I am a father, son, brother, coach, teacher, friends and kangaroo court judge.
I am a former MLB Player/Coach, Minor League Hitting Coordinator. As a player in professional baseball for 18yrs (10yr MLB)and a Major League/Minor League Hitting Coordinator/coach for 13yrs. I will have my opinions but I am willing to listen to others opinions as long as it is respectful and will listen to mine.
What I tell players I coach:
I will give you respect until you give me a reason not too.
I will treat you like a man
I will not yell at you
I will be here for you. So please be here for me.
On the way I look at things,
I believe that people and players are individuals. I am a person who is an optimist but also a realist. I am open minded but with direction and believes in continual learning in life.
On experience, I believe experience is the best teacher of knowledge and in the each one teach one philosophy.
“You can’t learn from experiences you don’t have.”- Yogi Berra
