    “When my son was offered the opportunity to work with Coach Arguello he was taught the mechanics, accuracy and techniques of pitching. Equally important he gained confidence through encouragement. Coach Arguello is hands on, patient, and always willing to work with the boys any way he can. My son looks forward to each lesson.”
