Drew Bridges

Baseball Trainer

My name is Drew Bridges. I am a 21-year-old Carthage High School Graduate. I played baseball for the Mid-West Nationals, Carthage High School, and am currently playing minor league baseball for the New York Yankees. I have experience playing shortstop, third base, first base, and pitching. This past year I played for the Staten Island Yankees (short season A) and was selected to the all-star team. I have given lessons in the off-season for the past three years for hitting, pitching, and fielding. I enjoy working with players of all ages and utilizing tools and drills I have developed through my professional career. I look forward to working with you!
