My goals are to teach my players the intricacies of all aspects of the game of baseball, not only the physical game but more importantly the mental game. The game within the game ( pitching ). To impart life learned wisdom to my students/athletes. To explain, its not about the 3 hits in 10 ABs but how you handle the 7 outs you made. I LOVE TO TEACH THE GAME I LOVE.

I would love to cover any aspect of baseball, offense, defense base running. but my first love has always been pitching. I love the game within the game. I will cover all aspects of pitching. Teaching the younger players how to throw a change up. Most of all I will listen to the players and work on whatever they deem necessary. As the lessons go on I will give my opinion on what I think needs work.
As my resume shows I have years of experience in baseball and would love to share my knowledge of the game. When we meet you can ask me about my playing experience.
Last I would be happy to come to you for lessons in the west valley of the Phoenix area
