How many times do you get to work along side a 2x World Series Champion, minor league manager and big league coach? Bringing Al Newman on to our staff at Minnesota Baseball Academy has been a surreal experience for our players (and parents!).
To learn from the same manager who tought Torii Hunter, Christian Guzman and Jacque Jones and played alongside greats such as Dan Gladden, Gene Larkin and Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett is something that few players will ever get to experience. Whether it be a story, lessons learned from former big league games or learning some fielding gems, Newmie has taken our program to the next level.
I think what is most appealing about Al is that his goals for the players are the same as MBA's: to teach life lessons through baseball. He's a perfect fit and we look forward to working together for a long time.
