I quantified the strike zone for baseball and softball players, recruiters, and coaches. I created a common language for the chess match of pitcher vs. hitter. This will...more produce big predictive data globally within the year.
I spent 2 years as pitching coach field testing the Lokator System. My first year (2011), we improved from 122nd in the nation to 9th in walks. We also went from 111th to...more 12th nationally in earned run average. 6/12 of the schools all time best pitchers used the Lokator System for at least 1 year.
I was a MLB pitcher for the Royals in 2005 and 2006. In my first MLB appearance I threw 3 perfect innings against the Texas Rangers. I had a career 0.00 ERA against the...more New York Yankees. I am proud to say I never took steroids in an era where more players did than didn't.
I threw approximately 1000 innings over 6 years with the Cardinals farm system. I played at every level of the minors for less than minimum wage pay and no off season or...more spring training pay. I kept improving every year until I made my dream come true with the Royals in 2005.
I have the pleasure of working as a business coach, consultant with Steve on his intriguing new product idea. In my opinion, Steve is very innovative, positive, dedicated and driven with great energy and attitude. Additionally I believe him to be honest, trustworthy and a dedicated family man.
I've followed Steve's progress with his Lokator system for over a year, and have been impressed with his insight and his focus on using image recognition technology to help improve the performance of pro and amateur baseball pitchers.
I have known Steve for more than a year and worked with him in several ways. First, he was a pitching coach for my son. Having been a coach myself for many years, I truly appreciate the high quality insights he brings to instructional baseball. His skills come from many years of playing through the college and professional ranks. What he has learned from MLB down through his early years of playing has been converted into solving a major pain point in learning the art of pitching.
Next, as an experienced angle investor I have reviewed many ideas, pitches, decks and business plans. His concept is ground breaking and has the potential to revolutionize the baseball instructional space. He is a persistent entrepreneur who knows how to listen and take criticism which I appreciate as an angel investor.
I look forward to working with Steve as he continues the challenge of meeting his milestones.
