Shannon Gamewell - Fastpitch Softball Pitching Instructor

Formerly with Arkansas Fastpitch Academy, Shannon Gamewell trained and then instructed with Roy "Burly" Burlison. Shannon has trained some of the best talent in Arkansas that compete at all age and skill levels. His understanding of pitch mechanics is superceded, only, by his ability to teach those mechanics.

After a move to the Florida Panhandle Shannon is back in Arkansas and has been training at The Hit Zone in Ward. In the short time there he has been a part of many success stories. One year before the USSSA Fall State Tournament Shannon began teaching an eight year old, beginner, pitcher. Through weekly instruction, hard work, and dedication she won the USSSA Fall State! That's right. After, only, one year of training she won Fall State. Not only did she win, she did it as the only pitcher. She pitched every inning of every game, including extra innings in the IF game to pull it off. He also had the pleasure of welcoming a new High School student to his crew. After a year of instruction she climbed from a Forty Five MPH fast ball to a Fifty Seven MPH fast ball, she learned three new pitches, and led her school to, a first in school history, Regional and District Championship and was one run away from taking the State title. These are just a couple of the successes that have come from the Gamewell “Fastpitch Factory”. Let Shannon help your player realize their greatest potential with his proven and powerful training methods.
