I do what I do because of my love for the game. I get excited when I am a part of a player's progression from being an average player to a GREAT one. I do my best to keep my lessons affordable. I am the oldest of 4 kids, and with that many mouths to feed, my parents would not have been able to afford what many instructors charge today. Without affordable pitching & hitting lessons from local coaches, I would not have progressed from city league into travel ball, which helped me get a scholarship, which helped to pay for an education at a private university that I would not otherwise have been able to afford. It's amazing what an impact just one coach can have on a kid's life! :)
I give pitching lessons in Northern California to pitchers of all ages. I grew up in Burlingame, CA and played for the West Bay Nuggets since the start of the organization. I led the Nuggets to the ASA Nationals for 5 consecutive years, placing second, third, fourth, fifth and 13th. While attending high school at Sacred Heart Preparatory in Atherton, I was a four-year MVP, was selected to the Cal-Hi Magazine All-State squad twice, and led the team to three league championships. After high school, I attended UC Berkeley and was a member of the 2002 National Championship and 2003 World Series Runner-Up teams. I carried a 1.06 ERA on my freshman year and started my collegiate career with 32 consecutive scoreless innings before giving up my first-earned run. One of my collegiate highlights includes throwing a perfect game against Illinois on February 24, 2002. From 2007 to 2011, I was an assistant coach at California State University, East Bay. I worked primarily with the pitchers and helped them reach their maximum potential for success. Becoming a top pitcher takes not only skill, but hard work and determination. Softball is a difficult and complicated game, but even more challenging than the game itself is the art of pitching. I believe pitchers need guidance from a young age to help develop the intricate skill of pitching. It is my sincerest hope to walk kids and young adults through each step, from becoming a beginning pitcher to an advanced pitcher. It is absolutely imperative that young pitchers learn the proper fundamentals early on. They must use that foundation to later build their skill. I can coach you through the successes and the failures and guide you to great success. In my opinion, you should choose a pitching coach who not only believes in you, but has the heart and personal dedication necessary to guide you through your pitching career. If you can put in the time, I can and will accelerate your game and success.
