Former MLB Players Are Our Coaches
Who better than to learn baseball skills and insights than from former Major League Baseball players? They had a special talent and took it all the way to the big leagues. Though they may not play the game any more, our coaches have turned their talents to sharing their passion for the game with young people all over the U.S. and world. Many have established their own foundations and programs that work with youth. And they're tremendously excited to join YFI's unique vision of allowing young players to experience baseball!
