Since 2000, John has coached Little League for the Annapolis Baseball Club and the Severna Park Green Hornets. His two sons give him the opportunity to work with the next generation of baseball stars by teaching them the fundamental skills of the game while also imparting the importance of good sportsmanship and respect for the game as well.

While mentoring the youth in the art of baseball, John continues to perform at a competitive level in the Chesapeake MSBL as both a disciplined manager and player for the Chesapeake Pirates.
