Steve Graff, or better yes Graffie, has been giving my son lessons for just over a year now. My son was new to the game of baseball at age 8. Graffie took the time to understand how he learns, then worked with his learning style to teach him. For my kid it was not only explaining to him, but showing him how things work and why if your head/arm/hand is in different positions how things change. Graffie challenges my son, is patient with him, makes him laugh, and LOVES the game. My son loves Graffie so much, he chose his uniform number to be Graffie's number - 4. What better complement than to be your favorite baseball players number? We will continue to go to see Graffie for years to come!
