When you’re looking for a baseball/softball instructor for your child, what should you look for?
Many instructors will highlight their playing careers and say they were great players or they played at a high level of baseball. Playing experience is good and being an all-star caliber player is great, but many of these "instructors" lack the skills necessary to teach youth players the skills that they need to improve their game. All of My Batters Box instructors have played baseball. Some of our coaches have played at the college and professional level. But our coaches also have a combined 78+ years experience instructing youth baseball and softball players. In addition they have coached thousands of youth baseball and softball games at all age levels.
Years of Instructing
Coach Curtis 18+
Coach Steve 14+
Coach Tony 10+
Coach Ron 20+
Coach Taylor 3+
Coach CJ 2+
Coach Phillip 8+
Coach Sarah 3+
My Batters Box coaches offer high quality baseball and softball lessons. Our instructors can work with recreational players that are new to the game, select players, high school and college players that are looking to reach the next level of baseball. We’ve even had instructors work with professional baseball players. Regardless of the level, My Batters Box instructors will assess your players’ skills, listen to their goals, and then provide an age appropriate plan to improve their skills so they can reach their goals.
