Josh Power-Gomez

trainer, Rip Baseball Center

PowerGomez Baseball is led by Josh Power-Gomez. Josh has been part of some very advanced programs and has been trained by the best. As a player Josh played with intensity, and carried a ‘leave it on the field’ mentality. Josh now passes that on in his coaching and training.

Josh, at his young age has experience and talent that most don’t possess until later in years, and many never do – he understands the dynamics of the game and the mechanics of offensive and defensive play. He lives and breathes baseball – he leads with intensity.

Josh coached High School as a head coach for Westlake, and is presently Head Coach of Newbury Park High School JV team. Josh’s competitive travel ball / tournament coaching experience includes So Cal Cardinals scout teams, Bownet Elite, Rip Baseball, PowerGomez tournament teams and Jack 9; and trains as many as thirty-five players a week, from age ten to high school, college and MLB players.
