Owner of Sluggers Batting Cages

Brian believes in the “Attack” method of hitting. Always putting the ball in play is better than watching a strike go by. Brian will teach your hitter balance, strong hands, driving the ball and attacking the strike zone. This will be accomplished with a variety of drills using the hitting tee, soft toss, hitting off the automated machine and positive reinforcement.

Brian will also instill the ideals of positive attitude, teamwork and respect for others and the game.

Brian has played or coached baseball/softball for the majority of his life starting with little league. Brian played HS baseball at SE Warren and after graduation played with teams in the Des Moines amateur league for 2 years. Brian has been a player/coach for adult softball teams in Des Moines totaling 8 years and then moved on the become a player/coach for 10 years in the Mid-Iowa Baseball League (over 30 division). When his girls were old enough Brian coached their Park & Rec softball teams. Always teaching good sportsmanship, positive attitudes and good teamwork.
