Brian is starting his 5th season with AllStars with his primary focus being the position of catcher. He works with boys and girls, developing them – from the basic fundamentals to the most advanced techniques.
A Shaker High School graduate, Brian continued his playing career at Schenectady County Community College and finally ended up at St Rose. After a career-ending injury while at St Rose, Brian began his coaching days assisting at Albany High School and with summer elite travel teams. He handled the Assistant GM’s position for the Florence Red Wolves of the Coastal Plains Collegiate Baseball League in South Carolina. He was also the GM of the Schenectady Mohawks when they were in the NYCBL. Most recently, he was the assistant coach/recruiting coordinator at HVCC and has been an Associate Scout for both the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers organizations.
Leo took our son from a average Babe Ruth player to the next level of power hitting and playing. He made him feel like he could do it.
But the most important thing he has instilled in our son is competitive drive and confidence in playing the game. Along with mechanics comes strong communication on strength training, nutrition, healing soreness and most important what his attitude should be on the field. Great advice like DWAB – don’t waste an at bat. And as my husband has said “he went from a whiffer to wacker with Leo.”
