Miranda Kramer - Western KY

"Myndie has been one of the best things that has happened to me personally. From 6th grade on to my pro career she continues to work with me. I continually use her workouts, way of teaching, and tools throughout my coaching career. You learn a lot from her not only physically with pitching but also mentally which is a big part of the game, and surely helped me along the way. I owe a lot of my success to her and can never thank her for what BreakThrew Fastpitch has given me. It is a relationship I am forever grateful for and would recommend to anyone and everyone."

Jackie Bishop - Missouri Western

"Myndie is a fearless coach who dared me to dream big and tap into my true potential. Fall 2020 I will be going into the Missouri Western Hall of Fame. Without Myndie's ability to set a solid competitive foundation for me at a young age, I truly don't believe I would be accepting that honor. She's the best in the game. Period! Everyone always told me I never threw the ball hard enough to be a pitcher and she wasn't ever phased by that which grew confidence inside of me. She made me believe I could be good throwing differently/moving the ball! I can only hope if I ever have a daughter someone makes her believe in herself the way she made me believe in myself.. no matter if it's piano, dancing, soccer...whatever!"

Kylie Vry - Mississippi State

"Myndie is the reason I went from a novice 8 year old softball player to a D1 SEC pitcher and now to an instructor myself. She is the first person I turn to for questions or advice about pitching and whose opinion I trust the most when it comes to coaching the future generations of pitchers! Myndie’s instruction has instilled in me a work ethic and mentality that has spilled over into my everyday life."

Cassidy Blackford - Western KY

"Not only did training with Myndie develop my softball skills, but I learned the importance of hard work, discipline and believing in yourself. She prepared me for college softball by giving me a solid foundation of pitching mechanics and encouraging me to believe in myself. Myndie shaped me into more than a softball pitcher, I learned what it takes to be successful in college and life after softball - hard work, commitment and confidence!"
