More About Coach Richard

I have been doing private hitting lessons out of my garage (batting cage built in there) for last 15 years. I coached at the high school level for 3 years at Thayer Academy in Braintree, Ma. I coached for 5 years at the youth level for 10 year old AAU South Shore Seadogs out of Hingham Ma. I coached 1 year for the Bay State Games, which is a showcase week long tournament for high school Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors for colleges. I also coached Freshman soccer at Thayer Academy and Braintree High School.

I played baseball at Chipola Junior College in Florida. I then went on the play 3 years in the minors with the San Diego Padres before leaving to enlist in the Marine Corp. I then played 20 years for the Braintree White Sox Stan Musial level. I still play today in a 48 and over league.

A lot of the hitting issues happen before we swing. So we start with a healthy and balanced stance. Next we attack the load and stride making sure there are no issues with the stride foot and any negative hitches with their handstand elbow. Lastly we look at the swing and finish.

Session with coach Richard Great. Really worked on mechanics and technical skills. My daughter said she has already learned so much. She is looking forward to next lesson!

This was a great session. My son came in with an open mind and Coach Rich helped him with his footwork, loading up, upper body and lower body. By the end of the hour my son's swing looked much more like it should look. We are anxious to get to another session. Coach also gave my son drills to do that he can do on his own that support the swing. I recommend Coach Rich if your player is looking to learn the basics and develop a stronger swing.

Just had our first batting lesson for my 12-year-old son with Coach Richard. He did a great job. He was able to analyze my sons batting stance and start to make corrections for the better. Looking forward to the next lesson.

Coach Rich was wonderful with my 9 year old son! He was able to immediately identify areas for improvement on my son's swing and communicate effective ways to get him to understand what needs to be worked on! My son loved it and asked me when we can go back! We will be booking him again and I highly recommend!

My son just had his 1st lesson with Coach Richard and we could not have been happier. Coach Richard was very knowledgeable about hitting and was able to explain each step of the process of hitting in very clear and easy to understand terms for my son. It was a very helpful demonstrative lesson and my son is eager to to go back. I would highly recommend Coach Richard.

My son just completed his first session with Coach Rich and he loved it! I couldn't have been more satisfied with the level of instruction my son received and the attention to detail Coach Rich, in just one hour, already instilled in my son. Coach Rich is a true professional and I was amazed at his knowledge and level of expertise in the art of hitting!! Coach Rich has a great demeanor and was great with my son. As soon as we got in the car my son asked when his next lesson was? When we got home my son began working on the drills Coach Rich had taught him. I will definitely be signing him up for more lessons!

Very easy to get along and he understands the player very good by finding the weaknesses and strengths. Puts a good amount of detail on the form and the swing of the bat.

Thank you so much for a great 1st session,
Chris was very excited when we left saying he was so glad he learned some new tips to improve his hitting.

I would recommend coach Rich he really took the time to explain every step of the improvements he was giving us and why they were important. I can't wait to see the difference in his next practice.

Coach established a great working relationship with my kid. He can't wait for the next session and left the session with the confidence that his batting technique will improve and the hits will return again by putting in the required work.

Rich figured out what my son was doing wrong mechanically in less than 5 minutes. Would definitely recommend him as a hitting coach.

Coach Richard has done a great job working with my 11 year old son. He breaks down the proper "hitters swing" into engaging and easily followed instructions and drills. The results of his training can be measured at the plate as he's truly helped my son become a better hitter. In fact, his improved hitting has allowed him to move from the bottom of the lineup into the heart of the lineup. This is the exact result we were looking for when we initially went to Coach Richard.

Coach Richard is an amazing coach. His attention to detail is incredible and his instruction is very specific while also being very clear. He helps push athletes to the best of their abilities and also does a great job working on the mental aspect. Could not ask for a better coach.
