“This book expertly guides the reader through the basics of coaching youth baseball. Its impact goes far beyond the game’s clinical and technical requirements: it teaches adults how to be human toward children . . . I could not have found a better coach for my own son, and anyone seeking advice would benefit from reading and relying on Dan’s carefully crafted book.”

Joe Girardi, Three-time World Series Champion as player (Yankees), 2006 N.L. Manager of the Year (Marlins), Yankees Manager (2008–2017) and 2009 World Series Champions

“Dan and I began our baseball relationship when I was 4 years old. He helped set the foundation for my future success, and any time I struggle, I try to work back to the simple concepts and techniques he taught me.”

Dan’s love of baseball started way back when he was a Little Leaguer in the Bronx, NY. His passion for the game continued through his high school years at The Bronx High School of Science where he was selected to the All-City team his senior year. It was during his collegiate experience at Binghamton University where he became the first player in school history to be chosen for the amateur draft, when the Los Angeles Dodgers selected him in the 7th round.
By most accounts, the Los Angeles Dodgers were considered the premier teaching and player development organization in all of baseball at the time. “The Dodger Way” of playing the game became the foundation and focal point for Dan’s instructional template following the end of his playing career. Currently, Dan is the owner of the ProSwing Baseball & Softball Train- ing Center in Mount Kisco, NY which opened in 2002. The second ProSwing facility, opened in 2009, is located in Port Chester, NY. “The daily mission is to create a comfortable learning environment that enhances knowledge and passion for the game and accelerates personal satisfaction and growth. Every day I use baseball as the vehicle to improve each player’s self-esteem in helping become the best player and person possible,” says Dan.
To date, Dan has been quoted in many outlets such as The New York Times, The Westchester Business Journal and The Journal News. In addition, he has been a featured guest speaker on CNN, WFAN, ESPN radio, WXRK and New York 1. These outlets, along with his involvement in over 200 coaches clinics, have highlighted several of Dan’s favorite topics, such as player development, youth sports and parental involvement, youth baseball issues, steroids in baseball—youth perspective, off season baseball training routines, and many others.
“Dan’s work ethic and commitment to his craft have always shined through and con- tinue to drive his success. Having known Dan for 20 years, it’s hard to think of other people who match his ability to connect with young athletes. Throughout his success and growth, the thing that has remained most apparent to me is the type of person that Dan is, and his relationship with my family and me mean the world to us.”
Jeremy Zoll, Director, Minor League Operations Minnesota Twins

“I met Dan almost 12 years ago when I was looking for baseball instruction for my son. Not only has Dan made an impact on both my boys, he has become a friend. He is just a great guy and knows his baseball. I have had the opportunity to bring clients to see Dan and a co-worker who pitched in the big leagues for 17 years as well whose comment on Dan was, “Great guy and seems like a good baseball guy, and not a nut like so many.” Enough said.”

Bobby Barad, Dad and pro baseball agent, Excel Sports Management

“…Follow closely Dan’s instruction and techniques in the book, be patient and persistent with your kids, and the results will follow. Then, you can take pride in succeeding at what Dan has accomplished in his life in baseball – developing the best players, teammates, and young men and women of character and sportsmanship.”

Bernie Williams, five-time All-Star, AL Batting Champion, four-time Gold Glove winner and four-time World Series Champion

“His knowledge comes from his love of the game and all the lessons learned from it. Not to mention the amount of time he’s put into his research on the biomechanics of a swing, the ways to break down and re-build the swing accordingly, how to express those instructions with different tactics based on the person he is dealing with and what he analyzes is the best way for that person to retain and execute that information. He is the best hitting coach I have worked with next to Kevin Long, and I have grown up around the game my entire life. I listen to every word out of Dan’s mouth because I know that it is meaningful, has a purpose, and will make me a better hitter and person.”

Lee Mazilli Jr., Triple A player, New York Yankees

“[Dan] is as passionate and knowledgeable in regard to America’s pastime as anyone I’ve met over my many years playing and coaching. His hands on approach, love for the game and unique perspective make him the ideal leader for instruction and advice to players and coaches of all backgrounds and interests.”

Garett Teel,, former MLB player and owner, Teels Baseball & Softball Training Center

“Dan’s simple hitting approach and methods have allowed me to make the necessary adjustments to help “re-discover” my swing and hopefully, get myself back to the major leagues very soon.”
