"Rich has done an outstanding job teaching my 12-year old son Jacob solid pitching mechanics that have transformed him into a solid pitcher. Jacob's overall confidence has soared since he began training with Rich. Real Major League Training at its best! "
Keith Bridges, Ventura, CA
"Rich is one of those rare people who is able to do something at very high level of excellence and is also an excellent teacher. He has done an amazing job breaking down the throwing mechanics into simple drills that my 7 year old can understand and implement. The most impressive thing is how quickly we saw results. During his first 30 minute lesson my son's consistency and accuracy improved dramatically and he has continued to improve from there. Playing SS he threw four kids at first base during a game just the other day (which is a rarity in his division). Thanks Coach Rich!"
Jeff Price, Thousand Oaks, CA
"My 11 year old son Alex has received a lot of instruction for the past 5 years, but Rich was able to instantly fix some very bad habits that he had developed. Rich was clear, motivational and very supportive. I am one of the coaches on my son's baseball team and was so impressed with Rich's techniques that I signed up for lessons myself. Not only have my lessons helped with Alex's continued improvement, but I have been able to explain to Alex's teammates the correct way to safely and effectively throw a baseball. Thanks, Rich!!!"

"We came to Rich about a year ago with little mound experience and wanting to become a pitcher. After Rich reconstructed my approach and mechanics (physical and mental) I feel very confident on the mound and have moved into the position as one of my teams primary pitching options - both in rec league and travel ball. I love my sessions with Rich and always have a good time - my Dad likes it because I actually learn something. With the proper mechanics I've learned from Rich I can easily throw 4 or 5 innings in a game and not have any soreness in my arm the next day - I'm always ready to go! Rich rocks!"

"Rich has been coaching my 13 year old son for the past 18 months. Working with Rich enabled my son to develop solid pitching mechanics and the great foundation to become a high school pitcher. Said differently, my son now throws gas and has a nasty breaking-ball. In addition to the physical improvement, Rich has been a great influence on my son's character while on the mound."

"He made me the pitcher that I wanted to be and gave me ways to achieve that!"
Isaac Horigan, Buena HS Pitcher/ MVP Channel League/ MVP Ventura County
"As a parent, we have wanted our son to be competitive as a pitcher but also, learn to pitch in ways that would not ultimately hurt his arm by learning them too young. Rich has taught Jack to become better at the pitches that are age appropriate while maintaining the competitive edge. We have always trusted Rich's judgment and wisdom as he brings Jack along -- as Rich always-- has Jack's best interest at heart. Jack regards Rich as not only a mentor but also as a friend."
