Why I coach with the East Coast Sox?
This is my first summer coaching with the Sox. I am good friends with Coach AJ Kehoe, and he introduced me to the East Coast Sox. I knew I had chosen a great organization when I went to the website and saw that two of the founders of the Sox were former opponents of mine in the SEC. I also love the fact that Jesus Christ is a huge part of this organization. I was blessed by our creator Jesus Christ with amazing athletic ability. Because of my gifts Jesus Christ allowed me to play baseball all over this country, and be coached and trained by guys that could grow my skill set. Now I have the same opportunity to give the gift of knowledge and success to the players of the East Coast Sox.
