As a public educator I have been involved in athletics for over 30 years. I have had the good fortune to coach players that were selected to All South Jersey and All State teams and players who went on to play college baseball at levels from Junior College to Division I programs and also a few that went on to play professional baseball. Others have gone on to serve in the military, become attorneys, businessmen, and still others have gone on to become teachers and coaches themselves.
I have coached at the college, high school, and youth team levels and trained student-athletes to help prepare them for success not only on the playing field, but also success in life and all of their future endeavors. Lessons learned while competing on the field translate well to skills needed for eventual success in the workplace and personal relationships.
I have loved Baseball for as long as I can remember. The green grass and warm sunshine, the smell of your glove, the crack (or ping!) of the bat, the anticipation of what will happen with the next pitch – nothing compares to Baseball. I believe Baseball, more than any other sport, teaches us how to perform under pressure. We learn how to handle adversity and failure. There is nowhere to hide when we throw the pitch, swing the bat, or try to field the ball – everyone immediately knows if we succeed or fail in our task. We must learn from our mistakes but also quickly forget they were made and move on to the next play or next pitch.
I feel blessed and am grateful for the opportunity to coach in the US Elite program. The US Elite ‘Uncommon Standards’ are what we all should value. Teamwork, dedication, work ethic, responsibility, respect, commitment, effort, and hustle are all qualities we desire for ourselves and those around us. Learning to play the game the right way translates into living your life the right way.
I look forward to working with our boys and helping them to become better players, better teammates, and better people.
My wife Amy and I live in Medford NJ with our three sons; Brad, Chase, and Blake.
