We are proud to announce that Project Beisbol has expanded its community services to include Baseball Coaching Courses to nourish the emerging baseball movement in a number of regions of Colombia. These courses, designed for passionate coaches and community leaders with limited or intermediate baseball coaching experience, include topics such as respect and responsibility in sports, mental strength, teaching methodology, as well as batting, fielding and pitching techniques. The inaugural course in Norte de Santander and Bogota, Colombia were led by Project Beisbol’s head trainer in Colombia, Fernando Lamadrid. A former member of the Selección Colombia and certified by MLB in coaching, he is also a psychologist which enhances the course in this very important aspect of baseball. He was accompanied by Matt Lucchesi, ex-professional (WBL) and Division 1 ballplayer from the USA, who led the catching session. We are very encouraged by the enthusiasm of the coaches who participated and the regional unity these courses will create as we spread baseball across the state.
