I worked with Coach Bowness starting when I was in middle school and continued to work with him throughout my professional career. There are a number of reasons why I chose to work with Coach Bowness over so many years. He allowed me to participate in the instruction. I was not told how to pitch or hit. We worked on expanding my areas of strength while improving on my weaknesses. Also, Coach Bowness always took a responsible approach to development. There was never a session when we didn’t warm up and cool down, and he always managed my workload in the context of the bigger picture. Finally, Coach Bowness is always looking for ways to improve himself. He is constantly increasing his knowledge of the game and improving on what he brings to the players he instructs. He expects a certain amount of hard work and respect from his players. His players can expect the same in return. – Joe Martinez 11 year professional baseball player.
