MADE Baseball Coaches
Book Private Lessons with Professional Baseball Coaches
We teach our players how to pitch, hit, field, run, and THINK like Champions. MADE Baseball is a group of top baseball experts and private baseball coaches in the greater Los Angeles area.
Each of our coaches has played college and/or professional baseball and dedicated their lives to expanding their knowledge of the game.
Many of our students have gone on to play in college as well as professional baseball, and we love the opportunity to create impactful relationships with our clients and help to guide them in a positive direction throughout their baseball journeys.
In working with our staff, you have access to our expert group of fun-loving, like-minded, knowledgeable, and positive baseball coaches. There is no other baseball coaching staff in that exists like the MADE Baseball coaches.
Our MADE Baseball Coaching Staff works with students from ages 5 years old all the way up to professionals, and everywhere in between. From beginners who just want to learn about the game or pursue getting on a men’s league team or even a co-ed softball team, to advanced professionals who are trying to refine their craft and make it to the highest level possible, we’re here to help. We’ve even worked with some adults that are 50+ that want to prepare for Adult Baseball Fantasy Camp in Arizona and/or Florida.
*If you want to get better and train your game, we want to help you improve.
Our ideal student is one who loves coming to practice, does what we ask to the best of their ability at all times, and has a true passion to excel as a player and a person. Also, a student who takes the initiative to use the tools we’ve given them and go above and beyond what we ask them to do.
Whether a player is simply out there to have fun or a player is grinding and doing everything they can to make it to college or the major leagues, we adapt our teaching style to the expressed desires of the player. We take pride in being able to cater to all different ages and experience levels, and we enjoy helping players reach their potential and have a blast while doing the work.
Every coach on the MADE Baseball staff has a deep love of baseball and has dedicated the majority of their life to pursuing their own greatness in the game. We are all baseball men, and most of us will be for life.
Each of us started from young ages and had the blessing of being influenced by hundreds of amazing mentors and coaches along our path. Each of us has a tremendous amount of value to add to your player, and a unique perspective and set of knowledge to share.
All of the MADE Baseball Coaches in Los Angeles have had an amazing career in baseball and have learned from great managers, leaders, and mentors. Many of the managers our coaching staff have been exposed to have coached or are still coaching in the MiLB and/or MLB, Major League Baseball.
Some of the household names that our baseball coaching staff have learned from are:
- Tim Raines, 23 year MLB veteran and Hall of Famer
- Daryl Evans, 20 year MLB veteran, 414 career homeruns
- Mako Oliveras, Mexican League Manager w/over 20 years managing experience all around the world
- Kip Gross, 5 years in MLB and 5 years in Japan Professional League
- Rick Forney, 13 year veteran manager of the Winnipeg Goldeyes, the longest independent ball manager in history
- Willie Upshaw, 10 year MLB veteran
- Andy Haines, current big league hitting instructor with the Milwaukee Brewers
- and many more
We have two rules:
1) Always Have Fun.
2) Always Do Your Best.
We start with a quick discovery session. Here we will chat for a few minutes to establish the goals of the player along with set our expectations for the session to follow.
As the session begins, we will always start with a dynamic warm up. We are focused on helping our players create their own “championship routine” with a fun mix of dynamic stretching and movement preparation, as well as calisthenics. This routine is determined by the age, skill level, and fitness of the player and it is designed to help our players program their ability to move properly, as well as prepare them to maximize performance and minimize the risk of injury.
After our warm up, dependent on the desired areas of improvement of the player and what we will work on, we will go into a throwing program where the MADE Baseball Coach will test and evaluate the throwing mechanics of the player, or, if a focus on hitting training is desired we will begin with tee work and soft toss drills where we will test and evaluate the mechanics of the player’s swing and determine an appropriate plan of action. From there we will continue to evaluate the player throughout the lesson and give feedback and drills and some suggested homework as we finish the session.
We enjoy everything about being full time baseball coaches and professional youth mentors. Working with youth athletes is our passion and purpose because it gives us the opportunity to make a positive impact in our community through the game that we love. This game has given us so much, and we have been fortunate to be able to teach so many players during our coaching careers.
The best part about being a youth coach is that we have the opportunity to help young players create a healthy and positive foundation for the physical and mental aspect of their game, on and off the field. Also, the relationships we’ve had the blessing of being able to create while working with young players and families and seeing them develop over time is incredibly rewarding to each and every one of us.
