Ryan Hinchely -

Drafted By The Chicago White Sox 

Started at Fastball USA at Age 15

"What he has learned at Team Fastball helped him get recruited and earn a spot on Butler's baseball team.

The key difference between playing for Team Fastball versus other travel teams is that the coaches at Team Fastball work on the skills and attitude that makes one a better baseball player. It is not just about winning a game."

Tony Diviesti 
Mike's Dad. 

Che-Hsuan Lin and Kuo-Hua Kao
both star players in the CPBL and both have played professional baseball in the USA.   Including the Mariners and Orioles. 

Made the trek to Fastball USA in November 2018. 

"Before coming to Fastball USA, I was a freshman throwing 72mph.

As a kid I was taught to throw with good mechanics 
and never to just let it fly.

 In about 2 years, I have gained 14 mph on my fastball because of the great training.

I would definitely recommend Fastball USA to anyone who wants to work hard and has goal of playing at the next level.   It is a great way to specifically train for baseball and improve your game in the right way."

Anyssa Iliopoulos and Mary Iliopoulos Chosen to Play on the Greek National Softball Team 

"In 6 months I went from throwing 82mph in summer and then I got up to 90mph by winter. It was absolutely amazing when it happened.  Fastball USA opened up doors of opportunities."

"Fastball USA  Prepared Me For Pro Ball"
Just wanted to let you know that we do nearly all the same arm care here With KC as we did at Fastball USA.

We do numerous variations of all of the arm care on an everyday basis, and also we do ALOT of the flexibiltiy and pre workout warmups that we did at fastball. Fastball USA certainly prepared me for pro ball. Currently I have over 100 innings on my arm this year, and I have to thank you for teaching me the importance of arm care. 

In the past, my arm would usually be in pain around this time of year, and I would be experiencing "dead arm". But currently my velocity is still sitting in the 90-93 range and topping around 95mph. 

Once again, I just wanted to thank you for everything, and please continue to stress the importance of arm care, flexibility, and good old fashioned hard work to the rest of the guys.

Thank You,      
Mike Giovenco (KC Royals)

Watch 7th Round Draft Pick Simeon Lucas Talk About Mike Ryan's Fastball USA 

Congrats to Nick Juaire on his committment to play at the University of Notre Dame Next Year.  

Hard work pays off! 

"We are very thankful to have Gavin train with you at Fastball USA youth class ever since he was 7 years old back in the fall of 2015."

Your guidance on mindset, life lessons and training techniques helped Gavin build up his confidence and physical tools (athleticism, speed, hitting power and throwing velocity) needed in order to stand out and compete against the skilled and physically bigger kids in his age group at any tryout or tournament.

Even when he first started, the age adjustable home run derby game you introduced is something he always has a lot fun with and build his interest in the game with those aggressive explosive confident swings just like the big leaguers.

The mixed aged training atmosphere at Fastball USA group classes is really special and always challenge the kids to challenge themselves to improve 1% each session with iron sharpening irons, younger kids looking up the the older kids to see how they do things.

We highly recommend Coach Mike Ryan and Fastball USA to any other baseball parents who is serious about helping their kid develop in the game. This program has been a gamechanger for Gavin's development.

Will your athlete be next?

206 students have thrown or hit a baseball 90mph or more. 



The Truth is Doors of Opportunity Will Open for .... 

Those who throw faster, hit harder, and move quicker will get opportunities that others will NOT get.  It doesn't matter how many travel ball games your team is winning if you have an average arm, average quickness, and lack hitting power.   Scouts look for players with the BIG 3. 

When it comes to College Scholarships, Draft Picks, and playing opportunities, they will almost always give first shot to the players who can throw faster, move quicker, and hit harder.  The Question is what are you doing to improve these areas, and do you have both a short term and a long term plan for develpment?
