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.”
