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!
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “Thank you for setting up this camp, I believe it was in my opinion one of the Top five that John has attended. 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!”
Classes and Private Lessons Coach Wagner from TZAcademy really helped me this winter. After just a short period of time working with him, he helped me tremendously. I now throw 90 mph and I am on the way to faster speeds by focusing on just a few things that he asked me to do. He filmed me with high speed video to pinpoint exactly where I needed to focus. Then he gave me a list of exercises and things to do during my workouts and bullpens. I am really thankful that I found out about him.

Classes and Private Lessons I am writing you today to let you know how the Command trainer we ordered from Oates Specialties has improved our son William’s pitching command and accuracy. We had the pleasure of driving down to train with Jim early this year, and William was introduced to the trainer at Jim’s facility. Jim told us of the evolution of the trainer as it was used at Ron Wolforth’s ranch in Texas. William has been to the ranch twice, but it was not used in the 3 day boot camps.
After visiting Jim I ordered the trainer. I was hesitant to order another “weapon” to add to William’s arsenal. He was at the age where it was hard to get him to use the gear on a regular basis. He wanted instant results without putting in the “work”. Even Ron’s videos of William’s issues did not get the point across. Fast forward to setting up the trainer in the back yard. William finally got instant results from hitting the target on the trainer. It was better than paying for a coach! He has been out using the trainer between games, sometimes in the dark with his phone blaring Eminem for all the neighbors to hear. Yesterday he pitched a full 6 innings with no pain, striking out 15 in those innings with no walks. He has never stayed on the mound this long with this kind of success. AND, he was radar’d at 75 mph with a friend’s pocket radar. For a 12 year old I can only credit you three (Samantha, take some credit too!) for helping William regain his command, arm health and mental ability to stay on the mound.
Thanks again for being there when I emailed you, ordered from you and visited you. You guys are all the best there is.

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.
