2019 Elite Pitchers’ Boot Camp
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “I was thoroughly satisfied with the camp. The personalities of the two leaders were memorable and entertaining at the same time. The fact that you had older pitchers at the camp were very motivating to Jack as well. He has a tremendous base of knowledge to work from in an effort to realize his potential going forward.
I would say that the biggest “ah-ha” that both Jack and I received was the need to become a great athlete. It sunk in and I believe he’ll be willing to work at it according to the process given. I will not hesitate to have him attend in 09 if offered.”
Classes and Private Lessons Jim Wagner is an impact coach — someone who tangibly improved my son’s game. Jim refined the quality of his pitches, taught him drills that enhanced his repeatability and used astute video analysis to help Conor recognize areas of his delivery that needed improvement, which, in turn, helped Conor’s ability to self-correct on the mound. Jim’s insights also elevated the critical mental aspect of Conor’s game. In his quiet, smart and thoughtful way, Jim is one of those rare coaches that makes a true difference.

Classes and Private Lessons My daughter Anessa has been going to Jim Wagner and TZAcademy for over 4 years now. In fact, we still have his postcard that he sent after our first visit when she had just turned 7 years old. This seems like yesterday, yet Anessa has developed into a solid pitcher over the years. This is in part due to Jim and his pitching philosophy.
Jim incorporates arm care into each session which as a parent it is very important for me. Anessa plays baseball year round on a club team so it is important that she learns about arm care/ develops insight into different pitching styles and is able to stretch and take good care of herself. Jim has done this and beyond while (most of all) making it fun! Anessa loves coming to TZAcademy. She is able to set goals/reach them and have a good time while working hard. Jim has become a support to Anessa in the world of baseball and has often come to her games and inquired about how she has pitched during tournaments. He cares for his clients and above all has a true passion for his work. This shows and is very much appreciated. I highly recommend TZAcademy to anyone interested and have really enjoyed watching TZAcademy ans Anessa grow over the years!
Classes and Private Lessons I have known Jim Wagner for over 20 years. During this time, I have grown to have the upmost respect
for him. He is truly a man on a mission. I have watched him train many students, including both of my
sons. His evaluation of talent, comes from a position of knowledge equity. Jim Wagner trains in the art
of pitching, this is simply his gift. Jim looks at the individual and truly develops his/her talent, and
maintains a passionate desire, to help each individual based on his/her talents.
Jim truly runs the TZAcademy with passion and professionalism. His knowledge of the game,
from the physical aspect to the mental pre-game preparation, is outstanding. The art of pitching is more
than throwing a ball. Jim, challenges his students, to be more than a thrower, but a pitcher. With the
plethora of specialty pitching coaches in So Cal, Jim will always be at the top of my list.

It was very personal and informative, Brent and Ron were outstanding in there interaction with the young men! I even picked up a few things…. I want to thank you for throwing a good word in for John with Brent, these kids need guys like you Jim to help them achieve their dreams. So many just take the money and run and you don’t! I tip my hat my friend to you!”
