I am a current Minor League pitcher in the Texas Rangers Organization. I was drafted out of The University of Houston in 2017, playing two seasons there after two seasons of junior college baseball at Angelina College. I am home for the off season after finishing the season in High An where I ended the season second in ERA in the Carolina League. Going from one college offer out of high school (Angelina) to be lucky enough to be able to play baseball professionally, I have learned so much about the game. Three of the biggest things that have stood out to me through my years of playing the game of baseball at a high level is that you do not get to the level you want to be at without hard work, preparation, and determination to get there. I have picked up many things from the numerous amounts of teammates and coaches I have been lucky enough to cross paths with and am eager to share tips and important teaching points.

Pedro Borbón Jr.
I am a former Major League Baseball pitcher. I played for nine seasons (1992–2003) for five teams, including four seasons for the Atlanta Braves, and three seasons for the Toronto Blue Jays. I was mainly a relief pitcher. I come from a baseball family. My father, Pedro Borbón was also a pitcher, playing for the Cincinnati Reds and three other teams from 1969 to 1980. I am right-handed but taught myself to throw left-handed to increase my marketability as a pitcher. I won the World Series with the Braves in 1995. I have over 20 years coaching experience and hope to work with you soon!
Jessica 'George' Brown
"I am passionate about teaching proper and efficient pitching mechanics. I focus on getting athletes to their full potential and preventing injury. I understand that some athlete’s biomechanics will require creativity for efficiency and effectiveness. Although the physical part of the game is very important, the mental aspect is even more so. Pitchers need to be able think the game, work through adversity and fatigue, and grind until the last out. My goal is to help make these young athletes the best they can be and be able to compete at the highest level. I have 7 years of Division 1 coaching experience and look forward to sharing my knowledge of the game, pitching, and recruiting process at TBA."
