Coach Louie provides baseball lessons in Los Angeles at Pan Pacific Park
My name is Coach Louie and baseball is literally my life. I first learned the game from my grandfather then my dad. My dad played professionally in Cuba. My uncle played professionally in Nicaragua. I’ve been playing and learning baseball since I was 4 years old and I still currently play competitively in adult single A leagues. My goal is to pass everything I learned from great coaches to today’s youth who have a passion and love for the same game I have a passion and love for.

I have played this game my whole life and have been a student of the game every day of my life as well. I played 4 years of high school and went on to play in community college, but I ended my career early due to an injury. After years of rehab I still continue playing competitively in adult single A leagues. I also currently manage and play for my own Sunday league team, the Santa Monica Mavericks in the Beach Cities Adult Baseball League.
A lesson with me:
A lesson with me would include learning about my player and then starting with a warm up. It is very important to teach a young player the importance of playing catch and how to do that effectively, so I will spend some time with them on their throwing mechanics. Each lesson will be different and I will always tailor my lessons to what my client needs work on as well as has the most fun with. For me, it is always about a balance and making sure that my players have fun and learn at the same time.
My favorite motivational quote:
“Life is like baseball, the most important things take place at home!”
“Pencils have erasers because people make mistakes. It’s okay to make a mistake!”
