From Brian:

"My goal is to help the younger generation understand the mental aspect of pitching, prevent injury, and hold them accountable for their efforts towards progress. I believe that proper mechanics and a strong foundation can help younger athletes take control of the game and be able to compete in the strike zone. The game of baseball takes hard work at every level but we cannot for get to smile and laugh along the way. I look forward to working with all skills and ages at KC Baseball Performance."
