The highlight of my offseason is working with Rick to refine my swing and make sure it is efficient. I have seen firsthand the impact he can have on a player’s career.

After having a very successful Spring Training applying what Rick taught me, I was promoted to AA. I am now among the league and organizational leaders in 2nd round by the Mets and struggled my first two professional seasons in low A and high A. I was introduced to Rick and we spent the offseason together in 2013.

The Pirates program and Coach Strickland were instrumental in preparing me for baseball at the next level. I would certainly recommend that any player with aspirations of playing collegiate or professional baseball turn to them for the same guidance and instruction they provided me – it is a partnership I could not have done without.

I Would Tell Anyone with Aspirations to Play Baseball at the Next Level That a Partnership with Rick and His Advanced Hitting Program is a Must!

Just wanted to send you a quick Thank You. Since Connor went through your latest hitting clinic his batting average is up at least .200 points, and we’ve seen a huge uptick in his power as well.

This past weekend in Chesterfield he went 13 for 14 at the plate with 3 walks and 11 RBI’s – and we played several AAA major teams.

My message is simple – thank you! We look forward to seeing what more he can do with his bat in the years to come!
