Meet Mike Sedberry
Jack Trainor, Fort Lauderdale, Florida High School Baseball Head Coach
4 Time Broward Co, Florida Coach Of The Year (6th largest school district in the US)
Past President Of High School Baseball Coaches In The State Of Florida
With the combination of pitcher, hitter and outfielder Mike Sedberry won awards for being the best baseball player in Broward County Florida, the best player in the State of Florida, the best player in the Florida High School All Star game and Mike was also the best player I ever coached in my 21 years of coaching. During his 3 years he hit over .340, struck out over half the hitters he faced, had an amazing career ERA of 0.55 and set an all time Broward County record of 28 wins against only 3 losses. Mike's pitching was so above everyone else it reminded me of a combination of two hall of fame pitchers, Tom Seaver and Greg Maddux.
David Stanford, Fort Lauderdale High School, Florida catcher for 4 years
Played baseball at McLennan Community College and Baylor University
I was Mike Sedberry's catcher for 4 years in High School and knew he was a pretty darn good pitcher but never realized how good he was until I played in College. Mike was the best pitcher with better control I ever caught including College. He ended up being the best pitcher in the State of Florida and threw only 3 pitches. He had an 88 mph fastball that ran, a change up and a curve ball no one could hit. The difference with Mike was he had command of all of his pitches and could throw them where he wanted on any count. I just saw Mike at a reunion for the first time in 40 years and showed him a video of my son pitching and he told me he is going to have arm trouble if he keeps pitching that way (balancing and throwing over the top). I stepped back, looked at Mike and told him our son is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. Mike said that's ridiculous if your son was pitching this way he would very likely have no arm problems, ironically we heard the same thing from his orthopedic surgeon. Our son has a legitimate shot at playing Division 1 baseball in Texas or Oklahoma. After talking with Mike I realized he is teaching the correct pitching fundamentals and arm care which is why when my son finishes rehab we are flying Mike to Texas so he can work with him.
ob Hely, Fort Lauderdale High School, Florida
Played four years baseball and football at Wake Forest University
Fifth round draft choice of the Milwaukee Brewers
It is with a great deal of pleasure that I write this for Mike Sedberry as a personal baseball instructor for hitting and especially pitching. Personally I had the opportunity to play both baseball and football at the D1 level at Wake Forest University as well as being a fifth round draft pick out of high school by the Milwaukee Brewers. I had the pleasure of playing both baseball and football with Mike at Fort Lauderdale High School in Florida. I have to say Mike was way ahead of his time as a high school player, prior to him having an extremely successful college career at Marshall University. Having had an opportunity to play with and against some extremely talented baseball players, I have to say Mike was as good as the top players I had the chance to compete with and against. His knowledge and dedication to baseball was second to none, but more importantly, he is the type of individual you would like to mentor your young athletes, a great role model. I highly recommend Mike as a developmental coach, for sports and in developing character to your children. Bob Hely Wake Forest '79
Mike Sedberry is a hitting and pitching specialist. He played baseball for 20 years, winning numerous awards and was selected the high school baseball athlete of the year for the State of Florida in 1975. Mike played High School baseball for Fort Lauderdale High, a 4A school in Broward County, the sixth largest school district in the nation, with approximately thirty High Schools. He was all county twice and all state. Against the best teams in South Florida, Mike, as a pitcher had the most wins of any pitcher in Broward County history with a record of 28 wins with only 3 losses, and a career ERA of 0.55, in 253 innings he allowed only 20 earned runs. On average, per seven innings he gave up three hits, struck out twelve hitters and gave up one walk. He was just as good as a hitter, Mike had a .340 average in High School against the best pitchers in South Florida. In 1975 he was the MVP of the State All star game.
He was a four year starter for Marshall University from 1976-1979. He finished third on the all time wins list with a career 14 wins and 7 losses, and is still listed on Marshall's all time wins list. Marshall was ranked 16th in the Nation in 1978 and they were one win from going to the College World Series.
More importantly to you, Mike has a strong passion for teaching and helping students reach their full potential. Mike has spent over a thousand hours studying video of the best Major League Baseball and Team USA fastpitch softball pitchers and hitters, to learn exactly what they do differently that makes them stand out from the rest.
Mike Sedberry has found that the mechanics of the very best hitters in baseball and fast-pitch softball, are virtually the same. The problem is over 99% of instructors and coaches do not teach what great hitters actually do in their swing.
Mike Sedberry has created a five step Hitting System that will help every hitter become more successful, whether you are just beginning to playing in college. You will learn step by step what the greatest hitters actually do in their swing. Learn how they are able to hit the ball so powerful, with many more line drives, consistently.
Mike has also spent over a thousand hours studying video of Major League and Team USA Fastpitch softball pitchers with long successful careers and no arm problems. These pitchers all have the same mechanics in common and their body takes precedence over their arm for producing velocity. We see too many young and older pitchers, in baseball and fastpitch softball, start getting sore arms more frequently just because of their mechanics and what they have been taught. Mike will show you the proper mechanics of the top level pitchers, how they add speed, ball movement and accuracy.
Mike Sedberry's mission:
Each student will learn the exact mechanics used by the very best baseball and fastpitch softball hitters and pitchers to help make them much more successful and have more fun in the process.
