Cavaiani on Maoz: "I learned of ET from a player I was doing a lesson with, and I can say it is the best lesson of the thousands of lessons I've done. The kid had told me about his 'other hitting coach' who taught him a drill very similar to the one I was teaching him. I did my research about ET and found him and met with him. It's one of the best things I've done as I haven't hired a better baseball coach in 10 years. ET's love of the game, combined with his passion for helping kids, made him a no brainer to add to my staff. He is relentless, a tireless worker, and just loves baseball. I'm lucky to have him on my staff helping the kids in our program. The coaches on my staff, especially ET, have had such a huge impact on everything this program is and stands for. If you have a son who loves baseball and wants to get better, there is no one better than ET."
