I started playing baseball in June of 2017 at 44 years of age. I last played in the summer of 1997. I played organized baseball for 20 years from age 5 through age 25. Stepping back onto the field for the first time re awoke the same feelings when I was 5 stepping into my first tryout. With this background, I share tips and ideas that I discover on my return to baseball. Along the way I coached girls softball teams at the recreation league, travel, and tournament ball levels. I look at the world from a perspective of what is good for me but also what may prove useful to young aspiring players and those returning for the love and joy of the game.
Thank you for visiting and sharing in the wonderful game of baseball!
