He is the recipient of the number one new product of the year award, and the creator of Nemo's Speed Hitting Program, Nemo's Speed Training Bat and Nemo's Triple Hitting Tee. Three teams using his hitting program have won the state baseball and softball championships. Several of Nemo's baseball players have been drafted into the Pro's and numerous softball protégés have received scholarships to play at the collegiate level. The San Francisco Giants and the New England Riptides Women's Professional Softball Team have used Nemo's Speed Training Bats.
The All-Skills camp for the 12 and under group is still scheduled for June 8-9 and the 13 and older session takes place from June 10-11. The camp will last from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. (with a lunch break provided) and costs $70.
