Baseball Nut

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.ZP

My playing career spanned from 1991-2013 on teams in Nevada playing with the Nevada Yankees summer ball club and in Portland Oregon playing with the Oregon Outlaws where we competed for & won a gold medal in the 2003 Oregon State Games. Later I moved to California and became a player/coach for the Nor Cal Pirates helping them win the 2009 Pacific West Baseball League Championship.

As a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association, and certified ACE baseballACE logo coach through USA Baseball, I feel that developing the correct technique and helping a player become better is always the goal. It is as important as instilling mental toughness & educating an athlete how to compete with th2007_Swinge 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.

abcaEducating 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.
