For the past 21 years, Rich has been a full-time fastpitch pitching instructor. Over the course of that time he has produced well over 100 college pitchers, a national Gatorade player of the year, two state Gatorade players of the year as well as dozens of regional and all-state pitchers. Annually he generally has between 3 to 5 of the top 20 high school pitchers in ERA and strikeouts in the state of California and does so by consistently developing many of the region’s top pitchers.
