What’s your role at Home Field Instruction?
I am primarily a hitting and pitching instructor at Home Field. I have managed baseball and softball teams in every age group from t-ball through 17U, and every skill level from recreational leagues to national championships.
My approach to coaching is based on trust, knowledge, communication, practice and confidence.
In order to earn a player’s TRUST I must demonstrate my KNOWLEDGE and my ability to COMMUNICATE what I know in a way they can understand.
With trust established, we can use collaborative and effective PRACTICE to translate the knowledge of what to do into the ability to make it happen, and making it happen fosters CONFIDENCE. Since confidence is the foundation of success...let’s make it happen!
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
Over the past 21 years, I have coached wrestling, football, baseball and fast-pitch softball while raising four wonderful kids. When I’m not coaching, I enjoy the outdoors through fishing, hunting, hiking, and bird-watching.
