to positively affect the lives of thousands of athletes. Many years ago his passion led him to lead through the written word. As the internet grew many became familiar with his articles on safe play, instruction, and management. As such he has been contacted as an advisor and consultant in many instances. As it relates to assisting lawyers he is able to provide significant support in detailing current best practice.

College Pitching Coach

“I have spent a lifetime speaking for player safety. I have counseled, warned, and pleaded for increased coaching awareness and training that protects players. Unfortunately my advice, as well as that of others, has often been ignored or cited as inconvenient.

Safe play has been marginalized by parents and coaches because winning the moment is much more important; the seduction of passing fame. Subsequently players have received reckless supervision. Whether through a consciously managed system of abuse, irresponsible negligence, or coaching ignorance, the bottom line is unnecessary and preventable harm to children.”
