Update from Coach Corral - Happy New Year

Posted on January 25, 2010 at 10:12am 1 Comment

I'll give you my status update. Over the summer, I was offered the pitching coach job at Vanguard University (NAIA) here in Southern California, which I accepted. I took over a staff which had an ERA of 6.99 last season, which amazes me since proper pitch sequencing should cut that by at least 2.00 runs per game. The two high schools I had coached at prior had been Division 1 powerhouses with ample talent, so taking this job was a unique opportunity to turn the program around and establish my… Continue

Youth Tryouts Part 1

Posted on July 21, 2009 at 10:50am 1 Comment

Tryouts for my 13u teams began this Saturday.

The kids show up early with their parents and mill about the outfield, along the first base foul line, until a few brave, but proactive players begin to stretch and warm up. My former 12u players from last… Continue

What's up man. All is great here. Moving to San Jose in a month.
The 2012 ABCA looks like it will be in Anaheim. So we'll probably see each other then!

Coach, thanks for the input! We have spent this year playing with 14U kids, some of them can throw some JUNK!!! When he remains disciplined at the plate, he hits everyone, however, that has been his struggle this year playing with the older kids! Thanks again!
