“I have had the opportunity to work with Jason in Rapid City for a number of years as well as attend top flight clinics with him and watched him continue to learn. I highly recommend Jason as a pitching instructor for those who aspire to be their best”.
~Brent Strom, MLB Pitching Coach Houston Astros

“I’ve been blessed to work with Coach Herz the past several years. He has consistently proven why many consider him the best infield and hitting coach around. He helped me improve from an undersized average baseball player, into the player I am now. I wouldn’t be where I am today without coach Herz’s training and guidance”
~Cooper Bowman Rapid City Post 22 – Short Stop, University of Louisvile
