Baseball started in Tennessee, Memphis for my youth baseball followed by college at University of Tennessee.
Outfield primary with First Base as a secondary position.
Moved to St Louis in 1989, started Coaching in the mid 90’s with friends and that lead to Coaching at St. Dominic’s High School in St Charles. Football and Baseball were the primary sports to Coach. I assisted Steve Pfund at St Dominic’s on the Varsity level. This was my first paid coaching experience and that was for 5 years.
I then moved over to St John Vianney and Coached Football for 8 years with Coach Gladstone and Coach Diffley. I was asked to help Coach Brown with Baseball and enjoyed that for one year.
I was lucky enough along the way to have a family of my own, Jean my wife and Grant my son needed more of my time which helped me to transition from Coaching at the High School Level to youth sports. The past 4 years I have worked with My son’s team the St Louis Bears. Over the past two years we have won 100 plus games at the AA/AAA level.
Presently the decision to move over to the St Louis Naturals was an easy choice based on the Culture and the leadership of the organization. Based on the amount of tournaments I have participated in and witnessed the product of the Naturals on the field as well as the coaches off the field. This is one of premier organizations in the Mid-West and elated to be part of the St Louis Naturals.
