Hickory Baseball Board Contacts
Hickory-Fountain Green Baseball President
I have been involved with Hickory Fountain Green Baseball since 2015, serving as head coach and age group coordinator for several years prior to joining the HFG Baseball Board. I grew up in Churchville and am a ninth generation Harford Countian. I thoroughly enjoy teaching the game, and see baseball as a means to instill the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and maintaining a positive attitude.
Communications and Uniforms Director
I have been coaching youth sports, including baseball and soccer, since 2009 and have coached with Hickory Baseball since 2011. I have coached my three boys through various levels of the baseball program beginning at 4-6, and currently I am the Head Coach of one of our Hickory Hornets travel teams. I am focused on developing fundamental baseball skills, baseball IQ, mental toughness, and good character and sportsmanship in my players. My ultimate goal is that my players will love the game of baseball as much as I do.
Travel Baseball Director
I have been a youth coach since 2013, and the Travel Baseball Director since 2021. I also currently Head Coach one of our Hickory Hornets travel teams. I am passionate about player development and enjoy teaching the various aspects of the game of baseball. I also enjoy helping the players develop skills and lessons that will benefit them in their lives off the field.
Director of Coaching and Player Development
I have been a part of the HFG baseball program for 3 years and am the current assistant coach of the 9U Hickory Hornets Black team and Head Coach of the 8U Hickory Hornets Blue team. I am the coaching liaison for any coaches that would like practice suggestions or ideas. I have a long history of playing and coaching at various levels. I was the assistant baseball coach at Harford Community College and I coached several nationally ranked youth baseball teams between the ages of 12U -16U. I have also been fortunate to coach a number of players that have gone on to play professionaly.
I have been a head and assistant coach with HFG baseball throughout different age groups since 2015 with 2 of my 3 kids so far. We plan to have our third as part of this great program as well, once he is old enough. I grew up playing baseball through high school in New York, and truly enjoy the game. My love for the game is continued on through our children, and the opportunity to teach life skills through this great game. I am blessed to be part of this great program!
Director of Umpires
I have been involved with the Hickory Fountain Green baseball program since 2018. I have coached both of my boys in both the 4-6 and 7-8 in house age group and I'm currently an assistant coach in the Hickory Hornets travel program. I have played baseball my entire life, continuing to this day in a men's adult league in Harford County. I enjoy teaching the game of baseball...and I believe there's more to it than just winning and losing. We need to teach our youth how to be good leaders, good teammates, have good sportsmanship, and generally to play the game the right way.
I started with Hickory Fountain Green baseball coaching my daughter 4 years ago. I currently coach my son in the 4-6 age group. I have been the 4-6 age group coordinator for the last 3 years. I am originally from Pennsylvania and played baseball through high school and college. I enjoy teaching players the fun of baseball, while offering a strong foundation of skills.
I grew up playing baseball in Harford County. I have been involved in youth sports for over 20 years through a baseball camp I run over the summer, coaching my daughters in soccer with HFG and now my son with HFG baseball. I helped start the Patterson Mill High School Baseball Program as an assistant varsity coach and was there for 14 years. As you can see, I love the game of baseball, and I have ever since I put on a glove. I currently still play in a men's adult league here in Harford County. I am excited to be a part of the HFG program and help spread my love of the game.
I have been involved in Hickory Baseball since 2020, and have coached in both the rec and travel programs. I am passionate about baseball, and believe that our game is a wonderful tool for helping kids develop character, work ethic, and teamwork. I also encourage my teams to have entirely too much fun along the way.
