"As a baseball coach, one of the things I love most is the strategy involved in the game. Talking through game situations and deciding what pitch to throw in a certain count is like a chess match, and it's something I absolutely enjoy. I'm grateful to be able to offer this kind of service to young athletes because when I was growing up there wasn't anyone who could help me with this aspect of the game. My goal is to develop complete baseball players and pitchers, but also to help them become strong young men. These are big driving forces for me in my approach, and I'm hopeful that my efforts will make a difference in the lives of the athletes I work with at Narrow Path Sports.

Do you have a Calling to train with the Narrow Path?

“Being a Narrow Path athlete is a calling to be, and live differently.

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy[a] that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Mathew 7:13-14

Baseball has always been a big part of my life. As a kid, I played Little League and then in high school. I was never the best pitcher on the team, but I loved the game and worked hard at it. After a decade in the Major Leagues, I got into coaching and found that I really enjoyed teaching the game to young players.

One of the things I love most about baseball is that it is a sport that is full of teachable moments. Every play is an opportunity to learn something new. Whether it’s learning how to field a grounder or how to throw a curveball, baseball is a great way to develop new skills.

As a coach, I always try to stress the importance of hard work and dedication. It’s not enough to just show up to practice; you have to give it your all every day. That’s what it takes to be successful in baseball, and in life. If you’re willing to put in the work, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

The Narrow Path is one not many are willing to tread, but it’s worth it in the end. It may be difficult at times, but if you keep your eye on the prize, you

Pitching skills pay life-long dividends

“I remember when I was younger and played baseball. I didn’t start as the best pitcher on the team, but I always gave it my all. My coaches would always tell me that if I kept working hard, I would eventually get better. And they were right. Through determination and hard work, I eventually became one of the best pitchers in the league.

The life skills I learned through baseball pitching have served me well in other areas of my life. When I face a difficult situation at work, for example, I know that I can overcome it by putting in hard work and determination. And when something goes wrong, as it inevitably does from time to time, I know that it’s not the end of the world and that I can learn from my mistakes.

Baseball pitching skills pay life-long dividends no matter what job or endeavor you pursue. So if you ever find yourself struggling on the field, just remember that it’s all part of the learning process and that those same lessons will serve you well later on in life.” – JJ Hoover
