Coach M on Coach Tagawa "Coach Tagawa will provide our team with international depth and experience. We will be including her experience with warm-up and conditioning immediately into our regular regime. Also, her role as a former pitcher has provided us with invaluable reps of live pitching to prepare our athletes to be more successful offensively. I am thrilled she has chosen our program to learn, grow, and give back to those who love the sport just as much as herself."
