Scott Schneider is a former professional pitcher and started his coaching career in 2008. Currently, he’s coaching professional baseball for a MLB organization (pitching and rehab) while residing in Gilbert, AZ. Scott has coached at every level from the highest level of pro ball to high school and youth.
After playing 4 years of Division 1 baseball at Virginia Commonwealth University and Norfolk State University, Coach Scott was selected by the Anaheim Angels in the 2000 draft. He went on to pitch 9 years professionally and in 2006 set league records for Saves in a season and Game Finishes.
After Coach Scott finished playing baseball he went back to school and proceeded to earn a Bachelor’s Degree from ASU with Summa Cum Laude honors and a Masters of Science in Management from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business. He also has certifications from Driveline in Coaching Fundamentals and Pitch Design, as well as the OnBaseU Certification.
“Coach Scott adds to the exceptional coaching staff we have at FS21 and having him on board is phenomenal. We share the same philosophy in arm care and making certain our players are ready when the time comes for those college opportunities. Our goal at FS21 is to help our players become top 1% talent, and the right coaches leading them to success is the only way to get there,” says Michael Yanke, FS21 Baseball CEO/GM.
Coach Scott's coaching philosophy is a guided self-discovery approach of the individual as they grow through their developmental process. There isn’t a set way to succeed, and the process is an ongoing ever changing journey. He’s a body mechanics guru, understanding where and how to help players make fundamental changes to increase velocity and accuracy, while maintaining a foundation of long-term care and potential. Coach Scott will lead all arm development at FS21 in addition to the pitching program of the organization.
