Lightning Baseball

College Coaches Testimonials

"I trust the staff at the Lightning Baseball Club to prepare young men for the future. Baseball can teach life lessons and players I have coached from the Lightning program have had an awareness about these lessons and skills. There are multiple ways to have success in baseball but I agree with the teachings Dave and Matt Tucker are instilling in their players. I have had the privilege of coaching college baseball for 22 years; 17 years as a head coach. We all learn from experience and my experiences have taught me to recruit players who have the desire and work ethic to succeed on and off the field at the collegiate level. Players from the Lightning program are aware of the commitment and work ethic it takes. I will continue to recruit players from the Lightning program."

Mike Jones

Western Nebraska CC Head Coach


"Lamar Community College baseball is one of the top junior college programs in the state of Colorado, and the majority of our top players come from travel team organizations. I consider the Lightning Organization to be one of the best in the state of Colorado. What Dave Tucker and his staff do for the high school player is unmatched in the state. When I get a Lightning player and I get a lot they have been well coached and they know the game of baseball. If I were a high school player in the state of Colorado I would most definitely join the Lightning program to take my game to the next level."

Scott Crampton

"Dave Tucker and the Lightning baseball club does a tremendous job of moving players on to the next level. Dave is very realistic about the ability of the player and will do his very best to find the best fit possible for the school and the player. His coaches are very approachable and will tell you exactly what you want/need to know about every player. Alongside the strong character of his players, there is a lot of talent in his organization."
