Private Lessons

Ready to take your game to the next level?

Tom provides hitting instruction to promising area players who are looking for a competitive edge. He works with individual players as well as entire teams. And he does it all on a volunteer basis for players willing to put in the effort.

“You can’t have a million-dollar dream with a minimum-wage work ethic,” Tom likes to say, quoting Stephen C. Hogan.

Whether advising athletes in the batting cage or about life, Tom helps young people understand the role attitude plays in success.

He teaches players that working as a team is more important than individual statistics and awards—and that the best part of baseball is having fun with friends.

What can I say about T.R.? He took me from a young athlete and made me an All-Star! Helped me both on and off the field! If you are lucky enough to learn from him take it and run.
