James Evans has spent most of his life in baseball as a player, a coach, and now as an owner and Advisory Board Member of the National Pitching Association. James started his journey with the NPA when he met NPA co-Founder Tom House at a baseball camp in Florida. “After one day at that camp in ’94, I knew I had to be a part of the NPA. I put what I learned at that camp into practice and am still seeing the results of those learnings today!”
What followed was a relationship with Tom House that exists to this day. Tom has this to say about James. “James is a great learner, teacher and coach. He knows the NPA methodology, the science, and the instructional techniques to not only make great pitchers, but great athletes. I can’t see every young player in this country, so it is great to have James out there taking on some of the load to ensure players around the country get the best information and coaching available.”
Besides being a student of Tom’s and an NPA Certified Coach for the last 10 years, James’ career in baseball includes the following achievements:
- Instructor for Largest baseball and softball camp in country based in Florida. 1992
- Director for Largest baseball and softball camp in country based in Florida. 1993 – 1997 Worked with players from around the United States and Canada, Germany, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, and Australia who came to Florida location.
- Conducted camps in 42 of the 50 states and Canada working with numerous players that got drafted and/or earned college scholarships.
