MADE Baseball Lead Instructor
Hi, my name is Coach Isaac Hess. I have been a full-time Private Baseball Instructor since 2008, completing over 10,000 private sessions, group sessions, team practices, clinics, classes, and camps completed in the last 12 years. I’ve worked with 5 year olds up to professionals and everywhere in between. If you want to get better, I want to help you achieve your goals.
I am fully dedicated to teaching the game of baseball and developing and improving the MADE Baseball Curriculum every single day. I created the MADE Baseball Development and Champion Mindset Training Program to help youth players be the best they can be, on and off the field. I see baseball as a portal of positive learning and overcoming adversity. This is what is has been for me since day 1, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to coach and mentor the players that I do.
Teaching this game is about building relationships and guiding players to find their inner drive and motivation as a person and as a player…it is not about obtaining fast results. 90% of the game is mental, especially at the youth level. We understand that success starts in the mind. Succeeding in anything starts with your mindset and attitude. It’s not a sprint, it’s a MADE marathon.
Myself and the MADE Baseball team of professional baseball instructors separate ourselves from other programs by focusing on attitude and approach to the game. If you choose to train with me and our team, you can expect to work hard, have fun, and get the most out of every single training session we have together. Our main requirements from our players is that they show up with a great attitude, have fun, and do their best, EVEryday.
