“I look strict! ( Steve laughing) And I guess maybe to put some of the moms at ease – I should have approved another picture… like, maybe where I am happy and everything seems fine… lol. But the truth is when a player attends one one my programs, the majority of the time they are trying to learn something. And the last time I checked learning is hard. It is more like this face… Below you can read about some of my accomplishments and I am very proud of them. But none of them were possible without education, effort and discipline. As I get older and think back on life I realize that I was not born with any of these tools. I acquired them – copied them – emulated them from various people in my life that I looked up to. Therefore, my programs are all seasoned for a good taste of education, effort and discipline. This element of our programming often proves to be equally as important as the baseball instruction. Years ago I was asked in a newspaper interview what I did for a living. I replied, I try to make boys better men by using the game of baseball as my vehicle. Studying sport in college, I came to believe that baseball’s design is more like life than any other sport. Therefore, I also believe that when baseball is played and practiced correctly it will literally act as a safe and repetitive dress rehearsal for life itself. A sort of fun, life’s practice, before it all really counts. What could be better?” – Steve Ferroli
