"My son has been fortunate to work with Elliot almost every off season since 2007. Elliot is a talented instructor and is able to relate to players of all ages and skill levels from preteens to professionals. I couldn't give a higher recommendation!"
"As a longtime sportscaster I had the opportunity to first watch Elliot Johnson in his pro baseball environment. His passion, talent and personable ways became a major league asset. With him available to instruct my sons in the offseason we jumped at the unique opportunity. What a great decision. Elliot combined his vast knowledge and communication skills into very fun and impactful times that produced immediate improvement. Without question, Nick and Brad wouldn't be where they are today had it not been for Elliot."
