Baseball and Softball have been a huge part of my and my family's lives. I was a three time all conference college player at Wayne State University as an infielder, and immediately after my playing career ended, I began coaching boys baseball. I coached federation through college ball summer leagues for 8 years. I coached approximately 30-35 players who played college baseball and 8 guys who were drafted by a Major League franchise.
I have two daughters, and when my oldest child was born I hung up my clipboard as a coach until my daughter's were old enough to play travel softball. I am currently in my 12th year coaching this wonderful game of softball. I've coached both of my daughters from 10U all the way through 18U, which included coaching 2 teams a year for 5 seasons. My oldest daughter just graduated from Hillsdale College as a 4-year starter on the softball team and my youngest daughter just finished her freshman year in the Big 10 as a full time starter for Rutgers University.
As a travel coach, I've been part of state champion teams, and was fortunate enough to win a 16U National Championship in 2017. I have worked with probably 40 girls who have, are, or will be playing softball in college. I believe in the fundamentals of the game and in playing softball the smart way. One of my goals is that kids who play for me can watch a game (softball or baseball) and truly understand the strategies and coaching decisions that go into making this the greatest game on earth.
