As a professional baseball coach with the San Rafael Pacifics I have been apart of back-2-back winning seasons and helped coach the team to the 2014 and 2015 Pacific Association Championship.
My playing career spanned from 1997-2013 on teams in California, Nevada and Oregon-playing with the Nevada Yankees summer ball club. Early in my career I moved to Portland and played with the Oregon Outlaws where we competed for & won a gold medal in the 2003 Oregon State Games. Later I became a player/coach for the Nor Cal Pirates and helped win the 2009 Pacific West Baseball League Championship.
Building the mental toughness to become a champion is a gift. Teaching the aspects of the game that help get you there is a talent. I will always coach athletes to compete with the motivation to win. Baseball is more than just a game, it is a part of life. Baseball is America’s heart & soul, for generations, throughout communities and families across America. It’s the crack of the bat, the smell of the grass, the pop of the glove, the sound of the dirt beneath your feet. It’s the strategy of when to make a change, or put on play. It’s being apart of a team, believing in the same goal and being apart of a game that is more than a century old.
Educating young players about how to play smart baseball is vital to the sustainability of the sport. Passing on baseball knowledge to the next generation of baseball players brings a great deal of satisfaction to me. I enjoy helping young men understand the game of baseball and become better people through hard work, trust and accountability. Helping young players improve their skills and realize their potential is key to their future success.
