Q: How much does a private pitching lesson cost?
A: The standard private pitching lesson is 45 minutes and cost $60. Please contact me personally for group rates or if you are interested in sessions over one hour.
Q: When can we schedule a private pitching lesson?
A: I am available every Saturday and Sunday (unless I take off for some exotic land for the weekend). Hurry up and schedule your private pitching lesson before I'm all booked up!
Q: Where are the private pitching lessons located?
A: Moscone Recreation Fields (Marina) are open to the public and our private pitching lesson can take place on any patch of grass. I am also taking on clients in the East Bay and as of now I can dedicate a day to schedule lessons at the Montclair Baseball/Softball Fields in the Upper Montclair district of Oakland.
Q: What is included in a private pitching lesson?
A: I was the never the stand-out prospect. I had to work my tail off in high school, college, and the professional levels to make an impact. I know what it takes to make dreams a reality, playing in the San Francisco Giants organization was the apex of my playing career.
From a very young age I was taught the correct physiological mechanics that laid the foundation for a healthy arm throughout my career. I never had any arm issues and understand how to put the body the in right position for maximal output with being injury preventative. I went from 85MPH in high school to 94MPH in the minor leagues. Many people talk about hard work and sacrifice, but I truly lived it. Born without the gift of the million-dollar arm, I had to outwork and be more dedicated than all my peers to make it to the professional level.
I provide warmup routines, mechanical drills, strength suggestions, and mental toughness for each pitcher. I also touch on health & nutrition for maximum performance.
Q: What is your experience?
A: I was fortunate enough to play at a very high level throughout my career and was awarded with leadership and performance awards along the way. I was also mentored by the very best coaches along the way. I believe that not one specific coach has all the right answers, rather a player must absorb and understand all coaching techniques theories and figure out for themselves the correct combination and what works best. Whether it'd be mental (80% of the game is between the ears!), physical, or a combination of both, I was lucky enough to have some very bright brains and outstanding men in the game of baseball tutor me throughout my career.
