaching at the Babe Ruth level since 2008 For ages 13-15 year olds. During my tenure there, I took two teams to the Babe Ruth World Series in 2008 with the 13 year old all stars and 2013 with the 14 year old all stars. We finished 3rd in 2008, but we won the whole thing in 2013 as the best team in the country. That was the town of Westchester's first ever World Series appearance; after years of always losing to the cross town rivals, I was finally able to help them through that glass cieling. Every other year I have coached the All Star teams, we always end up in the regional finals and are always competitive against the best teams in the Pacific Southwest. My teams are always prepared physically and mentally.
I have also helped out coaching at West Los Angeles community college and my local high school, Westchester high school. I have worked closely with former Dodger coaches and MLB scouts and Managers such as Bob Grant, Hector Zamora, Carl Nichols, And Sal Bando to name a few. From 2008 to 2017, I was a player and coach at the highest levels of the game; college, minor leagues and "the show." I have been exposed to years of MLB experience and knowledge and now I can transfer that to all of my younger athletes who are trying to make it at the next level. I have over 10 former players who I have helped make a Division 1 college baseball program or help get drafted to the MLB. My techniques and knowledge help you prepare for the next level.
