More About Coach Lamar

Former hitting coach for the Milwaukee Brewers, Kansas City Royals, Seattle Mariners, and most recently, New York Mets. I work with players of all ages and specialize in the development of hitting fundamentals.

I am a former pro baseball player who played from 1974 to 1982 as first baseman for Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers. During my time as a hitting coach for the Mets farm system, I produced enough talent that in April of 2011, the team fielded a starting lineup of 100% homegrown players for the first time since 1971.

A typical session will include evaluation of the players current skill level and workouts/drills to improve skills until great technical ability comes naturally to the player when they are on the ball field.

Coach Lamar was beyond great. Within minutes he located issues with my sons stance. This alone had my son gain extreme confidence and made him eager to want to improve. I also as a parent learned a ton in such short time. I would highly recommend Coach Lamar to anyone who is serious about improving and taking their game to the next level!

Coach Lamar was fantastic. Quickly honed I’m on what my son needed to work on and gave clear simple instruction. Worked with him until he got it. Very positive and encouraging. My son left feeling much more confident in his swing. We will be back

Coach Lamar knows exactly what to look for when helping an athlete with hitting. He is very patient and knowledgeable. I took my teenage son for a tune up lesson and within a few minutes Coach Lamar had him hitting balanced, short to the ball and with power. He talks the athlete through various drills and communicates the proper technique with ease. My son enjoyed the session and we’ll definitely be working with Coach Lamar in the future!

Had a great first session with Coach Lamar. Coach took time to analyze my grandson's stance, base, swing and explain how he would proceed to build him into a power hitter. He took his time and was very positive through out the session. We are very pleased and plan to continue until my grandson becomes the hitter he wants to be. Thank you Coach!

First meet went great. My brother liked him and we hope this is just the beginning on a new journey.

Coach Lamar has done a fantastic job helping my 16 year old get his swing back after time out of the game from injury. He is patient, kind, and imparts his knowledge in a way that is easily understood by my son. My son has dramatically improved under his coaching and we are going to continue with Coach Lamar to keep his skills up in the off season. Highly recommend!

After just one session with Coach Lamar, my son took away great adjustments to help his batting. Looking forward to more sessions with Coach.

Coach Lamar was great with my son. After one session he was able to get my son to do some things that surprised me. I believe with more sessions, my son will be better.

Coach Lamar is far and away the best hitting instructor we have found. The improvements in my son’s swing translates to a much better batting experience in his practices and games. He is patient, kind, and informative while taking the time to explain things in ways my player can make actionable. He is hard to beat and will be our guide for all things batting as long as my son continues to play. Thanks, Coach! You are simply the best.

Excellent coach and was very patient with my son. Gave me some tips of things to work on at home so we’d be better prepared our next visit. Thanks coach!

Awesome batting coach and would recommend Coach Lamar! We’ve been looking for a batting Coach and have tried various batting coaches through dbat and it never felt personable to what we were needing. Coach Lamar really knows his stuff and with just one practice so far, has made adjustments to my sons form that no one else thought to change. Looking forward to the fall season as we have finally found a permanent batting coach!

Coach Lamar has been fantastic with my son and he has such a wealth of baseball knowledge. He’s really helping him build the right foundations of a great swing!

Lamar is also good at instructing kids by observing error motion and helping my boy adjust quickly and accurate.

First session was amazing Coach Lamar is wonderful my son took to him very well listened and did what he needs to do we are looking forward for our next session

Coach Lamar was amazing with our 10 year old son. He coached him the entire lesson and gave constant feedback. We would highly recommend him to anyone.

Coach Lamar is top-notch. Just a few lessons and my son's swing has gotten back on track. He is patient, thorough, and encouraging...and has an incredibly keen ability to isolate exactly what needs to be corrected. Thank you for YOUR gifts as a coach!

Highly recommended- not only is Lamar skilled at what he does- he cares about the kids and their development. My son looks forward to his next session right when the current session ends. Lamar is magnificent and we look forward to the change he will do in regards to my sons technique and development.

My son had his first lesson with Lamar last night. Words cannot describe how pleased I am with it. My son is 13 and has always had a very sluggish ugly swing, within just the first few minutes of the lesson he tweaked him and he started swinging the bat twice as fast…by the time the lesson was over it didn’t even look like the same kid…Definitely worth every penny and the drive, I live over an hour away but it doesn’t matter, my son will for sure be a regular with him. THANK YOU COACH JOHNSON!

We have had 2 lessons with Coach and they have been great. He is professional and respect the tips and changes he is giving our son. Our son also has enjoyed learning from him. We plan to continue our lessons. Thanks Coach!

Coach was very patient and easy to work with. In just 30 minutes he had my sons footwork changed and making a huge difference in his swing.

Coach Lamar is amazing. Immediately after finishing the session my son said, "Coach Lamar is legit!". After just one session he diagnosed a problem in my son's swing and we're well on our way to fixing it. Thank you Coach!

Coach Lamar is very knowledgeable of hitting and all aspects of baseball. He is very personable and makes the workout fun for my 7 year old. I would highly recommend.

Coach Lamar was great with my 9 year old son. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable. My son enjoyed the time they spent together and asked to meet with him again!

Coach was a great help to my son for baseball. We plan on using him again and we are very excited to watch my son improve. He was very patient and encouraging. I highly recommend him!

Amazing initial lesson with Coach Lamar! You can tell he really cared about improving my son’s hitting! We will definitely be booking more lessons with Coach Lamar!

Coach Lamar is intelligent, observant and has the patience of a saint. In just one 30 minute session he has already impacted my son in such a positive way, giving him confidence back. We can’t wait for the next session, and are so grateful to have met this coach.

Coach Lamar helped my son with excellent techniques to improve his hitting, as well as more confidence at the plate.You can't to beat 1-on-1 instruction!

Coach Lamar was great he was very understanding when we had car trouble and where late to our training he was so awesome with my son very patient, kind and encouraging my son learned quit a bit In just one lesson and is having fun learning I highly recommend coach Lamar we will be continuing to do training with coach Lamar!

We had a great experience with coach Lamar. He is professional, great with young baseball players, and my son improved his skills very quickly. I highly recommend this coach!

Coach Lamar is currently helping my son tweak his swing and get back on track with hitting. He explains the hitting process in a way that my son is able to immediately understand and put it into play. Coach Lamar not only goes over the mechanics of baseball but also the mental aspect of the game.
