Story with Dom Brown
Hi! I'm Domonic Brown, a former member of the Reading Fightin Phils and a Philadelphia Phillies All-Star. Although I’m retired from playing baseball, I haven’t stopped spending time in the sport. Lately, I’ve been coaching and teaching lessons to a variety of ages.
I am excited about helping the local talent get to the next level. But mostly, I am excited about seeing more kids play and enjoy the game of baseball. It is something we can do together as a community and it begins right here at Rip It Baseballtown Charities with these clinics and lessons.
In my teaching and coaching I like to focus on the athlete’s approach. It is important to come at each and every at-bat and play on the field with the right mindset and mental fortitude. I want to teach kids to become students of the game. This approach sets a player up for success. I like to be laid back and straight to the point with my athletes, which is a coaching style that I learned was most effective when I played the game.
I see development in both individual and group lessons. The one on one aspect is great for personalized instruction in a very relaxed environment. In a group setting, kids will learn to push each other to their greatest potential. It also can help stimulate a game-like situation which can help the instructor see different outcomes.
