Dan Palmer

Dear Hit Dawg family and friends,  We have some very sad news to share. This morning (7/25) we found out that long time Hit Dawg Coach and wonderful friend, Dan Palmer, passed away this weekend. It was sudden, and very unexpected. Please allow us some time to grieve and process this, and organize going forward. Please keep his young daughter and family in your prayers.

Dan's Celebration of Life is on Tuesday, August 3rd from 3-6 PM. I have included his Celebration of Life information below for all who would like to attend.

Dan leaves behind a young daughter, named Harlee. We have started a GoFundMe account for her in memory of Dan. If you are interested in donating, here is the link. All donations will be put into a college account for Harlee. Link:

    A Baseball & Softball Academy that is Dedicated

    We are dedicated to ensuring the proper development of all kids. It does not matter your age, nor size. We start by working on the basic needs so that kids are able to compete at all levels. I learned early in my career that I could be a better baseball player by learning basic fundamentals. That is what made me into a Major League Player. I was not the biggest, nor was I the strongest. Yet, I played against Major League Players. Players need to learn how to play the game properly, so that the game becomes easier for the player to compete when he/she is not the biggest player on the field. We are dedicated to helping your child become the best player he/she can be. Hit Dawg coaches and l work on building players to prepare them for the next level of play.

    We will do the following for YOU:

    • Help Build Player's Confidence
    • Teach Proper Technique
    • Teach Proper Fundamentals
    • Ensure that Players Learn Baseball & Softball 101

    I first encountered Woot-Dog in AA. We had an instant connection and trust about hitting! His knowledge of hitting and mechanics is far above and beyond any other person I've encountered! He's helped to make me the hitter I am today and continues to help me improve on a daily basis. He breaks down swings to the individual so they can better understand their swing! And on top of all his expertise, he's an even better person!
