"I really enjoy working with student-athletes and being able to help them both on and off the field. Additionally,

I take pride in helping athletes return from injury as quickly as possible and provide the best care I can to them."

Pro Ball in Mexico:  "After college, I was offered a contract to play professionally in Mexico. The opportunity that I obtained to play professional baseball in Mexico for the Centinelas de Mexicali was an incredible experience. Being able to play at that level was a great experience and I was able to learn a lot from it. The game of baseball is played differently in Mexico, but nonetheless, the coaching staff really admired my work ethic, my demeanor, and the way I played the game of baseball. These are all things that I have learned throughout my career and that I hope to pass along to the athletes here at TCats. I want to be able to provide as much knowledge as I can about the game of baseball, not just the specifics of techniques, but also the intangible things that can take athletes to the next level." 

 

Fernando will be a part of the 16u/17u coaching staff, but available for hitting & infield lessons. Fernando is also fluent in Spanish.
