“You can’t hit what you can’t see. Hit the ball in front of your body. Swings that make contact in front of the body cause damage.”
For two decades, Joey Gomes has coached and developed top baseball talent around the North Bay Area including Sonoma County (Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, Windsor, Rohnert Park, Cotati, Petaluma and more), Napa County, Marin County and nationwide upon custom request. At his Santa Rosa, California baseball training facility, Joey offers private individual baseball hitting lessons and targeted group training sessions helping players improve their performance with an effective results-driven approach to teaching.
“If you don’t like what’s going on, practice better.”
“Joey Gomes is one of the most impactful coaches I’ve ever had in baseball. I learned more about hitting in a short time with him than I had in years. Joey taught me about an entirely new side of hitting and completely changed my mindset when I think of the word “hitting.” He helped me become a much better hitter without even making a single physical adjustment to my swing. Most coaches will try and make baseball seem really complex, where as Joey does the opposite. He taught me to make baseball simple, and that made me a much better player. Joey also treats me like a player that he’s coached for years, and it’s really nice to know I have a mentor like him that I can turn to whenever I need. I can confidently say that without Joey I would not be able to have the success that I’ve had. I would strongly encourage anybody to hit with Joey if you can because I can guarantee that he will make you a better hitter.”

“Joey Gomes is one of the most knowledgeable hitting instructors I’ve come across. When Joey talks hitting everything just seems to make sense. The mentality that he teaches made me a much better hitter at the plate from understanding quotes like, ‘Nobody is guarding you at the dish’ and ‘PartyOutFront.®’ He tells it how it is and I would recommend any hitter wanting to get better to hit with Joey. He will make you a better hitter if you’re willing and able! “

“I started hitting with Joey when I was 13 and it is one of the best decisions of my life. Joey is the real deal and knows what it takes to instruct a Division 1 big league hitter. He is always fun to be around and get better with!”

“The other thing that we would always talk about, is being comfortable in an uncomfortable situation,” Gomes said. “And this is where Spenny excelled tremendously. It’s something that we like to say, (it) is not necessarily that that guy’s clutch, but that guy can control his heart rate. That’s huge.”
