“Mike is not only an outstanding baseball coach but a terrific friend as well.  I have known Mike since my playing days at UCF when he was one of our assistant coaches.  We developed a friendship after my playing days that has lasted since that time and endured despite us living in different parts of the country.  We coached baseball together at Lake Highland Prep and Colonial HS and he has served as an unofficial scout for me when I am recruiting players from the south for my CCBC Catonsville baseball team.  Mike possesses a wealth of baseball knowledge, an innovative mind about the game, and has a keen eye for identifying baseball talent.”

“Coach George has a wealth of baseball experience at a variety of levels and has the ability to relay this to players of all ages.  He is a very effective communicator who lives and breathes baseball.  He is able to run a high level program and is just as good at one-on-one instruction.  As much as any coach I have had the fortune to coach with he is able to teach the game’s intricate details and players respond to his coaching.  Any organization would be lucky to have Coach George on staff.”
