Were instrumental in establishing the Pacific Northwest Chapter of Cure Autism Now, a coalition of athletes, community leaders, board members, celebrities, and parents of an autistic child, they have a personal investment in fundraising to find a cure for autism.

“It has been important to me to give something back to the game.  I was truly fortunate to have made to the Major Leagues as I was signed off of a tryout upon graduating from college.  I have a keen sense of what it takes having been a bit of an underdog my whole athletic career.  I have taken my experiences and developed a training regiment that not only teaches the proper mecanics but allows me to help hone in on both the mental and motivational aspects.  I treat each kid uniquely and customize my teaching to him.  My goal is to improve them as pitchers and to give them the belief that anything is possible.
