Lead Pitching Instructor
My name is Aaron Kurcz. I was a right handed pitcher who had the opportunity to pitch professionally for the last 10 years, for 5 different MLB organizations. During my 10-year career, I played 3 total years in Triple-A (AAA) baseball. I was drafted in the 10th round by the Chicago Cubs in June of 2010. From there, I spent the next 10 years playing for the Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves, Oakland Athletics, Toros de Tijuana, and the Milwaukee Brewers. I’m extremely thankful to have played the game of baseball for as long as I did, especially since I learned a ton about hard work, dedication, friendships, work ethic, baseball knowledge, life itself, and many more things. Now that I have decided to retire from playing baseball, my mission is to pass on my knowledge of baseball to anyone who wants to learn, from youth to professionals and anywhere in between. I’ve learned that baseball is such a great game, so another goal of mine is teaching how to really enjoy this game and have fun playing it. I look forward to working with each and every one of you.
