Oh, and I love to chase down a fly ball. 
Why do you love teaching? I continued to play softball in college because I wanted to coach and teach. I always admired my coaches, even the tough ones, and I wanted to invest in my kids in that way.

Make Room for FPT

As you enter Fury Academy this week, you will notice some pretty big changes.  Cages have been moved around, the tee area is partitioned off, and there is a huge fenced in area where there used to hang a long cage.  As most of you probably know, FFA North experienced a fire 2 weeks ago.  Fury Performance Training was left homeless due to smoke and water damage.  The Fury owners and founders have decided to move FPT back to its original home starting this Sunday, April 22nd.  We are excited to have Coach Green's energy back in our building, but there will need to be some changes in facility structure.  The biggest change is space is more limited.  There will be students and instructors in just about every corner of the building Sunday through Friday.  For safety purposes, parents and siblings will be asked to stay in the designated seating area in front of the bathrooms and upstairs above the bathrooms.  Also, students and catchers will need to wait to enter the training floor until their training session begins.  It will take some time to get used to these changes, but the facility will be a much safer place if everyone works together.  Fury management and staff appreciate your cooperation.
