Marc LaMacchia is a 'Baseball Man'. I have had the pleasure of training and catching Marc during our off season workouts. Marc has a passion for learning the game and his work ethic is second to none. He has transferred those qualities into becoming one of the best baseball teachers in the Tampa Bay Area. He has an excellent ability to simplify the game, ensuring that all age groups can understand and mature into better baseball players.

Marc LaMacchia is the perfect person to teach your kids the game of baseball. I've had the privilege of knowing Marc for 14 years . He is passionate about the game and knows every facet of it. He can teach your kids the game and also show them how to condition themselves to avoid injuries. Marc is also a person of high character and integrity and would be a great mentor to your kids. You will not find a better teacher than Marc. I recommend him enthusiastically!

I scouted Marc through High School and College and signed him to a professional contract when I worked for the Texas Rangers. He had the skills and make-up to become a solid Major League pitcher. He posesses an advanced knowledge of the game and relates extremely well with younger players. His love for the game and level of patience is unsurpassed. If I was looking for the perfect teacher of the game for my son, Marc is who I would choose.

I am writing on behalf of Marc LaMachia. I have known Marc for over fifteen years. First, as a baseball player for our high school, East Lake High School, where he was an outstanding pitcher. He won numerous honors locally and was awarded a scholarship to Florida State University. He pitched there with great success until an arm injury interupted his playing career. After surgery and rehabilitation he signed a professional contract and played a number of years in the minor leagues and also with the Italian National Team in the World Games. He now resides and works locally in business and in baseball. Marc is highly competitive; has a great desire to succeed; and has a high degree of knowledge and skill in baseball. His work ethic is unparalleled and he works well with others. His background and character are tremendous assets in working with young players. I have seen him share his expertise with players. He is eager to pass on his knowledge because of his great love of the game of baseball. As a former high school coach with thirty-three years of experience, I would love to have Marc work with my son or grandson.

Marc has been working with my son for over 2 years, in that time he has taught him the proper mechanics of pitching as well as the situational knowledge and how to respond under pressure. For any parents with aspiring young players I highly recommend LaMacchia Baseball Instruction.

My sons have been working with Marc for over a year. In that time, I've seen tremendous improvement in their mechanics, approach, and baseball knowledge. But equally important, he's really helped them with the mental aspect of pitching, which many coaches often miss. We could not be more pleased with the progress. Thanks Coach!

Marc has worked with my twelve year old son, Noah, for several months.  While my son has had many hitting instructors, he’s never had anyone before Marc to teach him anything other than swing mechanics.  Marc has taught him to approach the plate differently based on each count and situation.  He’s become much more confident and consistent at the plate and really wants to bat with the game on the line.  That confidence serves him and the team well and has better prepared him for High School baseball.  Marc’s instruction goes far beyond the time Noah spends with him each week at his lesson.  Marc follows up with emails and phone calls to ensure that Noah is working on the things he learned that week.  It’s also apparent that Marc is truly invested in his success.  That is what sets Marc apart and we couldn’t be happier to have Noah working with him.

Marc LaMacchia has worked with EL Varsity Baseball players the past few years. He has a unique way of breaking down players both mentally and physically and then build them up with the correct skills and confidence. He has good communication with the players and has helped improved their play. Players, parents and coaches all enjoy working with Coach LaMacchia.

Marc has been working with my son (12 years old) over the past few years and has developed him into the #1 pitcher on his team. He has taught him not only the mechanics of pitching but situational knowledge and how to respond under pressure. Marc not only has the baseball knowledge and teaching skills necessary but an outstanding personalty and a caring nature that young players gravitate toward. My son looks forward to every lesson with Marc and I would highly recommend his instruction to young players interested in developing their game.

My sons consistency throwing good quality pitches has improved tremendously since Marc's insruction. He also has so much more confidence, composure every time he takes the mound no matter what the situation. Best part is my sons working hard and loving every minute.
