Phil is an exceptionally gifted teacher. He explains pitching techniques in a clear, concise manner so my son ‘gets it’, so to speak. No one goes home frustrated from a lesson and when Phil spots a problem on the mound, he immediately pulls John aside and shows him, not just tells him, how to correct it. Phil’s gentle but precise teaching style is a real plus for all ages.–Michele Marsh
I worked with Phil between my freshman and sophomore years in college. After having had a lot of success at the high school level I was struggling with my control and also with the need to perfect a third pitch. He helped me develop the change up to the point where it became my “out pitch”. His encouraging style gave me the confidence to throw it in big spots while competing at a D1 level. I entered my junior year as my schools # 1 weekend starter and never looked back enjoying many personal highlights. His style of teaching will benefit pitchers at any stage of their development. –Kyle Birdsall
Phil is a master of the game and he uses an easy-going approach to teach and hone pitching skills. His experience and presence generate enthusiasm and capture attention.–Beth and Ed Matthews
My son, John, was 11 when he started working with Phil and I was amazed by the results. John’s ability and confidence grew by leaps and bounds. By the time he was 12, John was pitching in the Cal Ripken World Series.–Michele Marsh
I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for your work with my son Connor. You have really helped him step up his game. You brought my son’s pitching to a much more competitive level, he not only made the 7/8 grade team at school, but the JV team as well, Thank you!–Pilar J.
I can’t say enough about Phil and his work with my son Patrick. Phil is a very knowledgeable pitching coach, and he explains the complexities of the pitching motion in clear, concise manner. His ability to teach the fundamentals and more advanced pitching techniques along with his positive, encouraging coaching style make him a great choice for pitchers of all ages.–Dean Nelson
My son Christian had Phil as his first pitching coach. To this day many of the things that Phil suggested to Chris he still uses. Having a successful college career has been tough, but many of the techniques and fundamentals that Phil has taught are what helped Chris to be successful. I highly recommend to any young, aspiring pitcher to get with Phil, he has lived it and can teach it.–John Fumasoli
Phil worked with my twin high school sons. He taught them better pitching mechanics, as well as the mental aspects of pitching. He was very patient with them, and my sons found it very easy to work with him. The improvement was clearly visible, and they were not only able to pitch on the high school varsity level, but were recruited by terrific academic DIII baseball schools.
