Gavin Osteen, who played 13 years with the A's, Orioles, Dodgers, Pirates, and Angels organizations, has spent the last six years teaching pitching and hitting fundamentals to kids 6-19 years of age, from all over Central PA. 

It all started one off-season while he was still playing pro ball, with 1-5 lessons per week, and has grown into his full-time job, making retirement from pro baseball an easy transition.  " I loved playing pro ball, but at the end of my career, I found that I was getting much more satisfaction teaching kids the game than playing it. 

  There is no better feeling than seeing the look in these kids' eyes when they do something that they never thought they could do, like throwing harder, making the ball move, etc.  This is where I'm supposed to be."   

           Gavin grew up in Annville and currently lives in the Hershey area with his wife Jennifer.  His son, Derrick, is a student at William & Mary and plays on the schools baseball team.   Gavin also has a toddler son, Nathan. Gavin's 1986 Annville-Cleona Baseball team won the AA State Championship.

For Neil Weber, owning and operating Full Count is a dream come true.  "Working with the game's youth has been a long time passion and Full Count offers the perfect environment." Neil has 8 years of professional playing experience in which career highlights include pitching in the Major Leagues with the Arizona Diamondbacks and winning 2 Eastern League Championships with the Harrisburg Senators. 

         Originally from Southern California, Neil, his wife Tara, and two daughters, have called Central Pennsylvania home for 10 years.

Jason Sugden joins Full Count as an established hitting coach.  He is from Harrisburg's East Shore where he starred at Central Dauphin High School as a switch hitting outfielder.  Jason then attended East Carolina University before getting drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in 2001.  Jason is a great addition to the Full Count staff.
