 "My wife and I have always believed in having a strong base in the fundamentals of whatever sport you are playing. My son started batting lessons with Angel at 8, giving him a solid batting foundation. He  instructs by breaking down movements, repetition (muscle memory), and putting it back together. Along with mechanics, he  also gets the players to think about the situation and teach them how to react which is invaluable. He instructs through positive feedback and respect, making it an enjoyable learning experience. For him it's about the love of the game, and that is very clear. Our son looks up to Angel as a mentor and always looks forward to his lessons."

"Angel has been providing instruction to my two sons since the Fall of 2013. I have seen a significant improvement in each boy's pitching and batting abilities which has carried nicely onto the playing field. In addition to high level instruction, Angel is a good guy and a pleasure to be around. I am looking forward to seeing my kids continue to develop with his help."

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Angel for many years. Angel was Nick's safe place during a difficult time. He was being bullied and Angel always gave him good advice. Nick is very lucky to have a very dedicated individual  to work with him to improve and grow with. It is because of Angel's dedication and hard work Nick is able to play the game he loves."

"Angel has been working with my 2 kids for 4 months. I have seen tremendous strides forward in their skill at the plate. We have had other instructors but none with the skill and professionalism that Angel has demonstrated.  Angel has a great rapport with the kids, which is just as important as the level of skill he brings to the lesson."

"Our Middle School age son has been working with Angel over the past year and a half. We have been so happy with the boost of confidence it has given him. Angel has patiently, encouraged him while helping him to improve his batting.  I would highly recommend him to teach any young person looking to boost their technique and confidence. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable, genuinely enjoys working with kids and cares about their improvement. The time our son has spent with Angel has helped him tremendously."

“Angel was an outstanding major leaguer. Working with him over the last three years has been great.  His knowledge of the game is outstanding. His approach to hitting is very sound. He works with hitters well to give them a sound approach, good stance, balance, grip, timing and rhythm. This leads to a productive swing. He has good patience and works great with kids.”

“I have been going to Angel for two years now. Before going to Angel I struggled with understanding my swing, but now I am able to feel when I’m doing something wrong. Angel is able to break things down in order for me to understand the fundamentals. Not only does he help me with my batting, but he has also helped me as a person. I am one of five Charmers that work with Angel and I couldn’t be happier! Having a quality coach like Angel has made a huge difference in my softball career.”

"As a friend and an ex teammate of Angel Echevarria the one thing I will point out about him other than his knowledge for this game of baseball, is that he cares and is passionate. I met him as teenager in high school playing against each other and then teammates with the Colorado Rockies. He was the first to teach me about the importance of routines and being prepared. His talents as a good hitter over shadowed his excellent outfield play. What drew me to Angel was his heart and how much he cared about people. Presently, I am a Rehab Pitching Coordinator with the Oakland Athletics and to this day we are still good friends and I value his opinions and knowledge for the game of baseball. My friend for life and I will support him in all that he is a part of."
