At EVT Baseball we offer exclusive baseball training, camps, and group clinics. We offer private lessons to develop the complete player with options to attend specialized clinics that include development and advancement of skills sets per position, strength training/recovery guidance, and classroom video review for grooming baseball players in every aspect of the game.
Coming from Orange County, CA, and permanently relocating back to his wife's home town, Erik has a love for kids and baseball, teaching everything from the basic fundamentals of the game to coaching and training specialized positions of the game.
Erik played collegiate ball in Seattle, Washington and has played and coached professionally since 2014.
In 2016 he played for the New Hampshire Wild in the Empire League, the Sommerton Caneros in the Desert League, followed by coaching the California City Whiptails during an injury filled 2017. In 2019, he played for the Great Bend Boom in the Western League and the Salina Stockade in Houston Spring League and recreationally for the Urbank Bombers.
Erik is offering professional hitting, fielding, or pitching lessons at NorthStar Sports Complex, Rock Maple Baseball Academy and more.
Erik also hosts specialized clinics at North Star Academy, partnering with Peak Performance, for an all encompassing program featuring small group training, video review and strength training, to develop well rounded, advanced skill sets for all players with a specialized position.
Erik's wife, Jessica Van Tuyl (Gilbertson), returns to Alexandria, MN to permanently reside where her roots were originally formed.
Jessica is a Business Lender at MMFCU and serves on the Board of Directors for the Alexandria Area Baseball Association. She is also co-owner of EVT Baseball.
Jessica has a love for being actively involved with volunteering and fund-raising within the community and for non-profit organizations.
Jessica shares the love of baseball, with her husband Erik, as well as: going to concerts, fishing, arts and crafts, baking bread and desserts, and spending time with their daughter Adley (Aurora is on the way!) and our four-legged friend, Winston.
