START YOUR ATHLETIC
WHY POLISHED PITCHING ACADEMY?
Hi everyone, my name is Kyle Von Ruden. I am a former Division I college athlete as well as a former professional baseball player. Although my MiLB career was short lived I have loads of experience through every aspect of baseball from high school, junior college, college, independent professional baseball and the childhood dream a MLB affiliated professional. I have played at just about every level and I was never the most gifted, but my passion for the game allowed me to develop skillsets that gave me an upper hand against "more talented" competition and I want to share that. In college, I was a converted short stop to a pitcher so learning became crucial. I can connect with the hardships, uncertainties and successes of young athletes. I specialize in pitching, but understand the sport in its entirety; feel free to have a look at some accolades of mine and lets bring to light those weaknesses and turn them into our strengths.
"Kyle really took the time to learn pitching. His composure and ability to throw 4 pitches for strikes made him extremely reliable."
