#1513- Interview with MLB Player Eric Byrnes (from Moneyball fame) – Special Episode

I had the pleasure of interviewing Eric Brynes, a very passionate player & former Major League baseball player.

Eric talks to us about his journey as a pickleball player, his book and more!

The beauties of our pickleball is seeing many folks with different backgrounds, all playing this awesome sport.

During this episode, Eric talks about various concepts I think you’re going to find super interesting. One of them is that we sometimes fight with our students or with players in terms of understanding that they are, in fact, athletes.

Listen to the full episode as Eric also talks about how he takes care of his body, why positioning matters and lot’s of other awesome stuff, including how he puts himself in a position to succeed.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
