Description

Did you know that BASEBALL is America's true past time? Football is cool and everything. But baseball is really where it's at!

Baseball fans come in all shapes and sizes. My very own fiancée was once just a casual baseball observer with little knowledge of the intricacies of the game. Now, after more than 5 years of being together, she is a BASEBALL FANATIC! I ask her when the games are. I ask her who is pitching. It's fantastic!

And you can learn to love the game just the same. With this course, you'll understand all of the basics of the game including:

  • The Field
  • Positions
  • Scoring Runs & How to Win the Game
  • Equipment
  • Major League Baseball structure
  • Outs, Innings, Games
  • Types of Hits
  • Fielder's Choices
  • Pitching & Defense
  • Wild Pitches, Passed Balls, & Errors
  • Strategy
  • Types of Pitches
  • Hitting, Pitching & Field Stats

As you can see, there is a lot that goes into the game of baseball. And this course is the perfect way to learn to love the game!

UNDERSTAND. WATCH. ENJOY.

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
