SCROLL DOWN

Introduction


Meet the Stoppers coaches

Our philosophy is a mix of “old-school” and new school. Stoppers approach is to teach accountability, in practice and in games, in a way that leads to lifelong success on and off the baseball field.

When it comes to “new school” Stoppers baseball teams practice hard. You'll never see one player fielding and eight watching. Instead, the focus is on a positive approach to up-tempo drills that prove practices really are as important as games.

As a team, we had the honor of being the first European team to be invited to the Asia Series in Taiwan in 2013. Throughout my career, I was honored by being voted to the All-Star team 3 times and voted as top reliever of the entire league 3 times. I am currently the all time saves leader for my former team, falling 3 saves short of the all time Italian saves leader in Italian baseball history. I also had the honor to wear the "Team Italy" uniform. Representing Italy, I competed in numerous major tournaments including the 2001 International World Cup of Baseball in Taipei, the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, and the 2006 Inaugural World Baseball Classic.

Since retiring in 2013, I moved to Chicago and have been coaching and giving private lessons. I had the pleasure of coaching 2 years with the Glenview Blaze travel program and another 2 years with the Diamond Dawgz travel elite program. I am currently giving private and group lessons in the Chicagoland area and a team consultant for team practices and game situations.
