I want to personally thank Frank and Sean Gallagher for your effort and successful work that you have done with my son Eric Noland. As you know Eric started attending the Bullpen for hitting and fielding lesson a couple of years ago. He was going into his Sophomore year of high school and although he was a good ball player he struggled a bit hitting. The first year he work with Frank who work on his mechanics and taught him the basic fundamentals of hitting. He didn't really understand at the time why he had to hit all those balls off the tee but now he understands why!
The following year he worked with Sean hitting and fielding, at first I was a little reluctant about the switch but I think it was good for Eric to also get another excellent hitting instructors perspective. He had his best season ever, he was able to hit the ball the other with ease, recognize different pitches and his confidence level was extremely high! He was named to the All Conference, All Area, and 3rd team All State. His team also were the Mega Conference White Division Champions.
It has been a very busy summer and fall for Eric. With the different showcases that he attended, the college visits, many letters and offers, Eric has decided to become a student athlete by excepting a scholarship offer from Eastern Michigan University. He has verbally committed to Eastern and will sign the national letter of intent between Nov 8 and 15th. Eric has always wanted to play Division I baseball. I'm proud and extremely happy for him. I stayed and watch each lesson he received and saw him put what you guys taught him into action during the games.
Once again Thank You for all the work that you have done with Eric it has paid off. We will be contacting you in the next week or so to get Eric in and ready for his final year of High School Baseball.
Hey Frank -
Can a mom brag.......and give you the credit you deserve? Patrick just pitched the first game of the season - the whole game - and a shut out! His movement was beautiful, so beautiful that the ump pulled him aside and said that he'd never seen a smoother delivery in a kid his age. He told Patrick that his delivery would save his arm for the future. Patrick credits the mechanics you taught him as the source of the smooth delivery. He was like a machine.
He had about 8 strikeouts with his curve ball working perfectly. What an amazing beginning to the season. I had several parents asking where he'd been training and I didn't hesitate to tell them about you guys.
Again, a sincere thank you for both the skill building AND the confidence boost - it really showed.
See you soon,
