THANK YOU!

Sean Hard – Joined 2015 (Boston College)

Sean initially joined RPP in 2015 and during the next 6 years demonstrated a commitment and consistency in training that propelled him to the front of the MLB Draft.  In 2021, during this senior year, Sean advanced his HS team at St. Joe’s  to the state championship where they won the New Jersey State Non-Public A Group Tournament.  He topped out at 95 mph at the final game of the year and was also named New Jersey Player of the Year.

“RPP has been both of my son’s second home for the better part of 5 years. From injury recovery and injury prevention to strength training and pitching, RPP has been instrumental in all of their successes on and off the field. Nunzio, Bahram, Phil and team are the best around!”

Chase Barley – Joined 2017 (Lafayette)

Chase is a great example of an athlete who trained and pitched at RPP throughout his high school years all under one roof… Best way to explain his success is his consistency and commitment to our programming and his craft on a year round basis.  Chase touched 91 this past summer prior to leaving for college.

“My son Chase started training at RPP during the fall of his high school freshman year. He was a tall, skinny left handed pitcher throwing in the low 70’s and he was also recovering from an injury. All he knew was that he wanted to be a college pitcher. Three years later, after training at RPP, Chase committed to pitch at Division I Lafayette College. RPP is more than just a gym. Over time it also became his extended family. Just prior to leaving for college this summer, Chase was clocked at 91 MPH. He couldn’t have done any of this without the guys at RPP.”

Aidan Dolinsky – Joined 2018 (NYU)

Aidan joined RPP in October 2018, all the while commuting initially to Sloatsburg from Manhattan (not a quick trip).  During the next few years, Aidan’s commitment to excellence and improvement became a passion.  Aidan touched 91 this summer prior to starting his freshman year at NYU this fall.

“I have trained at RPP since my sophomore year in high school. The coaches and trainers provide a tremendous amount of guidance in a great training atmosphere that has been essential in preparing me for playing in college. They were a significant part of my development as a young pitcher and I would highly  recommend them without any reservations to all aspiring pitchers and players.”

John Hacker- Joined 2019 (Marist)

John joined RPP shortly after our move to Paramus, New Jersey in his sophomore year. During the next 3 years, with his commitment and consistency in training he excelled. He started at Marist this fall as a lefty chuckin’ 90.

“I first joined RPP during my sophomore year, right after they moved to NJ from NY. As a lefty, I was sitting 79-82 mph and hoping to receive a college commitment to play D1 baseball. During the next two years, with the help of strength and pitching coaches at RPP, I steadily improved my velocity and received a commitment from Marist College and touched 90 this summer, prior to arriving to campus. Being a part of RPP is like being in a family. I wouldn’t be where I am today without RPP.”

Alex Kranzler- Joined 2019 (Missouri Commit)

Alex joined RPP in 2019.  He is currently a junior at Northern Valley Old Tappan high school in New Jersey with a commitment to pitch at Missouri upon graduation. He was recently clocked at 92 mph at PG Mid Atlantic.

“My son Alex has been training and pitching at RPP since 2019, when he was a 9th grader. He’s had tremendous success as a young pitcher and last year committed to Missouri where he’ll be continuing his athletic and academic career. Alex wouldn’t be where he is today without his training at RPP.”

Brendan Lysik- Joined 2019 (Texas Tech)

Brendan started his collegiate career at Texas Tech this fall, a top 5 program in the US. He touched 94 his senior year in high school and finished the year as New Jersey State Champ with St. Joe’s HS.

“I began my training at RPP during my sophomore year in high school. They opened my eyes to a whole new world of training. Through years of weight training and throwing at RPP, I was able to put on 10 MPH on my fastball and receive a commitment to play at Texas Tech. There’s truly no better place to train if you’re an aspiring college baseball player!”

Thomas Santana- Joined 2020 (Columbia Commit)

Thomas joined RPP the summer between his sophomore and junior years. He has pitched and strength-trained here ever since. He learned about RPP from the Columbia University pitching coach, who had told him “that’s where you should go”. Thomas committed to Columbia last November. He touched 91 mph this past summer.

“RPP was a game-changer for our son Thomas. No other workout regimen or personalized coaching produced the same level of tangible results – from strength to nutrition to mental development. RPP has helped him to compete at a higher level.”
