Tom Oldham / Owner
I love what I do. Being able to coach, influence and support young athletes is what I am passionate about. I want to see each player I work with succeed and achieve their dreams. I love motivating and challenging each player to work harder than they thought possible. And watching the look on their face when they accomplish what they thought was out of their reach is awesome.
I played professional baseball in the Seattle Mariners organization and college baseball at Creighton University (#gojays) in Omaha, Nebraska. Since 2003, I’ve trained thousands of young pitchers through private instruction, team workouts, camps and clinics across the country. It wasn’t until pro-ball that I really learned how to pitch. Pitching is so much more than just throwing hard. Once a pitcher understands how to train in order to build their emotional, physical and mental skills they are ready to truly become a pitcher.
