Best Thing about instructing?

“When a kid does the small things right and you know you helped them it makes you feel good. I also like when I give the kid the opportunity to feel like a professional when he steps into the box, on to the mound, or onto the field.”

Specialty Areas:

Hitting, infield work, catchers

Mentor:

“My mentors are Mark Mortimer and Jack Stewart. These are two guys I played summer showcase ball for when I was in high school with the Elite Complex’s BigStix Baseball program. They helped me get into college and play baseball at the next level. They have also helped me become a great teacher and coach when it comes to the game I love.”
