Coach Caliendo speaking at the National High School Baseball Coaches Convention in St. Louis, Missouri got to set up shop in the lobby of the Hilton hotel. He had a candid discussion with Kevin Wilson, Hitting Consultant to Major League players, as well as his partner Joe Ferraro, a 19-year High School coach and formerly the youngest college baseball coach in NCAA history at 21. Together, they host a podcast called KWB Radio. In addition, Ferraro has interviewed some of the world's best minds on his podcast One Percent Better. Kevin and Joe also spoke at the convention in “Hitting is a Conversation.” It was a fabulous talk, and you can hear some of the items they discussed on this podcast. These three podcasts and baseball development experts sit down to discuss various topics in the worlds of managing, coaching, hitting and so much more.

Kevin Wilson

For more than a decade, I have been working behind the scenes as a private hitting consultant to some of the best hitters in Major League Baseball. In 2013, I had the once in a lifetime opportunity of being the hitting coach for the USA Baseball 18U National Team. We beat Japan for the Gold medal at the IBAF World Cup in Taichung, Taiwan.

I am passionate about giving engaging talks with coaches and players in the baseball world, in addition to being a keynote speaker for Fortune 500 companies. My unique principles have influenced numerous leaders, coaches and teams. I am passionate about speaking on a variety of topics (leadership, purpose, WHY and relationship management) based on my Amazon #1 Best-Selling books “The #GoodBatting Book” and “Finding Clarity: A Mindful Look Into the Art of Hitting.” My principles have been put to test by numerous MLB players, coaches and corporate leaders. I pride myself on delivering engaging presentations that are customized to meet your goals.

In addition, I co-host KWB Radio podcast with my best friend Joe Ferraro.
