  • The Planetarium at UT Arlington
    Living in a big metropolitan area has its downsides, as the night sky is blocked by light pollution that blocks out the stars. At the Planetarium, guests are seated underneath a 60-foot-diameter dome, where they peer skyward at stunning images of the universe, educational films, and Texas stargazing, which is presented live by a scientist at The Planetarium at UT Arlington. A Digistar 5 DLP Projection system displays its photonic glory across the cosmic screen as booming surround sound rumbles into ears. Regularly scheduled public shows educate and thrill guests with explorations of distant stars and music shows.

During his clinics, he spends much of the time working on the sport's most essential motion—the swing—in private hitting lessons. But to help build all-around athletes he and his four trainers lead sessions geared toward pitching, fielding, catching, and the closely related art of hitting softballs. A high school athlete himself who went on to pitch for the University of Texas at Arlington and double-A minor league baseball with the Chicago White Sox for 2 1/2 seasons, his love for the game shines through in his training sessions. "(I) love teaching baseball to kids and helping them make their high school teams," he says.
