COACH ANDREW SIMONSON

Pitching, Throwing Coach & Arm Care Specialist

I’ve played baseball since I was five and as soon as I was able to pitch I jumped in headfirst and never looked back. I loved pitching and baseball. I was the main closer for my high school varsity baseball team at East Ridge High School. Then I went to the University of Northwestern-St. Paul. I pitched all four years started in right field. As a pitcher, my primary role as a closer.


My class at UNW helped put them on the map for baseball as this past year (my senior year) we made it all the way to the sweet 16 for D3 NCAA baseball. Alongside my own playing, I also coached for two summers in Woodbury. Where I helped lead a team to win a gopher state championship.


I enjoy coaching because I love seeing the effort pay off. When a kid puts in so much work and then you can see the results in a game. It brings a huge smile to my face to see success find them. These things help propel me into helping someone succeed.

COACH TOMMY THOMPSON

Softball Pitching, Baseball/Softball Throwing & Arm Care Specialist

I have been involved in the baseball and softball scene for many years.  I played baseball for Baldwin-Woodville with two first-team all-conference awards, as well as being the Middle Border Conference player of the year in 2003.

Since 2009, I have been playing men’s major fastpitch softball all over the world.  I played with the Minnesota Angels (top finish 4th in world-2013) and Circle Tap Dukes (top finish 2nd in world-2018).  I have had the privilege of playing with the top players in the world, and am a better player and coach because of it.  I have been part of the NAFA (North American Fastpitch Association) and ISC (International Softball Congress) all world teams.  The American Softball Association named me an All-American in 2010.


I returned to Baldwin-Woodville to coach softball from 2010-2018.  In that time we made three state tournament appearances with one championship and two runner-up awards.  At BW, I focused on defense, hitting, and pitching.  

I live in River Falls with my wife, our twin daughters, and our dog Remi.  I look forward to helping athletes better themselves and better their teams.

COACH MASON ANDERSON

Throwing Coach, QB Lead Coach & Arm Care Specialist

I started working out with coach C. as a middle schooler during his time as the Head Baseball Coach in Ellsworth. His exercises and drills always seemed to have direct positive effects on my pitching and throwing development at a young age.


Prior to my senior year of football, we started working solely on my throwing mechanics and arm care as I entered my third season as the starting quarterback for Ellsworth. I bought into his program and I saw a major change in my performance and confidence.

 After I graduated, Coach C asked me to help his summer Pitch, Pass, and Throw program and I continue to help around my college schedule.


I have enjoyed helping athletes and QBs develop athletic skills and knowledge of their sport. In particular, I absolutely love watching the athletes gain confidence from the drills we give them and as well sharing things I have learned through my experiences. I look forward to continuing to help Coach C. and the athletes I am blessed to work with.
