I believe this site will educate players, coaches, and parents with never seen before baseball drills, playing techniques, and coaching methods that will inspire the best baseball and sport experiences. There is something for everyone here – from beginner players to professional players and for rookie coaches to professional ones, as well as for parents of ball players.”

“I am passionate about sharing insightful baseball and positive parenting-in-sports advice. I’ve ‘been there’ and ‘done that’, and therefore believe I can make a valid contribution to today’s sport, and to the people, who will advance the sport tomorrow,” he adds.
The site’s content is engaging and visual. In fact, a new infographic has recently been added which quickly became a viral web hit.
