John R. Falk provided the following info:

I have been playing baseball for some 32 years, and have worked with players at all levels. I work one-on-one, small group, and entire teams as the situation dictates. I also hold clinics and \"skull sessions.\" I employ all the tricks and tools of the trade to ensure that the student/client has access to the range of instructional aides to best suit his or her needs. I use radar guns, video tape analysis (both on field and after-the-fact), weighted baseballs, power cords, and a host of productivity enhancement tools. Most important of all, I love and respect the game of baseball, and I hopefully \"infect\" my students with the same love of the game I have experienced through the years. We\'ll always have fun, and always be learning, for baseball is chocked full of time-tested ideas as well as new and innovative concepts. I embrace it all, expose the player to it all, and then let him use what works and discard the rest.

Richard Campbell provided the following info:

With 30+ years of professional playing, scouting, & teaching the game of baseball, I have found the theories of science and the athletic ability to perform are two-fold. Applying the theories to the athletic ability is correct because two people are not the same. The cloning theory is wrong and can lead to many painful and mindless energy, shorting careers and never reaching full potential. Our 3 D\'s approach: discipline, desire, dedication.

Gary Patchett provided the following info:

I just finished playing my 7th season of professional baseball playing for the Angels top affiliate in Salt Lake City. I previously played the past 6 seasons with the Cincinnati Reds. I have been blessed to have had many great hitting coaches in my career, in which I have learned so much about the baseball swing. There are so many different hitting styles and no two hitters are exactly the same. There are however some fundamental similarities that all great hitters have. Ingraining these similarities into your swing is what is going to make you a better hitter.

All aspects, Catching $40/hour
Casey Cloud provided the following info:

Division 1 college (UCLA) and professional playing experience (minor league). I do regular camps, specialty clinics, coaches clinics, and private lessons. I have kids as young as 8 and all the way up to current minor leaguers I help train in the fall and winter. Every kid is different, and there are lots of ways to succeed in this great game...I try to find what is best for your kid. That may mean intensive instruction twice a week, or just simply learning the game and how to enjoy it and be a fan. 80% of all kids stop playing after 12 yrs. old....mostly due to lack of fundamentals and poor instruction...I\'m trying to change that. Character, hard work, aggressiveness, and fun are what I stress.
