I am a lifelong baseball enthusiast.
I was a four year varsity baseball player at Prosser High School in Chicago (1982-1985) and earned various all-conference, all-city, and all-state honors as a shortstop and top hitter. My senior year at Prosser, I hit 3rd in the state (.585).
I was also an all-conference player at North Park University in Chicago (1986), where I hit 13 HRs as a Freshman. That's how I got onto the National Radar and served as an alternate on the United States Olympic Team (1986-1987) as a second baseman and went on to play in the Winter Pro League in Mexico for the Montreal Expos AA and California Angels AAA.
I continue to play competitive amateur baseball for national tournaments in Las Vegas, Arizona and Tampa, as well as, in various international venues like the Caribbean Winter World Series in Puerto Rico.
I continue to earn honors as a smooth fielding, sure-handed infielder that can produce hits on a consistent basis.
Since 2007, I have shared my baseball knowledge by training local little league, high school and college players, as a volunteer and through the area's top baseball training academies.
At VEGA BASEBALL, my primary focus is to TEACH young players how to develop their baseball skills, so they can succeed on the diamond on a consistent basis. Sharing my knowledge helps young players of all skill levels - Park District or Travel Team - enjoy the game a little more.
Through my own initiative, I have become the area's expert surrounding HS TRYOUTS and helped take the guesswork out of TRYOUTS for many parents and players.
Through my ongoing research and communication with HS & College Coaches, I have also been helping local families better understand the College Recruiting process, so they can play at the next level.
My baseball background, knowledge, patience and positive approach will provide local players, teams, coaches and parents with excellent baseball training and leadership for years to come.
