Success in anything requires drive and that drive is fueled with passion.
Our son, Kaden, always had a love for the game of baseball. In a very competitive baseball town, we all knew he would have to work hard, improve each year, and make every opportunity count. As a baseball coach myself in Mount Pleasant, I knew as Kaden entered his early teens, there was a need for an outside, and more experienced voice to take over in his coaching.
I met Coach Gansrow on a baseball field (of course), got to know him, and witnessed his coaching style and great passion for coaching. His approach is positive and encouraging. He is detailed and thorough. The mood is often light, but disciplined and focused. Tim has brought a staff together at PPA that shares his vision and execution of that vision.
Fitness is a key component to an athlete's success and our son has definitely benefitted from the training made available along with the PPA baseball program. On the baseball field, Kaden has benefitted tremendously from his involvement in the PPA travel team program, the excellent coaching, camaraderie, and sportsmanship.
Kaden rose from the ranks of a MPRD Rec baseball player to playing 5 years of Baseball at Wando High School. He was part of the 2015 State Championship team. In 2016 Kaden earned the opportunity to play college baseball, and commited to South Georgia State College. in 2017, he had had a successful first year at SGSC and looks forward to his future in baseball.
Every level of baseball requires an amplified love and passion for the game. We thank and credit Coach Tim and the PPA staff for helping Kaden on his journey...physically, mentally, and in further encouraging his passion and love for the game of baseball!
