Coach Jeff is a husband and father of 6 year-old Jeffrey. He began playing organized baseball in 1975, and has played at just about every level since that time. He was a three-year starter for his high school team at shortstop, and went on to play third base at Purdue University for the only team in school history to make it to the College World Series Regional in Starkville, Mississippi. He also played semi-professional baseball for the Royals and had two try-outs with the Cincinnati Reds and one with the St. Louis Cardinals. Since his playing days, he has coached at several different levels, including high school and little league. Coach Jeff's love and enthusiasm for the game is evident with every class he teaches.
