"He's the best catcher I've seen in college baseball."

Coach Mike Martin

Former Head Baseball Coach, Florida State University

"Having been in baseball all my life (including 30 years coaching in college), Scott Hemond is the best catcher I have ever seen play and had the opportunity to he is a Coach. As Coaches, we are teachers and Scott has the innate ability to teach and instruct.  Baseball has 3 phases (offense, defense, and baserunning), all of which Scott did extraordinarily well as a player.  What is more important is that he has a "feel" for all 3 phases.  I would trust my own kids to have Scott Hemond teach them the game of baseball!"

Coach Eddie Cardieri

Former Head Baseball Coach, University of South Florida

“My experiences with Scott were fantastic! His knowledge and enthusiasm for the game made it fun, yet very informative. He pays close attention to the details, while breaking them down step-by-step. I would recommend him strongly to any baseball player looking to improve their game.”

Coach Les Miles

Former Head Football Coach, LSU

"One of the best prospects in the Oakland system is Scott Hemond. He was an All-America catcher at the University of South Florida and has an arm that has been likened to Santiago's and Alomar's."

Tim McCarver

Former MLB Catcher, Cardinals Hall of Famer, Hall of Fame Broadcaster
