With over 33 years of Fastpitch Softball experience and one of the few Male Pitching Coaches that pitched in Mens Fastpitch Softballin the 1980 and 1990's. Jimmy has coached at all levels, currently instructs , offers college pitcing skills videos, uses Motion Capture Analysis next to a Jennie Finch or Cat Osterman to name a few and is the only instructor using his 4S program that can tell the level the student is pitching on that day.
Jimmy pitched competitive softball for the Old Friends, Charlie's and the Delta Rebels in the '80 and mid '90's. Jimmy was the pitching coach at Ceres high school from 1991-1998 (in 1995 winning a section title) , Central Valley Sacrafice 18's in the mid 90's and Modesto Junior College from 1998-2005. Jimmy also worked out, competed against or coached with USA National coaches and players. We are proud of the fact that 95% of our students that start with Jimmy stay with him... all the way thru their college days. We are one of the few instructors that can and have worked at all levels, beginning, intermeiate, and all the way up to college DI.
Jimmy's mentors... I give credit to two individuals that have taught me how to teach. Phil de la Porte- Phil coached college basketball at Idaho State and Ceres H.S. for over 35 years! Phil told me one time " you know your stuff but you need to have an agenda". Mike "Otto" Thill- Otto would wait on my front porch every Sat or Sunday to work-out. This went on for years! Then when Otto moved to Montana he told me you have two students. He introduced me to them and left. From then on I was giving pitching lessons if I wasn't playing myself.
