Dan Gazaway has instructed over 3,000 pitchers in Utah during the last ten years since starting The Pitching Academy. Coach Gazaway has been involved in baseball for the last 23 years as a pitcher and pitching coach. He has a passion for instructing pitchers and it shows in the way he relates with his athletes and how they excel as pitchers. Since he was ten, unlike many ten year old pitchers, he has been an avid student of pitching mechanics. He began taking pitching lessons from the greatest pitching instructors at that time that are still very well known today in the baseball community. Because of the influence of many of his baseball mentors, he has been fortunate to help many pitchers play collegiate level baseball and achieve their goals.
