Testimonials About The Ranch™ Training

Alan Jaeger

“What a golden opportunity it would be for any pitcher to get this kind of quality instruction. I am jealous! I want to be a student at the camp”!

Owner, Jaeger Sports Academy

Trevor Bauer

“The information provided opened the door to a path that has transformed my career and allowed me to achieve my lifelong dream of becoming a professional baseball player”.

MLB Pitcher, Cleveland Indians

CJ Wilson

“Ron educates way better than other coaches. He’s one of the most well-versed guys I’ve ever encountered. Usually, a coach says, ‘Do this,’ and you say, ‘Why?’ And he says, ‘Because I said so.’ You’re not teaching someone at that point”.

Former MLB Pitcher, Anaheim Angels


Brent Strom

“Ron develops velocity, but it’s much more than that. He promotes arm health, control, command. He combines all of these different aspects of pitching, trying to overcome a lot of misteachings by uninformed coaches. He’s also an excellent communicator, with a unique way of encapsulating information and making it usable”.

MLB Pitching Coach, Houston Astros

Scott Kazmir

“To be able to go somewhere and work on the mechanics and do certain things, certain drills, to really get kind of in tune with your body and just relearn the mechanics of pitching a baseball. That’s what he provides out there, and it really helped”.

MLB Pitcher, Atlanta Braves

Raul Ibanez

“I figured if he knew so much about pitching, he must know something about hitting too. He gets results for 10-year-olds, and he gets results for major leaguers. And when you can do that, I think everyone has to take notice”.

Former MLB Player, New York Yankees
