Hello, and thank you for your interest in Travis Brown Baseball Training. I am a family man who loves sharing my passion and knowledge of the game of baseball. I have played and coached from coast to coast with my wife, Amy, by my side every step of the way. Nine years and two kids later we are looking forward to raising our son, Mesa, and daughter, Vale, in the great city of Nashville.
When I train athletes I focus on both the fundamentals and the mental aspect of the game. I share the knowledge I learned from MLB instructors that I had during my professional playing career. The way players learn and respond to coaching varies from one athlete to another. As a coach, understanding this is essential to the teaching process. I strive to connect with each player on a personal and developmental level and I'm excited to be a part of this process with you.

Also, 2011 through 2014, I helped start a travel baseball program and coached teams in the program while giving private instruction. Five players from the program went on to play in the Little League World Series and many are currently playing or have committed to play at the D1 Level.
