Podcast #49: Assessing Hitters to Maximize Performance with FDU’s Assistant Coach Ethan Newton

Ethan Newtong

My guest today is Ethan Newton, Assistant Coach at Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU). He joined (actually re-joined) the Knights last year after having spent over a year here at RPP as the Director of Hitting. Join us as we discuss:

    • Value in assessments
    • Movement strategies and hitting mechanics
    • Importance of the middle

Prior to RPP, Ethan was an assistant coach on Rob DiToma’s staff at FDU. He arrived at FDU after spending the past two seasons as a volunteer assistant at University of Hartford. As a player, Ethan played four years of collegiate baseball at Allegany and Ohio University.

As a side note, one year in, FDU hitters are having an amazing season with runs per game up nearly 30% with an overall team record of 26-16-1.
