Softball Hitting Instruction
Steve’s approach to hitting has helped dozens of his students go on to play at the Division I level. As a coach, he is one of the most successful in the state of Ohio. As coach of the Ohio Lasers Red, Steve became the first Ohio coach to win a national championship. Steve has also coached at Canton Central Catholic High School and Notre Dame College in Cleveland. Both of Steve’s daughters played at the Division I level: Lauren for the University of Buffalo and Caitlyn for the University of Akron. Steve has taught hitting at Diamond Dreams since 2015. #SteaksforSteve!
