SAYING

Coach Strickland was instrumental in preparing me for baseball at the next level. I would certainly recommend that any player with aspirations of playing collegiate or professional baseball turn to him and his staff for the same guidance and instruction they provided me – it is a partnership I could not have done without.

RICK STRICKLAND

Owner, MLB Hitting Consultant,

Professional Scout, Coach

Rick has had an illustrious career in America’s favorite sport. He was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1989 and played with the world’s most famous baseball team until 1993 as both an outfielder and an infielder.


He then founded the St. Louis Pirates, a nationally recognized College Development Program, in 1996. The program started as a fall season program with a goal of promoting area high school players to college and professional scouts. The program was so successful that it grew into a year-round institution in 2006. Due to the program’s efforts, hundreds of student athletes have received college baseball scholarships and many have gone on to play the sport professionally.

ADDITIONAL TESTIMONIALS


Working with Rick and his staff has been amazing. The program is broken down into steps that will guide you through the process of developing an elite swing. When you combine that with his knowledge of how to apply technology this program is a must for any aspiring player.



Matt Adams

1B/OF, Washington Nationals


From the time I started with Rick every aspect of my swing has improved…plate coverage, power, consistency…I have never been around baseball technology before, and honestly thought it was kind of stupid, until I learned how to use it and it has been a tremendous asset. I looked forward to everyday I got to come hit and learn.


Rafael Lopez

C, San Diego Padres


The highlight of my offseason is working with Rick to refine my swing and make sure it is efficient. I have seen firsthand the impact he can have on a player’s career. After struggling in low A and high A my first two seasons in the minor leagues I started working with Rick and the next year I was promoted to AA after a successful spring training.
