Fabio worked beautifully with our 11 year old son. His baseball instruction was excellent as was his approach and demeanor with a growing boy who considers him a trusted adult and baseball mentor.
My son has been training with Gil for 4 years. Gil has been instrumental in my sons development...not only his baseball skills, but also his confidence and approach to the game. Gil's training was instrumental in my son making the NCHS team. Gil is by far the best baseball instructor we have worked with. Not only he is extremely knowledgeable about all aspect of the game, but he brings and enthusiasm and excitement to his training that set him apart. He brings new and interesting drills to every session. He brings a positive attitude every time and he is always providing his students with a lift and boost to their confidence. His enthusiasm for baseball (and more importantly his enthusiasm for coaching & developing players) in unmatched. I recommend Gil highly!
Peter Cimino, aka Coach Pete, was my son's coach for his very first year of Little League. My son is eight years old. Coach Pete has an extensive understanding about every aspect of baseball. Better yet, he has the ability to teach such a complex game to young ball players in a fun, yet effective, manner. Coach Pete's love of the game is evident and we were thrilled with our son's skill development in just one season of play. Our son will definitely continue to play baseball and is certainly a fan for life.

I have been playing the game as long as I could remember. I love baseball. As someone who does have that love for the game, I also have a desire to see the game played correctly. I can not only teach the physical aspects of the game, but also the mental, which is the hardest part of the game.
I help baseball players of all levels with their skills in hitting. I work with individuals and teams and have over 20 years experience as a player, coach and trainer. I also offer mental toughness and sports confidence training classes for athletes of any sport at all levels. I have an MBA in Sports Wellness, and I teach personal health and physical education.
