Welcome to NJ Juggernauts Baseball where instructing the basic fundamentals, hard work (team & self-practice), and to teach the players to have a clear understanding of how to play the game the right way is my top priority. I also educate the players on the importance of working hard at their individual skills, developing their mental toughness, and maintaining their commitment to the success of their TEAM.
NJ Juggernauts Baseball will have a
14U spring and summer team for the 2015 season.
During the spring we will have three practices per week and up to 4 practices per week during the summer, all in Bergen County NJ and games will be played on Saturdays and or Sundays. We will also be competing in several local tournaments.
I work with the players to prepare and maintain their mental toughness on the field, pitching mound, at the plate and during practices.
When and how to think, (Baseball Intelligence Quotient) how to set up before a pitch, how to react and know what to do with the ball when it is put in play and to have a good approach when they step up to the plate. These are the foundations for a young player's enjoyment in baseball. Young players often learn the physical aspects of the game, but often do not understand the mental side of baseball nor do they know how to deal with it. The mental side of baseball is a large piece of the puzzle, that must be addressed if players want to move through the higher levels of the game.
I teach the correct mechanics and the mental preparation that is needed before the first pitch and up to the last out.
"The Dictionary is the only place that SUCCESS comes before WORK. HARD WORK is the price we must pay for SUCCESS."
The learning process and Hard Work NEVER END!
It's time to put in your work and
prepare like a CHAMPION!
100% Focus,100% Effort must be performed at all times, Practice, Games, and in your Everyday Life.
Players...you must commit to this way of thinking, your mind is the most powerful tool you have...harness it, learn how to use it, then release it into your way of life, and into your game!
Play Hard, Play Smart, Have FUN!
That's Juggernauts Baseball...See you on the field.

I teach my players to respect their opponents, to maintain their composure on the field and I do not emphasize winning or losing. I feel players need to put their emphasis on being 100 % Focused before each pitch. Learn and understand what to do with the ball before & after it's pitched and for my players to give 100 % Effort during all practices & games.
Teaching youth players to understand the benefits of hard work through practicing on their own, which is highly recommend and through team practices. Providing the proper information on how to conduct oneself during workouts, practices, games, and last but not least, proper dugout etiquette.
I never put the game before the health and well being of one of the players. The safety of all my players comes first. I am very aware of my pitchers' warm up / cool down routine in order to support and maintain a healthy arm.
Learning defensive assignments at the
14U 60/90 club level is of the utmost importance. Teaching how to; properly run bases, read cut off throws, read opposing pitchers and how players need to move their feet & hands quickly and correctly in all aspects of the game. All of which is a large part of my program and my philosophy.
Also available, private or semi-private instruction; Pitching, Hitting, and Catching.
Video Analysis included for all lessons.
