Career profile (Text)

Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Los Angeles, California, Corey played organized baseball since the age of 12 years old. Corey has played little league, lettered three times in Varsity high school baseball, 3A All-City CIF Selection 2nd Team (1986) and earned 1st Team honors in 1987. Also lettered 2 years Varsity Basketball and even played in the H.S. band! Heavily scouted, Corey was a 16th round (398 overall) selection for the Seattle Mariners. Drafted as a Center fielder,

Corey's greatest asset at the time was his enthusiasm, strong arm, and blazing speed. He ran the 60 yard dash in 6.6 seconds. (Ken Griffey Jr. ran 6.13 and Chuck Carr a 6.18) Tops in the Mariners organization at the time. Corey sustained a knee injury 1988 that sidelined him the entire season. Corey was released by the Mariners in 1991 and didn't return to professional baseball until 1995 where he played in the Western Baseball League for 4 years.

Not new to big break, it came when he went to Taipei to play in the Taiwan Major League. The first week of regular play, Corey hit three homers and drove in seven runs to tie the TML record for a single night. Corey continued to perform and produce in Taiwan until scouts for the Seibu Lions made an offer and signed him to a contract in 1999.

Corey'sjjourney in the world through basball took him to Japan where his new teammates and opponents included Deisuke Matsuzaka, Kazuo "Kaz" Matsui, Reggie Jefferson, Tony Fernandez, Alex Cabrera, Ichiro, Tuffy Rhodes. Corey played three years in Japan where he won two consecutive Triple-Crowns batting .368, 48 homers, and 148 RBIs in 2000 and 2001. Corey signed several contracts in subsequent years in culturally diverse countries-South Korea, Mexico, Venezuela, Canada. The Calgary Vipers signed Corey in 2005.

He would become the first player in Viper history to earn the Rawlings Player of the Week Award. After his release, Corey got involved with Baseball Alberta as a learning facilitator and coached the 2008 Sherwood Park Minor Baseball Bantam team. Corey continues to prepare players in Oregon and Washington as a mentor for Northwestern Baseball Academy.

Attention those who inquire greater baseball knowledge!!

Are you tired of seeing technique and drills? Has your player been to more camps, mini-camps, recruiting events, showcases, tournaments, and club teams than you have as parents worked your day (and night) job? Do you feel as if your young protoge player has enough of the physical training, but still has not a strategy for playing consistent baseball? Finally, are you looking for a program that will instill more mental training that your young player can apply to his/her sports career and utilize for life?

I have designed a mentor program just for that purpose. It's 12 weeks long and only two hours per week. Totally structured to tailor to address present and future situations your player may encounter on AND OFF the diamond!!

We speak on a number of issues in regards to pitching, hitting, running, throwing, fielding. Topics related to hitting counts; what is it about your stance; why the grip; what are the advantages to hitting to all fields and looking for a pitch in a specific location (zone hitting)?

We also talk about "signability". What does it really mean when a college recruit/pro baseball scout hands you a business card. Basically, our mentoring program will tell you what your high school coach doesn't know and what professional scouts will not tell you!

If you are seeking more than player development, we are the group for your young player. We specialize in personal development first! Then, we work on the player.

You nor your young player can afford to miss this opportunity!

First Mental Training Challenge
Let's see what kinda brainpower you have and use in this brainteaser known as "The RiverIQ game". In order to have a clue, you gotta know the rules to get everyone from one side of the river to the other...So your success depends on reading and thinking beyond the rules-which are located in the HANDOUTS folder. Same as being a successful player in baseball as in life: You gotta understand the rules! HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK...(you'll need it!)
