Hi, I'm Paul Magrini and I have been involved in baseball since I was 5 years old. I have been a professional since I was 18, as a player(5th round draft pick Detroit Tigers), coach, and instructor. I have worked with hundreds of kids at the youth, high school, and college levels. I have a passion for teaching the game of baseball the right way. The way baseball needs to be played.

I have put together my "Pitching For Success" program for kids so they can get the most out of their ability. I have built this program from the experience I've had as a player for 9 years and over the last 20 years working as a coach. I have seen success for kids who have made their local travel teams, varsity baseball, college baseball, and a few former clients have made it to the professional level and 2 have made it it to the biggest stage of them all: The Big Leagues!

More importantly my "Pitching For Success" program is to educate parents and kids how to keep their arms healthy. This is something I really feel strong about, being a kid who came out of high school with a lot of promise only to be hurt and on the disabled list by the time I was 20. The good thing that came from this, is I learned how to rehab and train my arm from the best, Dr. James Andrews at Health South in Birmingham Alabama. I have used this knowledge to train kids to strengthen their arms and talk about over use so that the same thing doesn't happen to them.

My goal is to make the body athletic and elastic. From there we can  build a clean, repeatable, and  powerful delivery. Clients have seen jumps of 3-8 miles an hour on the gun. More importantly their command and "stuff" has improved dramatically, and they were successful in getting people out.

I want to educate people on what it takes to have success on the mound. There are alot of gimmicks and false promises out there.  Trying to force the body to throw hard only leads to injury. If it were that easy everybody would throw hard! It takes good old fashion hard work and allowing the body to see how easy it can throw hard.
 
There are 3 factors involved for a pitcher:  Mechanics, Workload and Rest, and Physical Conditioning. These are the 3 things that I concentrate on in my program. I am a big believer in the proper use of the lower half of the body and hip transfer, which is a detail most pitching coaches miss. I also believe strongly in the proper use of the front side or "glove" side. Again I think this is another detail that is taught wrong. Combine this with fastball command and I think a young pitcher is on his way to a successful, healthy career.
 
Don't wait until your son has developed bad habits! It's never too early to develop a good clean delivery and throw with proper mechanics. If nothing else it will help him throw better at whatever position he plays.
 
So don't wait till it's too late! Before your son develops bad throwing mechanics and a sore arm, get trained properly with good advice and he'll be on his way to "Pitching For Success"

Paul Magrini

 

A three sport all state athlete(Football, Basketball, Baseball) at Wallington HS, Paul was drafted in the 5th round by the Detroit Tigers in the 1991 draft. He finished his high school career with a 38-8 pitching record which is the most wins in New Jersey history. He also finished with a career .375 batting average over 4 years, including hitting .435 with 5 HRs and 33 RBI as a senior.
 
Magrini went on to play 3 ½ years in the Tigers chain , before an arm injury and Tommy John surgery sidelined his career  a year and a half. He rehabbed and cameback to have a successful minor league career in 5 years of independent stops in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Souix Falls , South Dakota, Johnstown, Pennslyvania, and finally with the New Jersey Jackals. He finished with a 38-28 record with a career 3.74 ERA in 9 minor league seasons. He won 2 championships, in 1993 with the Niagara Falls Rapids (Detroit, NY-Penn league), and 1998 with the New Jersey Jackals(Northeast, independent). Magrini was 3-0 in playoff games for the Jackals in a 2 year span and won 18 games. He is a member of the Jackals 5 year Anniversary Team picked in 2002.
 
Paul’s coaching career began in 1998 as an assistant at Passaic Valley HS where they won the Passaic County Championship that year.
 
He moved on to the college ranks in the fall of 1999 to become the pitching coach at Division 1 Pace University for 2 years where he helped resurrect the program into the successful one it is today.
 
From there he took his first head coaching job at Montclair HS where they handn’t had a winning season in 10 years. Magrini got them there in his 3rd year with a 14-13 record. Four of his former players are playing college baseball currently. Three at the Division 1 level.
 
From there Magrini joined the staff at perennial power Nutley HS as an assistant for 3 years where they won 48 games and a conference title during that time.
 
He then went on to become the pitching coach at Division 1 Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck from the 2008-2009.
 
In 2015 Coach Magrini became Assistant Head Coach at Paramus Catholic HS. PC has had back to back 15 win seasons including 2 wins against state power St. Joe's of Montvale which they have never beaten and a win against state power Don Bosco in 2016. They also made a run in the prestigious Bergen County Tournament in 2016 with 2 wins and a trip to the final 8. They also lost in the Parochial A quarterfinals in 2016 to Seton Hall Prep 4-3.
The 2 year 30 wins is the most the program has had in 20 years! He looks to continue to guide them to becoming a perennial power in the future.
 

Magrini has been a professional instructor since 1997, running Paul Magrini Baseball, LLC. He has trained many top players in North Jersey. He has managed travel club teams the Field 1 Blue Sox, South Bergen Mets, and now currently his New Jersey Yankees from the 18u-14u levels playing in national tournaments across the country.
