Baseball is very much like life, it ebbs and flows with moments of intensity, moments of success and even more moments of failure.

In addition to athleticism, to be successful in baseball, athletes must have confidence, humility, emotional control, great work ethic, and the ability to support as well as trust teammates and coaches.

At Le Sandlot, we have assembled an all-star multi-disciplinary team who's purpose is to provide athletes with all of the tools necessary to be their best both on and off the field. From nutrition to strength & conditioning; from mental coaching to position specific skills coaching; from equipment fitting to physical therapy; from technical performance analysis to recruiting & communications training; our team can cover all the bases to ensure that athletes progress towards achieving their goals.

Mash has been playing baseball and softball for the past 38 years, and has been coaching minor baseball for the past 8 years in the Town of Mount Royal. In 2016, he and fellow townie Jon Konigsberg created the MRO baseball committee and grew participation to almost 200 kids in 2018, most of which were participants at the younger ages, solidifying a great future of the sport in the MRO region. In 2016, Mash also organized an indoor winter baseball training clinic for kids that featured amazing professional coaches and special guests like former Expos left-handed pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee. 

 

In 2018, Mash decided to follow his dream of opening a specialized baseball training facility and founded Le Sandlot so he could offer baseball and softball players of all ages and skill level a place where they can improve their game and to help players to be their very best both on and off the field.

Mash is fortunate to have the support of his family in this endeavour and share this experience with them.

Jamie’s background is in sport and exercise psychology and his official title is
Mental Performance Consultant (MPC), as he is a professional member of the
Canadian Sport Psychology Association. Prior to graduate school, he completed his
Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at McGill and worked as a personal trainer at U.N.I
training. He highly values both physical and mental health, and regards them as key
components in helping athletes reach their full potential.


His goal is to teach his clients mental skills, which are defined as psychological
qualities that need to be acquired and/or developed in order to achieve desired
outcomes. Some examples include goal setting, imagery, and relaxation training. His
approach involves sitting down with clients one-on-one and engaging them in thought-provoking discussion, which can lead them to grow as individuals.
He has experience working with athletes in both team and individual sports, and
across a wide range of ages. He has also had success working with clients outside of
athletics; he’s helped students prepare for major exams and interviews given that the
stress associated with those endeavours mimics that of athletic competition.

 

Jamie likes to work with adolescent student-athletes who are motivated to
improve. He teaches goal-setting and time management, which are essential skills for
achieving success in the classroom and in life. He can help kids manage their time so
that they can be successful in their various pursuits while maintaining appropriate
balance in their lives.
