Testimonials

“I have been working with Chris Newell since I was 14 years old. Chris really knows his stuff. I still often hear Chris’ instructions in my mind – especially when I need to make corrections to my swing. Chris is a great hitting instructor! I am grateful not only for what he has done to help me grow as a hitter, but also for his friendship, his support and his advice as I continue to develop in professional baseball.”

“Chris Newell helped me achieve my goals of playing college baseball at The University of Michigan and getting drafted professionally by the Tampa Bay Rays.  Without Chris I don’t know where I would be today.  He’s the BEST in the business”

“Playing college and professional baseball has always been a dream of mine.  I knew that if I was going to achieve these goals, I needed to work with the best-so my parents reached out to Chris Newell.  Not only did he help land a Division 1 scholarship, but also helped me get drafted in the 6th round.”

“I have trained with Chris since I was 10 yrs old. My dream of playing college baseball began when Chris spoke at one of my practices, he convinced me that with hard work in the classroom and on the field I could play at the college level. After 8 yrs of training with Chris, my dream is now a reality. He not only is a tremendous hitting/fielding instructor he has been a great mentor. Chris was very instrumental in my recruiting process and I can’t thank you enough for your help and support.

“Chris Newell is the best there is! His track record speaks for itself. He has a unique ability to make hard work easy and fun, while instilling confidence in each of his players.”

Pat Verbeek – 20 yr NHL Player – Assistant GM for Detroit Red Wings

“I know Chris as a tremendously hard working instructor who will always give young players his best. I wish I would have had him on my coaching staff at Michigan.”

Geoff Zahn – Former Head Coach University of Michigan

“Chris Newell is the best hitting instructor I ever had, and I never even played for him. He breaks the swing down and has an uncanny way of actually making you feel what you are doing. I reach out often to Chris to pick his brain when I’m working with young hitters.”

Dave Bergman – 1984 Detroit Tigers World Series Champion

“Chris is the reason my son continued playing baseball past high school. A simple phone call to one of my former teammates put me in touch with Chris. Not only did Chris give my son the proper foundation as a hitter, but his evaluation and connections allowed Erik to play at Michigan State and later drafted by the Philadelphia Philles.”
