Players who take lessons with Kevin realize immediately his passion for the sport and his extensive knowledge of the mechanics of hitting. Kevin studies in detail each movement of professional and college players on video then breaks down the mechanics to be able to teach players the proper body position to maximize strength and hitting angles. At Dirt Dawgs Kevin taught all instructors his method of hitting instruction so all of our instructors work together to build on the mechanics of hitting for all athletes. Kevin has helped many players, from several communities to become some of the most feared hitters in the region on the baseball and softball diamonds. Kevin has gained the respect of those associated with professional, collegiate, amateur and youth baseball programs. Kevin has committed his life to youth baseball and softball.
