The mike-eliasPinkmans offer what is simply the highest-quality instruction in the area, and I know of no one who works harder at equipping their program with the latest – and best – information and technology. It will be a real pleasure to work with them and their students this off-season.

“The Pinkman Baseball Academy is a first class organization. They provide top notch instruction to assist players to reach their maximum potential. The Pinkman Academy also provides information for the players and colleges in the recruiting process. They do an excellent job in assisting the player to find a college that is the right fit for each individual player.”image003

“I think John and his family do a wonderful job of promoting baseball and pitching in the Virginia area. John is always one to look for new and innovative ways to better the game, and implements those ideas into making his academy a better place to train. The Pinkman family truly has the players’ best interests at heart, and it is without hesitation that I recommend Pinkman Baseball Academy.”

Derek Johnson

Pitching Coach, Milwaukee Brewers


“Pinkman Baseball is without a doubt one of the top baseball instructional facilities in the country. As a player and now as a coach, I have had the opportunity to learn from John, Jeff, and Pat. Their instruction has exposed me to a compassionate yet aggressive way of teaching baseball, and I hope to reflect their techniques in my own coaching style. What clearly separates Pinkman Baseball from other instructional facilities is their true desire to continue learning and growing as coaches. By continuing to learn and adapt to the changes in baseball instruction, Pinkman Baseball will always be equipped with the knowledge and expertise to provide their clients with the safest, most current and most effective instruction. I would not think twice about endorsing and recommending Pinkman Baseball to a player at any level, little league, high school, college, or professional.”image002

“Pinkman Academy is the premier instructional academy in the country. UnknownNot only do you get first-rate professional instruction, but they are one of the few places I’ve dealt with that is genuinely concerned with the individual. You will walk away from Pinkman a complete pitcher who will be ready for the next level.”
