I received an email this past week from a parent looking to explore some options for a hitting coach/consultant for his two AAU sons. I posted a message on my social media pages asking for recommendations or for Rhode Island based coaches to email me about their availability. And if you are a Rhode Island based hitting coach/consultant and would like me to profile your business/services, go to my contact me page via this link (contact form), feel free to message me on social media or email me at ribaseballexperience.com. Here are some of the responses and recommendations I received this week:
From L&M Baseball via Instagram “Happy New Year! L & M Baseball training staff got you covered in all areas of the game. firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an evaluation.”
Email message from Middletown’s John Cawley – “My name is John Cawley. I am the Baseball Coach at Gaudet Middle School in Middletown. This will be my 5th Season at Gaudet. Previously I was the Freshman, JV and Assistant Varsity Coach at Middletown High School from 2003-2010. I left Middletown to Coach my own kids in Portsmouth Little League from 2011-2016. I was an Allstar Coach and Assistant All Star Coach in Portsmouth. And I have been an assistant Babe Ruth Coach in Middletown and Portsmouth. If there are kids around Aquidneck Island who have contacted you about instruction, I would be interested in talking to them and their parents. My contact info – email@example.com; (401) 855-3331″
Recommended via Instagram – Chris Hess (@chrishess07 on Twitter) – “Interested parents or players can email me to get in contact at firstname.lastname@example.org and I have my website (http://401elitebaseballtraining.com) that has all my information or on Instagram (@401elitebaseball)”
This recommendation came in via Facebook – “Jeff (Diehl) played at Cranston West and was drafted by Mets and Jimmy (Titus) played for Bryant was drafted by Dodgers”
Parents, players, and coaches – I post and share winter clinics run by college baseball coaches as soon as I see them on social media or if one of the coaches emails me a link. These clinics are a great way to get top level instruction from top level area coaches, some of whom do private pitching and hitting lessons here at area indoor baseball facilities. Just to give you a small reminder of our typical baseball field availability in January/February/March here in Rhode Island, here is what I see out my office window this morning as I am writing to you:
So, take advantage of these local Rhode Island baseball resources this off season. And once again, if you are a hitting consultant here in Rhode Island and would like me to promote your services, get in contact with me. Or if you know a great coach and would like to recommend them, send me a message!
