Select praise for Elite Diamond Performance

"I've had the privilege to train privately with Coach Sheppard for the past couple years. His experience allows him to tailor his hitting lessons to the individual player and he is always looking to offer something to improve on.  Whether it be through slow motion video, live pitching, or regular BP, everything is done with a purpose.  His top-notch instruction has definitely helped me make a smooth and successful transition from high school to the collegiate level.  I would highly recommend Coach Sheppard to anyone looking to take their game to the next level."

-Pat Anderson, College of New Jersey

"For the five years I’ve been taking private hitting and catching lessons with Coach Sheppard, he has helped me elevate my game to be a successful college baseball player. His emphasis on sound fundamentals and quality mechanics along with constructive criticism will help any baseball player who has the desire to play at the next level. Coach Sheppard’s experience from coaching and playing at the collegiate and professional levels enables him to tailor his level of instruction to your specific needs. I attribute much of my success to his training and would recommend him to anyone who has aspirations to be a blue chip prospect."

-Will Anderson, Gettysburg College

"My son  has been taking hitting lessons with Jimmy for the past four years.  Jimmy is an excellent instructor who is very knowledgeable on the mechanics of hitting. He is able to communicate his skills to the players and always is very patient.  If you want to take your son to the next level of baseball, I would strongly recommend Jimmy. "

-Henry, parent

"Jimmy has helped out my son tremendously.  With just a few small changes to his swing, he has more power and is making more consistent, harder contact.  He does a great job blending mechanics with strength and conditioning.  In addition to helping him out on the field, Jimmy has been a great role model for my son."

-Joan, Parent

"Jimmy has served as our son Tyler's primary hitting coach for the past three years. Jimmy has provided consistent and age appropriate feedback, which has led to success in the batter's box and increased overall confidence on the baseball field.  We congratulate Jimmy on opening his own facility and look forward to Tyler continuing to develop as a player under Jimmy's instruction."
